Amy Schumer is adamant about one thing – she did not meet her new boyfriend on a dating app. The Trainwreck star made the comment on Twitter and Instagram, denying that she first got to know Ben Hanisch through Bumble. The dating app connects users but requires the woman to make the first move.
"Please let the record show I have never in my life been on bumble," Amy, 34, tweeted.
When actor Josh Charles asked what Bumble was, the comedian quipped: "It's a hair product."
Amy Schumer will be taking Ben Hanisch to the Golden Globes this weekend
Fans were thrilled to hear that Amy has a new man in her life and in response to the buzz around her love life, Amy jokingly shared a photo of President Barack Obama. "Well the word is out. It's official. Here's my new boyfriend," she wrote.
Amy visited the White House earlier this week to support President Obama's call to end gun violence, and took Ben as her date. A photo that she posted on Instagram of the pair in Washington D.C. confirmed Amy's new relationship.
Ben likewise showed that he was Amy's number one fan as he shared a snap of them together and captioned it: "So proud of this babe!! #StopGunViolence."
Amy's sister Kim has given her seal of approval
It sounds like their red carpet debut will take place on Sunday at the Golden Globes. Amy shared a throwback photo of herself and her sister Kim on Instagram, writing: "#tbt me and my date to the globes #roadmanager my bf will be there too and we did NOT meet on bumble. Great site just not how we met."
A smitten Amy has already introduced furniture maker Ben to her family, and he has won their stamp of approval. "Her sister loves him and that's important because her and her sis are BFFs," a source told People.
Ben's mum Deborah has also given Amy her blessing. While the pair haven't met properly, Deborah told Time: "I think she's terrific. She's so sweet. If they're happy, I'm happy. That's all a parent can ever ask for."
