A PLAYBOY model claims she was rejected by dating app Bumble because she is "too hot".
Tahlia Paris, 24, was looking for love online but says moderators removed her photos hours after she signed up.
The model and DJ, from Los Angeles, often shares sexy selfies in swimwear and lingerie with her 900,000 Instagram followers.
She also posts even racier snaps on her OnlyFans account.
But she says the fully clothed pictures she posted on her Bumble dating page were "very PG" and she was puzzled when they were blocked.
Tahlia said: “I was on the app for not even a few hours because pictures I tried posting to my profile were removed even though they were normal photos.
“It happened three or four times to different pictures and Bumble only allowed one of my pictures to stay up, which was really hurting my odds in the dating app world.
“The photos I posted very were basic. One was a selfie of myself, one was a picture a friend of mine had taken at the beach.
“I tried to keep it very PG and not model-esque at all.
"I wanted guys to not stop at my profile because I’m a professional model but because I was just another average girl looking to date."
She insists none of her pictures broke Bumble's guidelines – and the real reason she was banned is that she is "too hot".
She says she also proved that it was really her and not a "catfish" using stolen photos.
Tahlia said she decided to give online dating a go after struggling to meet men due to the pandemic.
She said: “In LA, everything is completely shut down due to Covid, so I thought I would have better odds finding someone to spend time with on an app rather than hoping to meet someone at the grocery store.
“At first I was upset when they closed my account.
"But at the same time I was a little relieved because online dating for the first time was a little bit nerve-racking.
“Maybe it’s for the best. I would have to start all over with a new account and I’m not sure it’s worth it at this point.
“For now I’m at a stand-still with dating sadly, but hopefully things will open soon so I can get back out into the normal dating world.”
Bumble said: “Our photo guidelines prohibit photos of people indoors wearing swimsuits or underwear.
"Swimsuit photos are acceptable if you're outside by the pool or on the beach as you're in a natural setting to be wearing a swimsuit.”
