Jessica Alves has revealed she has been banned from dating app Tinder for allegedly ‘violating protocols.’
The social media star, 37, said she felt ‘discriminated against’ after she claimed her account was suspended permanently after just 24 hours on the site – although Tinder has since confirmed Jessica’s account has been restored.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, she said: ‘I am still single and looking and even working on a dating show for Netflix but due to COVID things are a bit slow .

‘So I tried to use Tinder and after 24 hours on it my account was banned and suspended.
‘I had a lot of messages but I was chatting just with one man, tall, blond, muscular, attractive and independent and before I could give him my number my account got suspended.
‘I then contacted Tinder via email and they said that I can’t never use Tinder again because I have violated their protocols when I clearly haven’t done nothing.
Musing on the possible reasons for her ban from Tinder, Jessica continued: ‘I was probably reported by users thinking that my account was fake also. Now I wonder is it because I am a trans woman that I got suspended?

‘Don’t I have the same civil rights to do online dating specially at COVID times where we can’t really meet people?
‘It is very frustrating and I feel very discriminated against by Tinder.’
Reasons why Tinder will ban an account include posting nudity or sexually explicit content, impersonation, harassment, copyright infringement or posting violent or gory content.
A Tinder spokesman told MailOnline that Jessica’s account was temporarily suspended but has now been restored.
They said: ‘We have now looked into this and can confirm that the account was temporarily suspended while Tinder confirmed the authenticity of the profile.
‘The account is now fully restored and Tinder has advised Jessica Alves to add photo verification to her profile, which visually displays her profile as being verified and genuine by Tinder.
‘Tinder fundamentally believes that gender is not binary and supports inclusivity and acceptance of all people.
‘Tinder strives to be the most inclusive platform for meeting new people, working closely with organizations around the world to constantly improve its practices.
‘Today, Tinder offers members around the world the opportunity to select from more than 50 gender identities and 9 sexual orientations.
Jessica, who has been seen packing on the PDA with her ex-beau Giacomo Urtis of late, recently sparked speculation when she stepped out with a ring on her wedding finger.
She said: ‘I then contacted Tinder via email and they said that I can’t never use Tinder again because I have violated their protocols when I clearly haven’t done nothing’
The star revealed it was a sentimental item given to her by her late father Roserval, who died in August.
She said: ‘It is a gold ring with a diamond that I have been given by my father today, it has been 2 months that he died and I feel very upset that I did not have the chance to say goodbye and since it is a very high valued ring with a lot of sentimental attachment to it I was wearing it when I landed back in London from Milan.’
Last week Jessica was pictured being helped into an ambulance before being rushed to hospital in Milan after suffering paralysis in her arm.
Talking to MailOnline while waiting to see a doctor, Jessica admitted her arm was possibly now infected as a result of self-medicating with steroid injections.
Jessica said: ‘My feet and legs are swollen. I injected myself in the arm over the weekend and I’ve had an allergic reaction.
‘Every time I eat since my recent surgery, my limbs swell up and it hurts – the steroid injections help. I was due to fly to London today but now I can’t go.’
Jessica has been swollen since the nine litres of silicone oil she had put into her bottom travelled down her legs and feet.
She had some of the solution removed in a painful operation, but she has been suffering from swelling since which is exacerbated when she eats things like pork.
Jessica has also been feeling under the weather since undergoing her twelfth nose job in recent weeks.
She was also left with a hole in her chin after having filler on top of her chin implant which got infected.
