Ben Affleck has a new leading lady.
The Oscar winner is currently dating Lindsay Shookus. Although the couple are apparently still “in the early stages” of their relationship, sources claim that their affair started in 2015. It was the same year Affleck and ex Jennifer Garner filed for divorce.
To recap, Affleck and Garner – who have 2 daughters and a son together – announced their split in June 2015 and officially filed for divorce earlier in April. Shookus, on the other hand, has a daughter with Kevin Miller, a fellow “Saturday Night Live” producer. US Weekly claimed that Shookus “was married and had a baby and left her husband to be with Ben“.
As previously mentioned, the 44-year-old Oscar-winning actor and the 37-year-old veteran SNL Producer started seeing one another approximately 3 years ago. “They were not casually dating – they were having a full-blown affair. They were sleeping together, sending each other cute texts and meeting up whenever they could,” an insider told the publication.
However, Affleck’s rep insists that the new sweethearts only became an item 3 months ago.
