Us Weekly reported in July 2017 that Ben Affleck was dating Lindsay Shookus following his June 2015 split from wife Jennifer Garner, though multiple sources later confirmed that the two had been seeing each other for about three years.
The couple were not shy about their romance after the news broke, with the Justice League star even accompanying the Saturday Night Live producer to the 2017 Emmy Awards. Us exclusively reported in November 2017 that the pair were “fully living together” in New York.
Shortly after Us revealed that Garner did not want her kids with Affleck — Violet, Seraphina and Samuel — around Shookus, the Oscar winner stepped out with Playboy model Shauna Sexton in August 2018. Days later, Us confirmed the actor’s split from the Emmy winner.
