Ben Affleck ‘dating SNL producer Lindsay Shookus' after officially divorcing Jennifer Garner in April
Ben Affleck has finally put his split from from Jennifer Garner behind him, and is now reportedly dating SNL producer Lindsay Shookus.
The Batman actor, 44, and Lindsay are believed to have been seeing each other for around three months.
On Thursday the pair were spotted on a romantic dinner date in Los Angeles where an onlooker said the actor was being “very touchy feely”.
“Ben and Lindsay were very intimate and touchy the entire dinner. They kept whispering in each other’s ears and Ben was quite touchy with Lindsay,” they shared.
While an insider added to E! News: “It’s more than a summer fling. They are having fun and care for each other. It’s early and they are taking it slow.”
Ben and Lindsay are also said to have spent time together in London recently while he was filming.
“Ben and Lindsay have been out together in London, in Los Angeles and he has plans to go visit her in New York as well,” another insider told Us Weekly.
Ben and Jennifer, who share kids Violet, 11, Seraphina, eight, and Samuel, five, officially divorced in April after separating in 2015.
Speaking about their amicable relationship, he said: “Jen is a superhero mom. She is an amazing mother and I’m really lucky to have her as a partner to co-parent these kids with.
“We try our best, we put them first and that’s what we do.”
In March, the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice star revealed he had completed a stint in rehab to treat alcohol addiction in order to be the “best father he can be”.
He wrote: “I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be.
And Ben went on to admit he felt “lucky” to have his family and friends as well as ex Jennifer.
He added: “I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
