On Thursday, it was reported that the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actor is now dating Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus. Oooh la la!
According to a source via E! News, the twosome’s romance is still very much “in the early stages.” Nonetheless, the pair can’t seem to get enough of each other as they recently spent some quality time together in London as Ben was there for work. How lovely!
The insider dished:
“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.”
Smart, smart. And while the love birds have tried to keep their budding romance on the down-low, they were spotted out in El Lay on Thursday evening for a quick date night. As of right now, neither Affleck nor Shookus have confirmed their relationship.
Perhaps the fact that the Live By Night director is still in the middle of divorcing the mother of his children has something to do with it?? Who knows.
As you may recall, back in April, Bennifer 2.0 filed for divorce after separating two years prior. The former flames’ split has been pretty cordial as they’ve spent major holidays together in the name of “co-parenting.” Not to mention, the once beloved powerhouse couple haven’t spoken ill of the other in the press.
We wonder what Miz Garner thinks about Lindsay?? TBH, Jen is probably just thrilled Ben is moving on. It seems as though Affleck has really gotten his life together since completing rehab and moving forward with his divorce.
At the end of the day, we’re just happy if the A-lister is happy!
