If you were hoping that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were going to rekindle their romance one day, don’t hold your breath.
Yep, it’s been revealed that the actor is now dating Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus.
The new couple were spotted enjoying a romantic dinner for two in LA on the 6th of July, and fresh reports claim they’re already living together.
“They are spending time together in L.A. Lindsay is staying at Ben’s new house,” a source confirms to People.
Insiders claim the pair have actually been hooking up with each other on-off for several years.
“Ben and Lindsay started their affair about three years ago,” an insider alleged to US Weekly.
“They were not casually dating — they were having a full-blown affair," one source claims.
However, a source close to Ben – who was also accused of cheating on Jen with their kids’ nanny Christine Ouzounian - denies the affair, revealing that he and Lindsay have only been dating for three months.
"Lindsay was not what led to the end of their marriage. They had a ton of other problems,” said the source.
"Ben is enjoying Lindsay’s company, and they will continue to see each other."
Regardless of whether Lindsay started off as Ben’s mistress or not, it seems Jen isn’t too happy about her being in his life.
“It’s not an easy situation for Jen,” a source tells People.
“It would have been easier for Jen if Ben would have just dated someone that Jen wasn’t familiar with.”
Plus, Ben’s new romance comes only months after Jen officially filed for divorce after splitting in June 2015.
The former couple share three kids together, Violet, 11, Seraphine, eight and Samuel, five, and are focussing on them at this time.
In fact, the family were recently spotted together as they all attended the 4th of July parade in Brentwood, California earlier this month.
