(Fun truth: Ben has now starred in additional meltdowns than Batman motion pictures!)
In current weeks, we have been listening to persistent rumors that Ben and Lindsay are again collectively.
The couple has but to substantiate these rumors, however they have been spending an terrible lot of time collectively over the previous month or so.

Here’s hoping the third time stint in rehab will show to be the attraction for Ben.
