Lindsay Shookus to Ben Affleck: If You Relapse, We’re Through! | Wireler
Well, it is official, of us — Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are again collectively.
We’ve recognized that for some time, however the couple clearly felt as if they wanted to sustain the charade of a platonic friendship for a couple of weeks.
We suppose that is not terribly shocking.
After all, it wasn’t all that way back that Affleck dumped Shookus for Playboy mannequin Shauna Sexton, who was rather less than half his age.
After struggling a humiliation like that, it is not shocking that Lindsay would need to give the impression that Ben had to work to win her again — whether or not or not that was really the case is anybody’s guess.
Of course, the principle impediment to this reconciliation — and seemingly the principle cause Ben and Lindsay broke up — was Affleck’s struggles with alcoholism.
Ben relapsed and checked into rehab in December of 2017 after a number of years of sobriety.
During his time with Lindsay, the Oscar winner was stated to be fortunately on the wagon.
Just days after information of their cut up went public, nevertheless, Ben was noticed paying for a supply from a liquor retailer exterior of a house the place he had reportedly been partying with Sexton.
Needless to say, it did not look good at that time.
But the pics of Ben mid-bender prompted his estranged spouse, Jennifer Garner, to stage an impromptu intervention and persuade the actor to enter rehab.
And apparently Affleck’s valiant battle to get sober factored closely in Lindsay’s determination to give him a second probability.
A supply tells Us Weekly that Lindsay agreed to take him again largely “because she was impressed that he’d gone back to rehab and was sober.”
The supply provides that Shookus has been a “very positive influence in his life.”
The insider goes on to say, “He’s in a good place and works hard on himself every day. He’s much stronger at this stage.”
Back in February, a supply knowledgeable Us that Ben and Lindsay had been tentatively hanging out once more.
“They’ve been talking and have seen each other again,” the insider claimed.
“Ben is in a much better place health-wise, and is a lot happier.”
These says Ben and Lindsay are “are completely again on,” the identical tipster reveals.
Great information for all concerned — although it appears like the way forward for this relationship is contingent on Ben’s skill to stay on his greatest habits.
