Affleck’s rehab stint began weeks after he and SNL producer Lindsay Shookus split after a year together and days after he was spotted out with Playboy model Shauna Sexton a couple of times.
“Ben had been content in his relationship with Lindsay, but the travel became a lot to deal with,” another source had recently told E! News. “They talked about Lindsay moving to LA but it wasn’t going to happen. They tried hard to make it work but with their families on both coasts it was tough to have a consistent relationship. This put a strain on Ben and he started drinking again.”
