Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are a couple, and it’s not news anymore. However, what’s shocking is that Ben Affleck was, in fact, the “other man” in Lindsay Shookus’ marriage.
Lindsay left Kevin Miller, now her ex-husband, to be with Ben, Us Weekly has reported. Miller and Shookus tied the knot in 2010, and it’s been said that it was Shookus’ relationship with Ben Affleck that led the two to end the marriage. “She was married and had a baby and left her husband to be with Ben,” the source claims.
This may come as a shock to those who have so far been thinking that it was Shookus who broke Ben and Jennifer Garner’s marriage. Jennifer Garner and Benn Affleck split in June 2015. However, since then, they have been seen together several times. But that’s understandable, given that they have children together. Jennifer filed for divorce in April.

Ben and Lindsay were having an affair for three years now, and sources say that she would often meet Ben Affleck when she flew to Los Angeles to cast for Saturday Night Live. Those who thought it was just casual dating are wrong. It was in fact, a “full blown affair.”
The sources have said that they were very much having sex and trying to meet up when they could. Their respective spouses came to know of the affair in 2015 and needless to say, they weren’t happy about it.
However, the sources have stated that Jennifer Garner was trying to put on a brave front even after she got to know about the affair. And now Jennifer has found her peace with it.

It looks like people from the Ben Affleck camp are saying that the two have only started dating three months ago, denying the three-year-long affair.
It’s come out that Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are in a “very happy” relationship. The sources say that Ben Affleck is relived that their relationship is out in the open. Given that he is so happy with what’s going on, it’s not surprising that he wants to tell the world about his new girl, Us Weekly has reported.
However, the sources have denied that it was Lindsay that led to the end of their marriage. There were several other issues with Jen and Ben’s marriage.
