Ben Affleck took his new girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus, out on a romantic dinner date amid rumors that the two had cheated on their respective spouses with one another while they were both married.
Ben Affleck is certainly not hiding the fact that he has completely moved on from his soon-to-be ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, with Saturday Night Live producer, Lindsay Shookus.
Ben Affleck and SNL producer Lindsay Shookus looked smitten on their romantic date, amid claims that they had a secret affair while they were both married, according to Daily Mail.
The 44-year-old father-of-three filed for divorce from Jennifer Garner in April, but the two have been separated since 2015.
They share three children together: Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5.
A source recently claimed to Us Weekly that Lindsay and Ben began their affair in 2015, alleging that they were not just casually dating and it was serious.
Affleck was spotted with Shookus for the first time in public on a dinner date at Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles.
Ben was grinning in photos the paparazzi took of the two out on their romantic date in Los Angeles. He wore a pair of jeans with a Rolling Stones T-shirt with a gray blazer.
Lindsay, 37, wore a pair of black ripped jeans with a black floral blouse, accessorizing with a matching black purse. The Saturday Night Live producer wore minimal makeup with her blonde locks wavy and relaxed.
E! News reported that Ben Affleck was “very intimate” and “touchy” with Lindsay throughout their romantic dinner date at Giorgio Baldi.
The actor and the TV producer reportedly dined on lobster and several pasta dishes.
Eyewitnesses told reporters that the new celebrity couple kept “whispering in each other’s ears” and looked “very happy.”

Despite the reports that Ben and Lindsay had cheated on their respective spouses while they were married, an insider close to Affleck claimed that they had only been dating for about three months.
The source added that Lindsay Shookus was “not what led to the end” of Ben’s marriage to Jennifer Garner and that they “had a ton of other problems.”
Ben and his new girlfriend are reportedly still in the “early stages of their relationship,” according to E! News’ source.
Last week, the couple spent the week together in London where Ben was working. Us Weekly reported that the two had a date night watching Sam Mendes’ play, Ferryman, in the city with a romantic dinner at Gymkhana Indian restaurant in Mayfair.
The Saturday Night Live producer also stopped by the set of Justice League to see Ben while he filmed reshoots.
