More details continue to surface about Ben Affleck's relationship with Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus. Last week, news broke that the two are dating. Over the weekend, it was reported that they had started their relationship while Affleck and Jennifer Garner were still married. Now, reports say Garner actually confronted Shookus about her relationship with her estranged husband.
The actress was on a work trip in New York when she approached Shookus after finding out about her relationship with Affleck in 2015, according to People. But the SNL producer "refused to back down or quit the affair," a source said. However, according to someone close to the producer, "Shookus and Garner do not have any relationship."
Despite reports that Affleck and Shookus started dating in 2013 (two years before he and Garner announced their separation), insiders close to the new couple say they were just friends at the time. Now, however, the two have gone public with their relationship, and have recently been spotted on outings and dates.
