Ben Affleck is reportedly dating Lindsay Shookus after officially filing for divorce from Jennifer Garner in April.


Shookus is a producer on Saturday Night Live and has been getting cozy with the Batman actor as of late. While the alleged new couple have yet to confirm their relationship, a source tells E! that they are “in the early stages” of romance. Shookus recently visited Affleck while he was in London for work, and they caught a showing of the play Ferryman abroad.

Garner and Affleck signed their divorce papers in April 2017 and asked for joint legal and physical custody of their three children, VioletSamuel, and Seraphina. Various gossip stories have come out since then, alleging that Garner was flirting with other Hollywood stars and cozying up. She defended herself against these claims, proving them untrue. Some even are saying now that Affleck was dating Shookus before officially splitting with Garner.

Shookus, 37, was spotted last month getting into a vehicle outside Affleck’s new Los Angeles apartment. And Thursday, they were seen dining at Giorgio Baldi. “They arrived in a limo,” a sourced told People. “They looked happy. They had a quick dinner and then returned to Ben’s house. They are spending time together in L.A., Lindsay is staying at Ben’s new house.”

Shookus has been working on SNL since 2002, and also worked on Tina Fey comedy 30 Rock.
