E! News' source explained that the relationship is, "in the early stages" and the new couple recently met up in London while Affleck was there for work.

This may come as no surprise to many, as previously reported by Womanista in April that the Oscar-winning actor had begun to move on. At that time, Affleck had moved out of the family guesthouse and was supposedly dating someone "casually."

"It's more than a summer fling," said the source. "They are having fun and care for each other. It's early and they are taking it slow."

Neither Affleck or Shookus have commented on their relationship.
