According to a source, "Ben and Lindsay [Shookus] started their affair in 2015. They were not casually dating — they were having a full-blown affair," as reported by The Daily Mail.
The source continued, "They were sleeping together, sending each other cute texts and meeting up whenever they could."
It's also reported that Jennifer Garner and Kevin Miller, Lindsay's ex-husband were "devastated" when they discovered the affair a few years ago.
On the contrary, however, a source close to Affleck claims that this is untrue.
"Lindsay was not what led to the end of their marriage. They had a ton of other problems," the Affleck source said.
The revelation of Affleck's new relationship may not come as a huge surprise to many since he was rumored to have moved on romantically as recently as this past April.
The A-lister had reportedly been living in the family guesthouse, but moved out when he was rumored to be "casually" dating someone.
Garner and Affleck are currently co-parenting their three children, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5, as they officially filed for divorce in April.
The former couple, who spent 10 years together, filed the petition and response very amicably, and they requested joint legal/physical custody of their children.
Speaking about Affleck and Shookus, an insider said, "It's more than a summer fling. They are having fun and care for each other. It's early and they are taking it slow."
