It seems that famous actor Ben Affleck is once again linked to a scandal. Some rumors have claimed that the popular actor cheated on his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, while the two were still married. Allegedly, the affair happened in 2013 when Ben and Jennifer were a married couple.
And not only Ben is said to have cheated on his wife. We can say the same thing about Lindsay, who was also married at that time. The cheating story was first revealed by People, which claimed that the two started an affair although they were both married. Lindsay Shookus, the Saturday Night Live boss, was married to Kevin Miller, who was also a producer at the famous television show.
Well, the report indicated that the two met in New York. “They would fly back and forth, but he would mostly visit her in New York,” a source said. “They didn’t hide … They would use the Mandarin Oriental [hotel]. They were regulars,” the same insider added. “Both of them were married at the time. They were having secret rendezvous every time he came in to New York City and other places, too. Both of them were cheating on their spouses so they were very careful about it. Jen and [Shookus’] husband both found out about it around the same time.”
The two allegedly saw each other for a few years, but they finally separated. It has not been revealed when Jennifer Garner found out about this affair and if this has been the reason why she and Ben separated. Furthermore, soon after this report emerged, another report claimed that the whole story was untrue and although Ben and Lindsay have known each other for years, they were only friends.
“They’ve known each other for a while. They’re dating – it is relatively new since he has been separated. It’s still in a really early stage. He’s working on himself, he’s working on being happy and healthy,” an insider said. “There is not one reason why any marriage breaks up,” it concluded.
