It seems that famous actor Ben Affleck is dealing with some problems once again. A new report has claimed that the star is undergoing treatment for alcohol addiction. The news was first reported by US Weekly, which claimed that the actor is continuing treatment for his personal issues.
Allegedly, a source close to the star told the celebrity site that Ben is still focused on dealing with his issues. “Ben’s main priorities have never wavered,” the source said, adding that “he’s focused on his family and spending time with Lindsay [Shookus].” “Dealing with this disease is something he’ll have to work on for the rest of his life and he remains focused on it,” the same insider concluded.
The fact that Ben has been dealing with some issues with alcohol addiction has been revealed back in March, when the star officially confirmed that he was under treatment for alcohol and drugs addiction. At that time, Ben also hinted to the fact that he might have to undergo treatment in the future. “I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” the famous actor said in a social media post.
The same post added that Ben wanted to focus on being a good father to his three children with former wife Jennifer Garner. “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.”
Ben also confessed that his family and friends were supporting him during those times, including his former wife. However, the actor created headlines once again in September, when he was spotted drinking in the company of his girlfriend Lindsay Shookus. The two are still dating and it seems that things are going good in this relationship.
