Only a couple of days ago it has been reported that Ben Affleck is seeing a new lady, Saturday Night Live producer, Lindsay Shookus. The two stars were spotted having dinner together, after being seen together in London. There is no wonder after all that numerous rumors claimed that the two stars were a couple.
While these rumors are yet to be confirmed, it seems that some celebrity sites already talked about Jennifer’s reaction to the new relationship. Some insiders talking to People claimed that Jennifer is not happy at all with the fact that Ben is seeing Lindsay. Actually, this is because it has been claimed that Ben and Lindsay had an affair years ago, while the actor was still married to his former wife. Allegedly, Jennifer does not find it easy to cope with the fact that Ben is moving on with a woman he previously had an affair with.
“It’s not an easy situation for Jen,” an insider said according to People. “She knew it would happen soon. Ben just can’t be alone,” the same source explained. “It would have been easier for Jen if Ben would have just dated someone that Jen wasn’t familiar with,” the insider continued. However, another source said that despite all this, Jennifer is fine and she is focusing just on her children, putting their happiness first.
The insider said that when it comes to the children, Jennifer and Ben have previously agreed upon how to handle things. Allegedly, they will not have the children met the people there are dating, at least at first. “Jen and Ben have talked about not introducing the kids to people they date until it’s serious.” The insider said that if Ben has moved on with someone else, we cannot say the same thing about Jennifer.
According to the source, the famous actress is just focusing on her children and is just willing to protect them. As imagined, there is no official comment from either of these celebrities on the claims, so it is yet to see if any of these rumors will end up being true.
