Maybe it will work the second time around. Ben Affleck is apparently not a single man anymore as he has found himself back in the arms of his ex-girlfriend Lindsay Shookus.
According to Us Weekly, the actor, 46, and the Saturday Night Live producer, 38, “are totally back on” just six months after they went their separate ways. The insider adds that the pair have “picked up right where they left off.” This news is coming after we learned that Lindsay was reportedly all about getting back with the Good Will Hunting costar.
“She wants him back,” a source close to Lindsay told In Touch just last month. They added, “She hasn’t moved on yet and still reaches out to check on how he’s doing. It’s no secret that she still loves Ben.” The insider even added that Lindsay is still following the Oscar winner on social media and continues to ‘Like’ the photos he posts on Instagram. “She’s kind of obvious about it,” the source said. “Trust me, if he called today and said let’s meet up, she’d be there in a heartbeat.”
Lindsay originally broke it off with Jennifer Garner‘s ex because, according to People, she just couldn’t deal with Ben’s struggles with addiction. “Lindsay had been supporting Ben’s sobriety and going to meetings with him,” a source said of the pair at the time. “She had him in meditation and they were doing it together. His recovery was something that was very important to both of them.” The insider added, “It was very hard for her to break up with Ben, but she knew he wasn’t getting better and that it was time for her to step aside. She was trying to stay as close to him as possible so that he would stay on the right path, but ultimately it just wasn’t possible. She knew she had to let him hit bottom.”
But now that the director has cleaned his act up, and he’s in the “best shape of life,” perhaps Lindsay feels it’s the perfect time to get things going again.
