Jennifer Garner reportedly warned Ben Affleck’s current girlfriend Lindsay Shookus to stay way from him years ago.
According to People magazine, Garner, who filed for divorce from Affleck in April, found out he and Shookus were having an affair in 2015. Garner confronted the “Saturday Night Live” producer with text messages.
At the time, not only was Ben Affleck Married to Jennifer Garner, but Lindsay Shookus was married to fellow “SNL” producer Kevin Miller. Although still married, Miller and Shookus were separated at the time, and Garner and Affleck separated in 2015.
Garner reportedly had a conversation with Miller after finding out about what was going on between Affleck and Shookus.
“She had proof,” a source told People, but “Lindsay refused to back down or quit the affair.”
Affleck and Shookus were recently spotted spending time together in Los Angeles, just months after Garner officially filed divorce papers with the actor.
However, a separate source told People that the now rumored couple “did not date while either of them were married,” and were only friends. “They started dating when they were separated,” the insider added.
