Affleck has been going through a divorce with Jennifer Garner over the past several years. The actors share three kids together — Violent, Seraphina, and Sam — and finally finished their divorce after two years of living apart.
When it comes to Affleck’s romance with Shookus, a source claims that Garner has known about the relationship for some time and is completely fine with it.
In fact, the actress went on a Caribbean trip with Affleck over the 4th of July holiday, even though he was seeing Shookus at the time.
Based on what went down at the Emmy’s, it looks like Affleck’s relationship with Shookus is still going strong.
