After one year of dating, Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus have officially called it quits, and the Argo star wasted no time moving on to another woman. Over the weekend, cameras caught Affleck and Playboy model Shauna Sexton enjoying some French fries from a Jack In The Box drive-thru, and the two were all smiles while riding in his Range Rover. Then, a few hours later, Sexton apparently “spent the night” with Affleck.
According to Us Weekly, the fast food run and sleepover came just a couple of days after the two had a dinner date at Nobu restaurant in Malibu, but sources say that the 46-year-old actor and 22-year-old model were “not happy that there were photos.”
“Ben came in with a big team. He had bodyguards all around,” reveals an insider. “He sat outside with Shauna, and they got a lot of food.”

Meanwhile, Shookus deleted her Instagram account, and E! News is reporting that she and Affleck split about two or three weeks ago. A source says that the SNL producer and the actor are still amicable and have stayed friends, but after trying to make things work, the distance between them proved to be too much. Shookus lives in New York, while Affleck just purchased a $19 million home in Los Angeles, and she wasn’t willing to move across the country like they had previously planned.
Shookus and Affleck went public with their romance in July 2017, but multiple sources claimed they had been hooking up since 2014 before Affleck separated from Jennifer Garner. However, others claim that they didn’t start dating until April 2017.
The last time cameras caught Shookus and Affleck together was when they were in Puerto Rico late last month.

As for Sexton, she appeared to cryptically refer to Affleck in a recent Instagram post. When a fan asked if heaven had sent her, she responded, “No, just Batman,” referencing Affleck’s character in the DC Comics film franchise. However, she has seemingly deleted the comment.
Over the weekend, Affleck also spent time with the three kids he shares with Garner — Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6. Affleck and Garner split in 2015 after ten years of marriage but didn’t file for divorce until last year.
Recently, the judge in their divorce case told the former couple that they needed to produce the proper paperwork to finalize their divorce or else he would dismiss the case.
Ben Affleck has not commented on his relationship with Shauna Sexton.
