Matt Damon is planning on celebrating his birthday in style with a huge party in Las Vegas. Although Ben Affleck, Damon’s longtime friend, is still struggling to keep his sobriety after another rehab stint, insiders say he is planning on attending the boozy event.
Damon and his friends are worried about Affleck joining the festivities, but not because they want to see him stay sober. Instead, the actor is concerned that Affleck will be a major downer at the party, especially if he does not drink.
Damon is planning on having a wild night in Las Vegas, and the party corresponds to a huge UFC bout in Sin City: McGregor vs Khabib.

“Ben’s invited,” the insider dished, “but it’s more like they’re trying to dis-invite him.”
According to Radar Online, the insider claims that Affleck believes he is rehabbed enough to attend Damon’s wild bash. But Damon’s closest friends are not happy because they think the party will become all about Affleck and his sobriety.
To avoid a nightmare scenario, Damon’s buddies are coming up with a plan to prevent Affleck from getting to Vegas. Damon’s pals hope that Affleck’s ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, will keep him home.
Just last summer, Garner reportedly staged an intervention and drove Affleck to rehab. It was the third time Affleck has checked into a rehab facility over the past few years.
So far, Affleck has always gone back to drinking and attending Damon’s booze fest is probably not a good idea. Here’s to hoping Garner can talk some sense into the Daredevil star and stop him from going.

Affleck has not commented on the rumors surrounding Damon’s birthday party. The actor recently made a public appearance and has been actively working out while continuing his rehab program.
The public sighting has led to some speculation that Ben Affleck is attempting to keep his Batman gig, though nothing official has been announced.
