Affleck was spotted just outside of his home resting before heading back to rehab. The actor’s fling, playboy model Shauna Sexton, was not seen with him on this particular visit, but they have seen each other since he went to rehab.
According to ET Online, Sexton has a history of alcohol related issues herself. In 2014, the 22-year-old model was charged with underage drinking and was arrested in 2017 for public drunkenness.
She was spotted hanging out with Affleck as recently as last week, raising questions about his commitment to staying sober. In fact, insiders claim that Affleck is not serious about ditching alcohol and is on the verge of a major breakdown.
How is Jennifer Garner handling Affleck’s downward spiral?
Garner has been actively trying to turn Affleck’s life around. The actress took Affleck to rehab a few weeks ago to start his treatment program. This past week, Garner was spotted in New York City and appeared in high spirits. Garner is currently promoting her upcoming movie, Peppermint, and has not addressed the rumors surrounding Affleck.
