Ben Affleck’s brother Casey is telling all on the actor’s progress in rehab. The man was in attendance at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier today, where his brand new comedy film The Old Man and the Gun premiered.
While there, he chatted with ET, updating fans on Ben’s recovery.
‘He’s doing great. He is in rehab, and he is recovering and seems to be doing well,’ Casey shared with the news outlet.
As you may know, Ben decided to check into an institution and receive help for his alcohol addiction problems after ex Jennifer Garner reportedly convinced him.
As a result, she was the one to drive him there on August 22 as well.
Before his relapse, the actor was spotted with Playboy model Shauna Sexton, 22, who is supposedly his current fling.
That being said, a lot of fans and reportedly, even close friends, have accused her of influencing him to drink again something she previously addressed and denied on social media.
One reason for the suspicion is that the model is known to be quite the party girl, but she insists she would never disrespect someone’s struggle to stay sober by offering them drinks or even drinking alcohol around them.
A source tells ET that ‘He’d stayed in touch with her [Shauna] the entire time that he was in rehab, and all the people at the facility and his friends had massive concerns about it because she is not sober. She is giving him false confidence and that is their biggest concern.’
Sexton was spotted visiting him in rehab not too long ago suggesting they are still going strong.
