Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus split up just weeks after rekindling romance. The two got back together after Affleck left rehab.
The couple got back together in February, six months after they split up because Affleck had to go to rehab. According to sources, the pair have now called it quits once again because the demands of a long distance relationship were too much to keep up with.
A source told E!, “Living in different cities was a factor in their break up,” with another source telling People that after struggling to maintain the romance for a while, the two realized that their relationship “isn’t going to work.”
The source added, “She has a kid and an ex-husband and a job in New York, and Ben has his family and a job in LA. While they love and respect each other, they just realized it wasn’t going to work. They really gave it another solid try. They will always have love for each other.”
Affleck has three children who live in LA with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, who drove him to rehab and who Affleck says he still loves. His children are 13-year-old Violet, 10-year-old Seraphina, and 7-year-old Samuel. Affleck is often at his son’s baseball games, cheering from the sides.
Affleck and Shookus began dating in 2017 and split up for the first time back in August 2018.
