Ben Affleck is apparently back on the dating scene three months after filing for divorce.
The new couple is “in the early stages” of their relationship but sources told E!, “It’s more than a summer fling. They are having fun and care for each other.”
Last week, Shookus reportedly made a trip to London to meet up with Affleck who is in the city for work. The pair were said to have enjoyed a date night at a showing of Sam Mendes’ play “Ferryman.”
Affleck and his estranged wife Jennifer Garner filed for divorce in April of this year, although the couple publicly announced their separation back in 2015. The divorce is amicable, with both parties requesting joint legal and physical custody of their three children, Violet (11), Seraphina (8), and Samuel (5).
The exes recently celebrated Independence Day together with their kids at a local Fourth of July festival and parade near their home in Brentwood, California.
A source previously told ET: “Ben and Jen want to keep their kids’ lives as normal as possible. They still enjoy doing activities and events as a family unit. And they also do separate things with each kid on their own.”
The Oscar winner’s new relationship with Shookus has been kept relatively quiet up until now, but the two were spotted on Thursday night (July 6) leaving dinner together in Los Angeles.
