Do we hear wedding bells?! Ben Affleck, 46, is reportedly planning his future with Shauna Sexton while in rehab. According to a new report, the actor — who checked into The Canyon at Peace Park in Malibu, CA in August — is ready to tie the knot once more.
“He’s totally in love with Shauna and wants them to live together the moment he’s home, then he’ll make it official with a proposal,” an insider told Radar Online of his 22-year-old girlfriend.
ICYMI, the pair began dating just two months ago, and despite pleas from his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, to move on, they’re still going strong. In fact, his Playboy model girlfriend visited him in rehab on Sept. 16.
Ever since Ben began focusing on his sobriety, “his relationship with Shauna has gotten way more serious than anyone knows,” an insider recently revealed to Life & Style. “The circumstances might not seem ideal for starting a new romance, but Ben and Shauna actually think it’s giving them a solid foundation.”
That said, Jen doesn’t think she’s a good influence. Shauna, who likes to party and listed “whiskey all day” as her favorite drink in a recent interview, isn’t good for Ben, according to his ex. “Jen totally lost it when she found out,” a separate insider told Life & Style of the Peppermint star, who staged an intervention and drove Ben to rehab after he’d been drinking with Shauna for several days. “She told him to dump Shauna or else. It isn’t healthy.”
They added, “It’s like whatever Jen says goes in one ear and out the other. She’s furious.” Hmm… it doesn’t sound like she’ll be invited to the wedding!
