Ben, 47, and Katie met on the VIP dating app Raya “a few months ago" and have been quietly seeing each other since. "They’re very into each other,” a source told Us Weekly. A second source told the outlet that although the pair have a connection, it's "nothing that serious at this time.” According to her profile on the social network Stage 32, Katie studied film scoring at Berklee College of Music and is currently working as a film composer in Los Angeles.

The Batman star acknowledged his relapse when he spoke to a videographer while arriving at ex Jennifer Garner's home the following day. "Well, you know, it happens. It’s a slip, but I’m not going to let it derail me,” he said.

After his most recent rehab stint, Ben released a statement and addressed his struggle with addiction. "This week I completed a forty day stay at a treatment center for alcohol and remain in outpatient care. The support I have received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It's given me strength and support to speak about my illness with others," he wrote at the time.

He continued, "Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle. Because of that, one is never really in or out of treatment. It is a full-time commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family. So many people have reached out on social media and spoken about their own journeys with addiction. To those people, I want to say thank you. Your strength is inspiring and is supporting me in ways I didn't think was possible. It helps to know I am not alone. As I've had to remind myself, if you have a problem, getting help is a sign of courage, not weakness or failure. With acceptance and humility, I continue to avail myself with the help of so many people and I am grateful to all those who are there for me. I hope down the road I can offer an example to others who are struggling."
