After a shocking breakup with girlfriend Lindsay Shookus and a week of partying with a Playboy model, it appears that Ben Affleck has admitted he has a problem and was transported to rehab by none other than Jennifer Garner. Read on for the details on her intervention.
A source told RadarOnline.com exclusively that Jennifer arrived at Ben’s house late Wednesday, August 22, afternoon. “Ben was a mess. He was talking but you couldn’t understand what he was saying,” the person said.
His estranged wife, remained visibly stoic. “Jen was just serious. She looked like she was holding back tears. Seems like it’s not the first time she’s had to do this.”
When it was time for the former couple to leave, the eyewitness explained “it was all business.” The person continued, “Jennifer reversed the car into the driveway and whisked Ben into the backseat. He was sweaty, puffy, looking quite out of it. Jen rested her chin on her hand as she drove and just looked ahead.”
After the Batman actor was caught allegedly carrying a case of beer bottles earlier this week, a source told RadarOnline.com, that he was “off the wagon.”
Apparently, it was this relapse that caused SNL producer Lindsay to call off their relationship in the first place. The insider explained, “His behavior was a big turn off to Lindsay, who prides herself on her work and her motivation for life.”
This week, just days after his split with Lindsay the 46-year-old was seen partying it up with Playboy Playmate, Shauna Sexton, which reportedly neither shocked nor surprised Jennifer. “She realized a long time ago that she cannot fix Ben and that his problems are not hers to solve,” an insider shared with Us Weekly.
However, the mother of his children seems to have changed her tune a bit and helped him towards the first step of treatment.
