Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus split?


Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus have reportedly split.

The 46-year-old actor - who is currently going through a divorce with Jennifer Garner, with whom he has Violet, 12 Seraphina, nine and Samuel, six - had been dating the 'Saturday Night Live' producer for over a year, but sources now say the pair have called it quits.

An insider told 'Entertainment Tonight': "They really tried to make it work and they just couldn't right now. Their families came first, but ultimately having a bi-coastal relationship was difficult. They're amicable."

The news comes after Ben was recently spotted with 22-year-old Playboy model Shauna Sexton, sparking rumours of a romance between the pair.

Meanwhile, it was claimed earlier this month that the 'Justice League' actor had Jennifer have been "dragging their feet" over their divorce, prompting a warning from the courts to speed up the process.

The couple announced they were going their separate ways in June 2015, before filing documents two years later but they are said to have angered the court by delaying divorce proceedings.

Los Angeles Superior Court is said to have told the former couple that their case is not completed because the final judgement hasn't been entered and it could be dismissed in its entirety.

The court is said to have told them: "If you fail to take the appropriate steps in your case, the court may dismiss your case for delay in prosecution."

Whilst Ben quickly moved on with Lindsay, Jennifer previously insisted she isn't "interested in dating" following her split from Ben.

She said: "I would not have chosen this life for myself or for my kids. I would not choose to be single or be in this position. It's something that we are working through. I haven't been on a date and I am not interested dating. People want to set me up and I am just like, 'No, thank you!'"
