Jennifer Garner Is Getting Ben Affleck Back Into Rehab

Sunday, 26 Aug, 2018

Getty Ben Affleck is reportedly going to rehab after an intervention from ex-wife Jennifer Garner, per a report by TMZ.

According to the TMZ report, Garner met with Affleck at his home in the Pacific Palisades, asking him to get help.

Last year, Affleck said he completed treatment for alcohol addiction and admitted that it was an issue he would "continue to confront". He was spotted receiving an alcohol delivery outside his home at the start of the week.

Affleck has starred as DC Comics hero Batman in two films, but rumors that he is being jettisoned for a third Batman film have dogged him since the debut of Justice League. He sought treatment for alcohol abuse in 2001 and completed another residential program last December. Meanwhile Affleck flame Shauna Sexton-a 22-year-old Playboy model who tells People her drink of choice is "whiskey all day"-strolled along the Malibu beach Wednesday in a green bikini as Affleck entered rehab".

The actor has been open about his battles with alcoholism in the past.

A source told the site: "Jen emptied out on Ben and he seemed to be on the offensive".

"This has been a rough few days and [Jennifer] wants nothing more than to feel [Ben] is getting the help that he needs", a source said.

The news regarding Ben and Lindsay's split comes after the Oscar-winning star's ex-wife Jennifer garner arrived at his house in a auto to "return him to rehab". Added the source: "What she ultimately cares about is his sobriety and whether she can rely on him to co-parent".

This isn't Affleck's first stint in rehab, as he has been seen at many different rehab centers in LA over the years.

Here's hoping everything works out for Ben's health, and the family's overall well-being - especially the couple's three children.
