Ben Affleck and His Ex-girlfriend Lindsay Shookus are Reportedly "Back in Contact" After 5 Months Split

Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are reportedly rekindling their long broken romance.

Ben Affleck and his ex-girlfriend Lindsay Shookus are reportedly back in contact 5 months after breaking up.

According to a source to E! News, "They've known each other for years and there have been other periods of time where they didn't speak. But they always seem to end up talking again."

Another insider adds that while the exes are indeed talking again, both are more focused on their respective careers and families rather than rekindling a full-blown romance.

“He really enjoys spending time with her but his focus will remain his kids and family. I think he’s always been interested in seeing where his relationship with Lindsay could go, but these are two people who are very focused on their families and that distance between New York and L.A. is difficult sometimes.”

Affleck and the Saturday Night Live producer Shookus started dating in July 2017, just months after he and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner filed for divorce after 10 years of marriage.

Ben and Lindsay broke up last year during August due to distance barrier and busy schedules. Affleck resides in Los Angeles near his ex-wife and their three children Violet (13), Seraphina (10) and Samuel (6), while Shookus lives in New York where she shares custody of her five-year-old daughter with ex-husband Kevin Miller.
