Ben Affleck might no longer be hiding that he's dating Saturday Night Live (SNL) producer Lindsay Shookus in the last few months. But his ex-wife Jennifer Garner reportedly confronted the woman back in 2015 about their affair.

According to People, when Jennifer Garner found out that her husband has been secretly meeting with Lindsay Shookus in New York, the actress made it a point to discuss this with her in person. Garner found the opportunity while she was on a work trip in New York, where SNL is filmed.

Sources told the news outlet that the SNL producer and Ben Affleck had been seeing each other since 2013, while Lindsay Shookus was herself married.

She and husband Kevin Miller, who also worked for SNL, parted ways in 2014.

Not backing down

Despite discussing with Lindsay Shookus, her affair with Ben Affleck did not end. "Lindsay refused to back down or quit the affair," the source revealed.

It was allegedly Jennifer Garner who told the woman's husband she was cheating on him with hers, according to Page Six. The actress showed Kevin Miller her proof in a form of text messages between Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus.

New relationship

Sources supposedly in the know about the actor's life said the relationship between Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus is new. They allegedly got together after the "Batman vs. Superman" actor separated with his wife.

But the Huffington Post reported that Ben Affleck and his girlfriend were regulars at the Mandarin Oriental, a hotel in New York, as far back as 2013.

The actor mostly visited her in the city but they would also fly back and forth to Los Angeles, where Affleck’s family is based.

Staying away

Despite the reports about her failed marriage, Jennifer Garner is reportedly staying away from all the drama these days. According to Entertainment Tonight (ET), the actress instead would like to focus on her three kids with Ben Affleck, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8 and Sam, 5.

"It’s really nice how civil they have both been able to be during all of this," a source told ET. In fact, the family spent the July 4 holiday together and they were also complete as a family unit when they went to the Bahamas last June.

Jennifer Garner is also trying to keep a positive spirit despite her personal struggles. She has also been spotted going to the gym almost four times a week.

Gossip Cop, however, reported that the actress has no plans, for now, to be in a relationship.

The ex-couple announced they were separating in the summer of 2015. Over 18 months later, the couple confirmed that they have decided to divorce instead of saving their marriage. They got married in 2005.
