American actor Ben Affleck is once again turning to rehab for treatment, according to sources close to the star.
Entertainment Tonight reports that Affleck’s estranged wife, actress Jennifer Garner, drove the ‘Paycheck’ actor to a rehab facility Wednesday.
Affleck was in the news this week after he was spotted spending time with Playboy model Shauna Sexton, raising questions whether he and “Saturday Night Live” producer Lindsay Shookus had called it quits after dating for about a year.
The 46-year-old thespian has been open about his struggles with alcohol in the past. In March 2017, he shared on his Facebook page that he’d “completed treatment for alcohol addiction,” explaining it was “something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront.”
“I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be,” Affleck wrote before acknowledging Garner. “I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
Affleck also entered rehab in 2001 for alcohol, a couple months after the debut of his World War II film “Pearl Harbor.”
Affleck and Garner announced their plans to divorce in 2015 after 10 years of marriage. They have three children together: Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6.
