A mystery no more! Following Ben Affleck’s split from Lindsay Shookus, the 46-year-old actor is seemingly moving on with Shauna Sexton, and Us Weekly is giving you five things to know about his rumored new love interest.
The two were first spotted out on Thursday, August 16, while dining together at Malibu’s hot spot Nobu. The outing came just four days before a source confirmed to Us Weekly that Affleck and the Shookus, 38, had called it quits on their year-long relationship.
And it wasn’t just a nice dinner out. Affleck and the 22-year-old model were seen hitting up the drive-thru at a Santa Monica Jack In the Box on Sunday, August 19, and noshed on french fries together in Affleck’s Range Rover. Following their fast food run, Sexton headed back to the actor’s home and “spent the night,” a source tells Us Weekly.
