Ben Affleck Has a New Girlfriend

BEN AFFLECK has a girlfriend. Her name is Lindsay Shookus, and she’s a producer on “Saturday Night Live”. A source told E! News that it’s in the early stages and they’re taking it slow, but it’s, quote, “more than a summer fling.”

There are also rumors that Ben started messing around with Lindsay THREE YEARS AGO, while he was still with JENNIFER GARNER, and she was married, too . . . and this is what ended both marriages.

But other sources say that while they’ve been FRIENDS for years, they only started dating three months ago, after they were both separated.

And it sounds like Jennifer is fine with it, because she knew about it when she and Ben took the kids on vacation to the Caribbean over the 4th of July.

A couple interesting facts about Lindsay: She helped discover KRISTEN WIIG . . . and her first show working for “SNL” was hosted by Ben’s buddy MATT DAMON.
