Ben Affleck is back home, less than two weeks after entering rehab. Before anyone freaks out, there’s a good reason why the ‘Justice League’ star was spotted back at his place.
As we’ve previously reported, via X17Online, it appeared that Ben Affleck, 46, had returned home just 12 days after his soon-to-be ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, 46, drove him to rehab. However, after further investigation, HollywoodLife.com has learned that Ben goes to and from his house to work out during rehab. Whenever Ben returns to his home, he is always accompanied by a coach and a therapist. The earlier reporting claimed Ben’s Playboy model girlfriend, Shauna Sexton, was at the home. HollywoodLife.com has reached out on for confirmation and will update the post with any information.
Jennifer has made it very clear to Ben that “leaving rehab is not an option now,” a source close to the actress EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. While she knows that Ben’s addiction is a sickness, and that Ben “is a good and loving person,” she’s ready to say good-bye to party ben. “Sober Ben is the most amazing, kind, funny and warm person you will ever meet,” the source says, while the non-sober Ben is…not. Thankfully, it seems that Ben is doubling-down on getting clean.
Earlier reports claimed he was “on the fence” about staying in rehab, but obviously, that’s not the case anymore. Ben reportedly knows that he needs to get his act together not just for himself, but so that he can have a better relationship with his kids — Samuel, 6, Seraphina, 9, and Violet, 12. For the 18 months before his trip to rehab, his visits with his children were reportedly sporadic because of the drinking. So, the idea of being a better Ben and being a better dad is a reportedly a motivating factor for him to get his head straight.
Ben “really does want to be sober” a source close to the Argo director EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. He became more aware of what his drinking was doing to his loved ones around him and “he started accepting that he needed help.” Ben is determined to get a grip on his demons and he’s “taking his rehab treatment” seriously.
