Affleck and Shookus’ relationship was first reported back in July 2017, three months after Affleck and Jennifer Garner filed for divorce.
They broke up a year later, and shortly after Affleck was seen out with 22-year-old Playboy model Shauna Sexton and Shookus deleted her Instagram account.
In March, Shookus was spotted at the premiere of Affleck’s Netflix film Triple Frontier as the two “struck up a friendship again” and were “spending time together.”
According to People‘s source, “his focus is on working on himself, his family and his close relationships.”
