Against the background of the appearance of Ben Affleck in the company of the young model Playboy, recently there were rumors that the actor abandoned his girlfriend, Lindsay Shukus, for the sake of a younger young woman. However, now people insist that it’s Lindsay who made the decision to part with Ben – because of the alcohol addiction of the actor.

“Lindsay supported Ben in his fight with alcoholism, went with him to meetings, they were engaged in meditation together. Its restoration was a very important goal for both of them, – tells the source of the publication People. – Lindsay was very hard to part with Ben, but she realized that he did not get better – and that it was time to step aside. She tried constantly to be around so that he would not get off the right track, but in the end it was impossible. Lindsay just wanted him to be healthy and happy. It was a difficult decision, but the only correct one. ”

Ben did not long enjoy freedom and the society of young models after parting with Shukus – the former spouse of the actor, Jennifer Garner, insisted that he once again went to the rehabilitation center, and Ben, he should be given credit, did not even protest.
