Ben Affleck was admitted to a rehab clinic at the urging of his ex Jennifer Garner. 

 

That reports TMZ . According to the entertainment site, things have not been going well for a while with Affleck, who was previously open about problems with alcohol.

Garner would have gone to him on Wednesday to press him to seek help. The actors have three children together. Affleck would not have needed much conviction, and the couple left for a clinic that same afternoon.

 

The Oscar winner was treated earlier for his alcohol addiction. In 2001, his spokesman said that he had spent thirty days in a clinic after deciding that a more complete life was waiting for him if he stopped alcohol.

In 2017, just after Garner requested a divorce, Affleck sought help again. He said in a statement that he had been treated for an alcohol addiction, “something that I have suffered in the past and that I will always have to live with.”
