Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus Share Luxury Apartment in NYC, Says Source
The Justice League is paying for the Upper West Side apartment and stays there with Shookus when he’s in the city, a source tells PEOPLE. The Saturday Night Live producer moved in about a month ago.
Affleck’s focus continues to be on his family and staying healthy, another family source says, adding that part of his happiness is being with Shookus.
The 2,761 square foot apartment includes 3 bedrooms, panoramic views of both Central Park and the Hudson River, a private movie theater, pool and 24/7 butler service. Apartments in the luxury building lease for an average of more than $28,000 a month.
The actor, 45, celebrated Thanksgiving with ex Jennifer Garner, 45, and their three kids — Violet, 12, Seraphina, 8 and Samuel, 5. He later took his daughters to see the hit musical Hamilton on Sunday.
He was also spotted grabbing coffee with Shookus, 37, that week, but she did not attend the family celebration Thursday, the family source previously told PEOPLE. The couple first went public with their relationship in July.
Affleck and Garner separated in 2015 and filed for divorce this April.
While he has “had a rough year” personally and professionally, the family source said “at the moment, he is doing great. He seems more honest with himself.”
