Following his separation from Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck is reportedly dating Lindsay Shookus, the producer of Saturday Night Live, and just like Ben, Lindsay has split from her husband but sources say they remain really friendly.
A source told ET that Shookus and her ex, Kevin Miller, are amicably separated and have filed for divorce.
“They live separately but are extremely amicable,” the source says. “They split a while ago. They realized that they were stronger as friends.”
Shookus and Miller met during Shookus’ first day at Saturday Night Live in 2002. They got married in 2010. Shookus works as a producer at Saturday Night Live while Miller is now a supervising producer on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Both shows shoot in the same location, this means they still see each other all the time. Sources say they are very friendly with each other whenever they see. They share a daughter and are very good friends, such that Miller knew Shookus was dating Affleck before news of their relationship broke.
“It’s not uncommon, even now, to see them together getting coffee in the building, talking in the hallways, grabbing lunch, visiting each other on different floors,” the source said.
As for her relationship with Affleck, the source reveals: “they are just enjoying each other’s company right now.”
