Ben Affleck heads back to rehab after intervention
The actor was escorted by ex-wife Jennifer Garner
CELEBRITY Ben Affleck
It looks like Ben Affleck is headed back to rehab for his alcohol addiction, and who was the one to get him there? None other than his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
After paparazzi snapped photos of Affleck getting an alcohol delivery to his home two days ago, Garner was spotted picking up the 'Batman' star to get him the help he needs.
According to reports from TMZ, Garner headed to the Pacific Palisades-based home to stage an intervention around 6:00 pm, then took Affleck to the Los Angeles facility.
Signs that Affleck was suffering from a severe relapse began to show after the star broke up with his longtime girlfriend Lindsay Shookus. This will be the third rehab stint for Affleck. The star first got help with his alcohol addiction in 2001, then once more last December. He has also participated in outpatient programs for many years.
Affleck and Garner filed for divorce in April 2017, however, it has yet to be finalized. They have three children together.
