Cape Town - It seems Ben Affleck is at it again.

The 46-year-old was spotted having dinner at a Malibu restaurant on 16 August with Shauna Sexton, a 22-year-old Playboy model – with his girlfriend Lindsay Shookus deleting her Instagram account a few days later, reports E! News.

A source told the news outlet the Aquaman star and model were on a date and that Ben "feels it is over with Lindsay”.

He has dated 38-year-old Lindsay, a Saturday Night Live producer, for more than a year now. But in the past month the two haven’t been pictured together, with Lindsay not even attending her beau’s birthday party on 15 August, sparking rumours that they’ve been split for a while.

"If your boyfriend is seen with a Playboy model out in public at dinner, then I’d say Ben and Lindsay have been split for a while," a source told Page Six.

It’s not the first time the Gone Girl star has been linked to cheating scandals – in 2016, his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner (46), confirmed to Vanity Fair that Ben had cheated on her with the children’s now former nanny, Christine Ouzounian (31).

The rumours of the 46-year-old’s split from Lindsay comes two months after a source told ET Online how happy the couple were together.

"Lindsay and Ben are very much in love,” the source told the news outlet.

"During Ben and Jennifer [Garner's] split, Lindsay truly felt villainised. Every day she spent with Ben out in the world for people to see felt like another day of public scrutiny, but her love for Ben was worth it. They both learnt to stick by each other during those painful months," they added.
