Ben Affleck is reportedly on his way back to rehab following an intervention from his estranged wife Jennifer Garner.
Garner was seen arriving at Affleck’s home earlier Wednesday afternoon and leaving with him a few hours later, reportedly on their way to a treatment facility. It will be the third time Affleck has entered rehab, having done so in 2001 and as recently as 2017, announcing in March of last year that he’d completed treatment for alcohol abuse. However, Affleck was photographed receiving a delivery of alcohol outside his home on Monday.
Though it could have had something to do with the 22-year-old Playboy Playmate he’s currently dating (a big fan of whiskey), it’s rumored that Garner wants Affleck’s sober before she’ll agree to a finalize a custody arrangement for their three kids.
“Is she happy about him hanging out with a very young Playboy model? Certainly not,” a source says. “But her concern right now is not who he is dating. What she ultimately cares about is his sobriety and whether she can rely on him to co-parent.”
His first time in rehab was in 2001. In March 2017, Affleck announced that he had completed treatment for alcohol addiction.
“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” he wrote on Facebook. “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
