Ben Affleck Spotted With Jennifer Garner After His Release From Rehab
Ben Affleck announced Tuesday that he had just completed treatment for alcohol addiction. The actor was spotted with his estranged wife Jennifer Garner just a day later in Santa Monica.
Recent reports have claimed that Affleck and Garner have called off their divorce after an extended separation. Although the actor/producer didn’t call Garner his wife when he announced that he had been seeking treatment, he did praise her for taking care of their children in his absence.
“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” Affleck said in a Facebook post Tuesday.
“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,” he continued.
“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,” Affleck concluded.
Affleck, 44, has struggled with alcohol addiction before and spent time in a rehabilitation facility in 2001. Perhaps the actor’s most recent stint might back up reports that he and Garner are getting things back on track.
