All across the Internet these days, there are cries of concern over Ben Affleck.
That's what happens when you sadly enter rehab for a third time.
But if you listen closely enough, there's another sound starting to make its way around the Web.
Or at least the possibility of a sound.
By which we mean the following:
Might wedding bells be ringing down the line for Shauna Sexton and Ben Affleck?!?
This is not anything we could have imagined writing back when the actor started dating the Playmate this summer. It seemed at the time like the epitome of a fling.
Mere weeks after talk of the romance spread throughout the globe, Affleck entered rehab because it had become clear that he fell hard off the wagon while partying with Sexton.
But... well... Sexton is still around.
She and Affleck may be about more than bumping proverbial uglies after all.
Last week, we reported that Affleck actually left his treatment center for a brief period of time in order to hang out with Sexton.
And now comes the news that Sexton paid Affleck a visit in rehab on Sunday morning.
The 22-year-old was spotted leaving the Malibu treatment facility at which Affleck has been staying at for the last three weeks, according to People Magazine and other outlets.
She was even driving Affleck’s Ford SVU at the time.
This seems like a big deal for two reasons:
FIRST, because a man does not just lend a woman his wheels unless things are very serious.
SECOND, because this means Affleck is letting Sexton see him at his most vulnerable... and that she wants to see him at his most vulnerable.
The previous assumption had been that she was just sticking around for the booze and the wealth and the Hollywood lifestyle. But here she remains. Still around.
Sexton recently clapped back at a fan on Instagram who accused her of getting Affleck “thrown in rehab.”
She made it clear that she isn't about to take misguided flak from a bunch of strangers.
“Never drank around or with him for the record,” Sexton wrote in a number of responses in the comments section of a photo of her drinking red wine, adding:
I love to drink and party! Absolutely dude. Most 22 year olds do...
"Do these mistakes mean I would disrespect someone’s hard-earned sobriety by drinking with them or in front of them? Hell no. I have limitless respect for those who take action and actually do something about it.
"With that being said, Ben is a grown ass man, baby. He makes his own decisions. Blaming a 22-year-old for someone’s 3rd time in rehab is just ridiculous.
"He is human. I am human."
Amen. Well said, Shauna.
