Earlier this week, TMZ claimed Affleck and Shookus were over "for good".

A source said: "They are still very amicable and have stayed friends. They both tried to make it work, but the distance just proved to be too much for them right now. Family comes first for them both."

Ben lives in LA to be near the three kids he has with Jennifer - Violet, 12, Seraphina, nine, and Samuel, six, while Lindsay lives in New York to be near her son and work on Saturday Night Live.

The couple were last photographed together in July in Puerto Rico, a month before their split was confirmed.

Ben and Lindsay were first linked in July of 2017, and they made their first official appearance together in September of 2017.

Since then Affleck and Shauna have been spotted together twice. The actor is reportedly 'in a good place' and is 'doing well' after recent reports surfaced that he and Jennifer, 46, were sent legal warnings by the court for 'dragging their feet' over their divorce.

"He is in a good place mentally and has worked really hard to get here," a source said. "He continues to focus on himself and the health of his relationships."
