Relationships & Controversies
TMZ.com reported on August 17, 2018 that Shauna Sexton was spotted having dinner with Ben Affleck at Nobu in Malibu, which sparked romance rumors in the media. There was already huge interest in the love life of the Oscar-winning actor after his 10-year-old marriage to actress Jennifer Garner ended in 2015. Interestingly, he was involved in a year-long relationship with 'Saturday Night Live' producer Lindsay Shookus since 2017, but the media was unable to spot the two together, and the actor didn't celebrate his birthday with her either. Moreover, the media outlet also reported spotting a moving van in front of his $19 million mansion in Pacific Palisades about a week ago, which also fuelled split rumors with Shookus. While Sexton and Affleck had left the restaurant separately on their possible first date night, a couple of days later the paparazzi was given the opportunity to frame them together as they went on another date together on his Range Rover, driving towards Jack in the Box in Santa Monica for lunch. They also took a lazy stroll after having food. The same day, Shookus reportedly returned Affleck's Bentley car to a parked garage in Santa Monica, from where it was picked up by his assistant. People.com also reported that Shookus had already deleted her Instagram account after the report of Ben Affleck’s new romance was published. After being spotted in each other's company twice within a few days, the couple has certainly left the media in a frenzy, but not everyone is happy with the renowned actor dating someone less than half her age.
Shauna Sexton was born on January 20, 1996 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, to Sean Sexton and Tracie Reed Sexton. Her father served in the US Navy from 1991 to 2011.

After school, she and her family moved to Los Angeles, California. She took training as a veterinarian technician for a year and later moved up to surgery.
