The Argo director shares three children – 13-year-old Violet, 10-year-old Seraphina and seven-year-old Samuel – with Jennifer. 

Ben and Lindsay, a TV producer, were together nearly a year before their first breakup last summer, shortly before he entered rehab again.

Across February and March, there were rumors that Ben and Lindsay were back on, but an Entertainment Tonight source alleged in April that the romance is over.

‘The distance was definitely a huge factor in their breakup,’ the insider said of Ben, based in Los Angeles, and Lindsay, who produces Saturday Night Live in New York.

Ben, who has been to rehab multiple times, underwent another stint there in the second half of last year, reportedly at Jennifer’s urging.

Last August 22, Jennifer, armed with a sober coach and a Bible, is said to have staged an intervention at Ben’s house in the slipstream of his split from Lindsay.

An insider dished to Us Weekly: ‘Ben told her he was done with Lindsay and she knew he was drinking again. Ben is not good at being alone. She knew he was in a bad place recently and that she was going to have to intervene.’

Jennifer was snapped passing a takeaway bag of Jack-In-The-Box to a red-faced Ben as she drove him to treatment for his drinking.

Amid the first Lindsay split, Ben was linked to 22-year-old Playmate Shauna Sexton, with whom he was glimpsed at such haunts as Nobu Malibu and Jack-In-The-Box.
