Multiple reports are saying that Ben Affleck has reportedly checked into a rehab facility after his estranged wife Jennifer Garner staged an intervention.
US Weekly have said that the intervention took place on Wednesday at Ben’s home in Pacific Palisades with both Jen and a sober coach in attendance.
The “tipping point” for Jennifer allegedly came a few days prior when Ben was photographed receiving a delivery of alcohol. However, TMZ is reporting that Ben knew that he needed help and wanted to seek treatment.
After the intervention on Wednesday, the pair were spotted leaving Ben’s house together and are said to have headed straight to a rehab facility.
Affleck opened up about his addiction back in 2017 after entering rehab, saying that he needed to get better for the sake of his kids.
“I want to I’ve 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 said.
“I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friend, including my coparent 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.”
