PLAYBOY MODEL SHAUNA SEXTON DEFLECTS BLAME FOR BEN AFFLECK’S RELAPSE: Shauna Sexton is clapping back at critics who say she contributed to Ben Affleck’s relapse. Affleck, 46, and Saturday Night Live director Lindsay Shookus, 38, broke up after a year of dating, and soon after he was seen out on several dates with Sexton, 22.

Affleck’s estranged wife Jennifer Garner reportedly staged an intervention and brought him back to rehab. When critics on social media starting trolling Sexton for posting a shot of herself drinking wine, she said she "never drank around or with him for the record." When the commenter replied that she’d been arrested twice for underage drinking, she wrote: "Yes you’re correct. I got put in the drunk tank when I was 17 for having a fake ID and drinking underage at a bar in Virginia Beach, and despite the fact most people have used a fake ID as well as drank underage, it was a dumb mistake on my behalf and an embarrassing one at that. Then the weekend of my 21st birthday I got obliterated and wound up getting left at a bar at the ocean front in Virginia Beach.. where I was again taken to the drunk tank for being intoxicated publicly ..while attempting to find a ride home."
