Ben Affleck continued his birthday celebrations on Thursday night – by enjoying a dinner date with a Playboy model.
However, the pairs evening out has fuelled speculation Ben has split from his girlfriend Lindsay Shookus.
The Batman actor, who turned 46 on Wednesday (15 August), was pictured leaving Nobu Malibu with Shauna Sexton, best known as Playboys Miss May 2018.
Ben dressed casually for the occasion wearing a pair of jeans, a green jumper which had a stain and a dark blue jacket. At one point, the Oscar-winning actor was seen holding a cigarette in his hand.
His companion, however, made more of an effort with Shauna dressed up in a nude-coloured bodycon dress and a pair of sandal heels.
Shauna, 22, hails from Virginia but lives in Los Angeles and describes herself on Instagram as a Vet Tech.
Ben spent his actual birthday with the three children he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner: Violet, 12, Seraphina, nine and six-year-old son Samuel.
Its come as a surprise that the Argo director has not been pictured celebrating his birthday with Lindsay, 38, whom he has been dating since 2017.
The couple were last seen together in July sparking rumours that they have split. Adding to the speculation, a judge reportedly warned Ben and Jennifer, 46, to finalise their divorce proceedings which began in April 2017, or it could all be called off.
