After a Halloween party in West Hollywood on Saturday, Ben Affleck was seen stumbling to an SUV, seemingly intoxicated.
Affleck was wearing a skeleton mask and was posing for photos outside of the La Peer Hotel in West Hollywood after the Unicef Masquerade.
Affleck has been struggling with his sobriety for a long time, and has been in and out of rehab in recent years.
Fans expressed their concern and offered their encouragement for the actor on social media.
A source told JustJared that Affleck wasn’t going to let this setback derail his recovery.
“Sobriety is difficult and elusive for everyone struggling with addiction…Ben has acknowledged he’s going to slip up from time to time. It was never as if this was simply behind him.”
TMZ asked Affleck if he was dating the woman that he was seen leaving the party with, and while he didn’t comment, Affleck admitted on Twitter that he was dating again following his divorce from Jennifer Garner and his break up with Lindsay Shookus. He tweeted about a partnership that he was doing with the elite dating app Raya in support of The Midnight Mission.
Sobriety is a difficult battle, so here’s hoping that Affleck gets the support that he needs.
