Ben Affleck's sorta girlfriend is denying an accusation that she played any role in the star's recent downfall that landed him back in rehab.
Shauna Sexton posted a photo recently showing her drinking a glass of wine. A commenter responded to the photo, writing, "lol she already got him thrown into rehab," referring to Affleck.
That comment sent Sexton off.
"It’s so bizarre to me that you follow me and have the energy to come to the comments section strictly to comment something negative? It’s even more bizarre to me that you can somehow correlate someone’s poor person decisions to anyone other than that person. Never drank around or with him for the record. Don’t pollute your brain with tabloid and media bullshit," she wrote.
The original commenter was unrelenting, firing back, "You’ve been arrested twice for underage drinking and public intoxication just last year, so please tell me again you don’t like to drink or party lmao."
Shauna Sexton fessed up to those accusations in a lengthy rebuttal, saying:
I love to drink and party! Absolutely dude. Most 22 year olds do. 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. Do these mistakes define me? No, stupid minuscule shit I learned from. Do these mistakes mean that I am human? Yes. Do these mistakes mean i would disrespect someone’s hard earned sobriety by drinking with them or in front of them? Hell no. I have limitless respect people who have the humility and maturity to admit when they need to fix something in their life. I have even more respect for those who take action and actually do something about it. With that being said, Ben is a grown ass man, baby. He makes his own decisions. Blaming a 22 year old for someone’s 3rd time in rehab is just ridiculous. He is human. I am human. You are human. We all are going to fuck up it’s just a matter of learning from it. Don’t be so quick to throw shade on people. Take a step back, accept that we are all on our own journey, and be a little less critical. Take care xx
As The Blast previously reported, Ben Affleck checked into rehab on August 22. According to our sources, Affleck never would have made the much-needed move if not for the help of his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.
Affleck and Shauna Sexton had been seen together several times in the days leading up to Affleck going to rehab.
