Ben Affleck is in rehab for the third time but Shauna Sexton denies having anything to do with his latest need for treatment.
The Playboy model, who had been spending time with the actor amid news that he and Lindsay Shookus, 38, had called it quits after one year of dating, hit back at a fan on Instagram who accused her of getting Affleck “thrown in rehab.”
“Never drank around or with him for the record,” Sexton said in a series of responses in the comments section of a photo of her drinking red wine.
“I love to drink and party! Absolutely dude. Most 22 year olds do,” she also wrote after the same fan said she was “arrested twice for underage drinking and public intoxication just last year.”
Sexton did not deny her past with alcohol, saying she had made “a dumb mistake and an embarrassing one at that.” However, the model double downed on her denial that she sent Affleck to rehab.
“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 for those who take action and actually do something about it,” Sexton wrote.
“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,” she said.
