Ben Affleck is done with his “very brief” tryst with Shauna Sexton — despite reports the Playboy model is claiming she and the “Batman” star are still very much together.
An Affleck pal told us, “Ben and Shauna are definitely not together. It was casual to begin with, and wasn’t the right move.”
Sources added that his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, was not thrilled about his new relationship.
When Sexton was asked about a People magazine report this week that the duo split, she told the Daily Mail: “Don’t believe everything you read on the internet.”
She also told Radar that she and Affleck are not broken up.
But sources told Page Six they were never fully a couple — and either way, he’s called it quits.
“It was newish. They were really only sort of seeing each other for about four weeks. He broke it off. It was more about realizing [a casual relationship] wasn’t the right thing for him,” our source said.
Affleck and Sexton were first spotted hanging out in August after he split up with “SNL” producer girlfriend Lindsay Shookus.
He checked into a rehab center for alcohol abuse soon after, and Sexton — a self-proclaimed whiskey lover — shot back at internet trolls who blamed her for his boozing.
“Ben is a grown ass man, baby,” she wrote at the time. “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.”
Affleck then completed the 40-day stint in rehab and went on a trip with Sexton last week to Montana.
We hear his ex Garner, who finalized their divorce earlier this month and is reportedly dating again, was not happy about it.
“She wasn’t thrilled. They have a modern family. They talk a lot . . . More than everyone hopes they do. They have an influence on what’s happening in each other’s lives and want what’s best for their kids. They’re always each other’s priority,” the source said.
Reps did not comment.
