Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus may be happy and in love, but they may want to watch their backs. According to In Touch Weekly, comedian Chelsea Handler is so angry at Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus for breaking her new best friend, Jennifer Garner’s heart, that she plans to roast Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus during her upcoming comedy routines.
Chelsea Handler and Jennifer Garner have recently bonded and Jennifer has confided in Chelsea how devastated she has been following her split with Ben Affleck and the fact that he has now gone public with his on again, off again mistress, Lindsay Shookus. It was recently revealed that Ben and Lindsay have been having an affair for years, and at one point Jennifer Garner flew to New York to beg Lindsay to stop seeing Ben, but Lindsay refused.
Now Ben and Lindsay are living together in Los Angeles and for the past few weeks have been photographed having romantic date nights while Jennifer Garner stays home taking care of the couple’s three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel.
Although Jennifer hasn’t met anyone new to date, she apparently has made a new friend in comedian Chelsea Handler. The pair were spotted having dinner together a couple of weeks ago, and while their friendship may seem like an odd pairing, considering Chelsea is loud and raunchy, and Jennifer is quiet and classy, the two seemed to have instantly bonded. And now that they are best friends, Chelsea wants to let the world know how much she despises Ben Affleck and new girlfriend Lindsay Shookus by insulting them and making them pay for hurting Jennifer.
This won’t be the first time Chelsea Handler has gone off on a friend’s ex. For years, Chelsea roasted Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Chelsea was friends with Jennifer Aniston and resented Brad Pitt for his affair with Angelina Jolie and the fact that he ended his marriage with Jennifer Aniston to be with Angelina. Chelsea would describe Brad Pitt as dumb and Angelina Jolie as psychotic and a home-wrecker in her stand up routines and during interviews.
Luckily for Ben Affleck, he may be spared from Chelsea’s wrath. Considering he and Jennifer Garner have kids, Jennifer doesn’t want Chelsea to say anything too insulting or hurtful because it may negatively affect their children. However, Jennifer and Chelsea may not be so sympathetic when it comes to insulting Lindsay Shookus.
