Gossip: The Rock Is Running For President; Ben Affleck Was Having An Affair For Three Years

The Hill reports:

A campaign committee has formally filed to draft actor and former WWE wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for president.

“Run the Rock 2020,” the name of the official organization, was filed on behalf of Johnson with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Sunday, according to FEC records.

Johnson has long joked about a White House bid, playing a buff Obama on “Saturday Night Live” and standing in front of podium labeled “The Rock Johnson 2020” on the show in May. But he revealed earlier this year that his run is “a real possibility.”

Ben Affleck And Lindsay Shookus Were Having An Affair For Three Years

US Magazine says that Ben has been seeing Lindsay for three years, she was married too.

“Ben and Lindsay started their affair about three years ago, just a few months after she became a mom,” an insider close to the former A-list couple claimed to Us. “They were not casually dating — they were having a full-blown affair. They were sleeping together, sending each other cute texts and meeting up whenever they could.

Garner and Shookus’ ex-husband, Kevin Miller, both discovered the relationship in 2015, the source claims: “They were devastated when they found out about the affair.”

US Magazine: Affleck source claims he’s only been seeing Lindsay three months.

“Ben and Lindsay have been out together in London, in Los Angeles and he has plans to go visit her in New York as well,” the insider tells Us. ”He isn’t relieved that this information is out there, but he is very happy with Lindsay and doesn’t want to hide it.”

“Lindsay was not what led to the end of their marriage. They had a ton of other problems.”

“Jen knew about the new relationship and still chose to go on vacation with Ben for the 4th of July,” the source shared, referring to the former couple’s recent trip to the Caribbean.

US Magazine: Lindsay left her husband to be with Affleck.

The “Saturday Night Live” producer tied the knot with her NBC colleague Miller in 2010. However, an insider alleges that her relationship with Affleck, 44, spurred her to end the marriage. “She was married and had a baby and left her husband to be with Ben,” the source claims.

The insider alleges that Shookus would frequently travel to L.A. to scout talent for SNL so she could spend time with the Oscar winner. Meanwhile, Affleck was still married to Garner.
