Sexton showed up at Affleck's Malibu treatment center and spent four hours inside with the star.
She dressed casually for her date with Affleck, who she began dating after he split with his Saturday Night Live producer girlfriend of one year, Lindsay Shookus.
"He is trying to do the speed-round rehab program and is telling everyone what they want to hear, but his team of counselors is getting very frustrated because he's not listening," an insider exclusively told Radar of Affleck's ongoing struggles with addiction.
"Everyone will be amazed if he remains in the program for another week, let alone two," said the insider.
Affleck was advised not to see Sexton this weekend, a suggestion he disregarded."No one in his life thinks that he should be getting involved with Shauna," said the insider. "Everyone thinks that she is using him."
As Radar reported, Sexton was arrested twice for drinking related charges. In 2014, she was found guilty of using a fake ID and failing to provide her name and address to police. In 2017, she was found guilty of public intoxication.
However, in a social media post she has since deleted, Sexton, 22, recently said staying sober with Affleck meant the two were "going to get shredded."
Since checking in with the help of his ex, Jennifer Garner, Affleck has been allowed to leave treatment to go home on several occasions.
He was spotted headed back to rehab from his house on Sept. 7 after a basketball workout with his sober coach.
Do you think Ben should stay away from Shauna for now, or can he handle dating while going through rehab? Weigh in with your thoughts in the comments below.
