Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus appear to be on the rocks a year into their controversial romance — and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner secretly is loving the drama, a source exclusively told

As Radar exclusively reported, Shookus, 37, was "furious" at her famous boyfriend for slamming photographers on social media, and getting attention for his comments. Then, the Saturday Night Live producer gave a tell-all interview to Elle magazine, and slammed all the talk about her high-profile romance.

"Jen is loving the fact that Lindsay is freaking out about Ben, and then went on record with a magazine about all the attention surrounding them," the source told Radar. "She is all about taking high road as co-parents, but it's karma for how Ben and Lindsay started their relationship."

As Radar previously reported, the Batman actor, 45, met Shookus while hosting SNL, even though he was still married at the time to the mother of his three young children.

They went public with the relationship last summer, despite Affleck's multiple rehab stints that year.

"For a while it looked like things were going so smoothly in their romance, but now Jen thinks the cracks are starting to show," said the source, adding that Garner thinks Shookus is "full of herself."

Affleck and Garner split in 2015 , and the fed-up mom finally filed for divorce two years later.
