Ben Affleck is NOT dating a “mystery blonde,” despite a newspaper’s inaccurate speculation. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this report. We’re told it’s not true.

A new headline in the Daily Mail blares, “Ben Affleck enjoys lunch date with blonde mystery woman as she holds onto his arm in Beverly Hills.” The accompanying article features a series of photos of the actor strolling through the Los Angeles neighborhood with an unidentified woman. “Perhaps one of Hollywood’s hottest leading men is back on the market,” the outlet writes before noting he’s “currently estranged from his wife of 10 years Jennifer Garner.”

The publication goes on to note that Affleck and the woman went to “a sushi lunch and a bookstore,” then adds that she “at one point clung onto his arm.” But despite the newspaper strongly suggesting that the actor and the woman were on a date, Gossip Cop checked in with a reliable source close to Affleck, who exclusively assures us that wasn’t the case. We’re told the actor’s female companion is “a friend,” and there’s nothing romantic going on between the two. There’s talk that she even does detox work.

Of course, Gossip Cop has busted an inordinate amount of false stories about Affleck and Garner since the couple split in June 2015, and this latest theoretical report is equally wrong.
