A single day following appearing just about falling-down-drunk when leaving a Hollywood Halloween celebration (following getting sober for 1 year), Ben Affleck admitted that he suffered a relapse.
“It occurs. It was a slip. But I’m not going to let it derail me,” Affleck, 47, stated to TMZ as he arrived at the household of his ex-wife Jenner Garner Sunday.
But images published of Affleck leaving the celebration Saturday evening and playing poker at a casino a quick time later revealed that he had a quite wild evening on the town — in the course of which he was accompanied by a young, appealing blonde lady, according to TMZ.
On Saturday Affleck was recorded on video by TMZ leaving a hotel exactly where he attended the UNICEF Masquerade Ball in West Hollywood.
Wearing a dark suit and Halloween skull mask more than his face, Affleck appeared to have problems walking. In truth, he almost fell at 1 point and utilized the side of an SUV to steady himself prior to continuing to stroll to an additional waiting automobile.
Shortly thereafter, Affleck turned up at Commerce Casino, a card space positioned in the suburb of Commerce, according to images published by TMZ Monday.
Affleck arrived at about 1 a.m., accompanied by a blonde lady, and rolled up to a table that currently was complete with nine players.
But the pit boss decided to make an exception and had a 10th chair moved to the table so Ben could play. Eyewitnesses told TMZ that Affleck was so inebriated he just about fell off his chair. He got $20,000 in chips.
Regardless of getting “wasted,” he took only 12 minutes to win $1,500, an eyewitness told TMZ.
“He stumbled out of the casino with his lady pal and that was it,” TMZ added.
