It's been already a month since the media first concluded that Jon Hamm and Lindsay Shookus are dating. After seeing the two personalities on the broadway show, Derren Brown: Secret, together, a lot of speculations have been made. 

Sources from various publications like People and Us Weekly contended that the pair looked decent and happy as if they were on a date. Others, however, claimed that the two just sat next to each other, did nothing at all, but watched the show. Even so, no word has been heard from the celebrities concerning the relationship status. 

While the celebrities were reportedly having a "great time" during the show, another angle of the story made the headlines. As per Naughty Gossip, Lindsay Shookus' former flame, Ben Affleck, was "hurt" upon learning about the alleged relationship.

The tabloid further asserted that Ben had "mixed feelings" about it. But, he is happy that Lindsay finally found a "good man." So, he now gives his blessings.

These stories may sound all true. Not to mention, fans are glad to know that everything worked out among the three celebrities. However, Gossip Cop revealed that all of these things are nothing but fabricated stories.

According to the publication, Ben Affleck did not give his blessings or any of the like to Jon Hamm and Lindsay Shookus. Not because he does not want them to be together, but it is because Jon Hamm and Lindsay Shookus are not dating at all.

It was pointed out that Lindsay Shookus and Jon Hamm have not been seen since the night of the Broadway show. So, there's no hard evidence that can prove the said relationship.

Gossip Cop also went on to speak with a source close to Ben Affleck to confirm the reports. As revealed, the source "laughed off" and verified that all of these things are plain rumors. 

As for the tabloids and magazines that published the stories about Ben Affleck, Lindsay Shookus, and Jon Hamm, it was reiterated how Gossip Cop repeatedly "busted" them for their false claims and fabricated stories.

In the end, several things have been concluded. Primarily, Ben Affleck did not give his blessings because, secondly, Lindsay Shookus and Jon Hamm are not dating.

Thirdly, the tabloids and magazines that published the rumors and allegations have been found to "capitalize" on the lives of several celebrities. Lastly, they "capitalize" despite not knowing about the truths behind.
