Los Angeles : Actress Jennifer Garner doesn't want her estranged husband Ben Affleck's girlfriend Lindsay Shookus in their children's lives.

"Jen doesn't want the kids around Lindsay or having her in their lives. She has many reasons," Ausmagazine.com quoted a source as saying.

Garner, 46, and Affleck, 45, who called it quits in 2015 after 10 years of marriage, share three children: Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6.

Though the "Batman" star officially got together with Shookus, 38, after Garner and Affleck's filing, a source said their relationship started as early as 2014.

As a result, one of the reasons the actress does not want Shookus around her children is "the fact that Ben had an affair with her", the source added.

"Ben understands and has honored her request. They're good friends. She wants him to be honest and he usually is. She tends to find out about things, and Ben is very open with her. They both want what's best for the kids and have made a commitment to see that through."
