Ben Affleck just isn’t getting mind surgical procedure in China to remedy his habit to alcohol, regardless of a brand new report. Gossip Cop can completely right this absurd declare. We’re instructed it’s unfaithful.
In line with the Nationwide Enquirer, “Affleck is contemplating probably lethal mind surgical procedure in China as a last-ditch effort to battle his boozy demons.” A so-called “supply” is quoted as saying, “Conventional rehab has failed him, and his world is crumbling.” After relating how the actor has once more returned to rehab, the grocery store tabloid maintains, “Ben is telling friends he’s misplaced religion in typical remedy and believes the dangerous process is his solely hope.”
The supposed insider additional asserts, “Ben is planning a secret journey to China to discover controversial ‘pleasure heart’ surgical procedure.” The outlet then describes how the proposed operation destroys “components of the mind concerned within the harmful needs of addicts as a strategy to completely finish their cravings.” Naturally, the tabloid has a health care provider, who’s by no means handled Affleck, weigh in on the process.
The doctor, who apparently makes a speciality of well being, health and vitamin, affords how “working on that space of the mind could cause catastrophic harm,” together with reminiscence loss. “Any mind surgical procedure could be deadly if it’s not carry out accurately,” says the physician, including how Affleck would probably be “taking his life into his personal fingers” since he contends there’s “no actual oversight in China.”
There’s one teeny weensy drawback with the tabloid’s story. Affleck just isn’t contemplating the Chinese language mind surgical procedure, as alleged within the journal’s article. He’s nonetheless very dedicated to his rehab program in California. A rep for Affleck tells Gossip Cop on the report that the publication’s declare is unfaithful. In the meantime, a mutual pal of ours and the actor equally laughed off the outlet’s premise.
Far be it from Gossip Cop to query the Enquirer’s reporting concerning the actor; nevertheless, it’s the similar journal we busted just some days in the past when it printed an equally ridiculous story about how Affleck was going to marry Playboy mannequin Shauna Sexton in rehab. It’s additionally the identical outlet we corrected when it falsely claimed Affleck underwent an exorcism by Jennifer Garner earlier than rehab. Curiously, the usually debunked tabloid didn’t point out something concerning the marriage ceremony in rehab (or his exorcism) in its newest article.
It also needs to be famous the controversial mind surgical procedure for habit was truly banned in China in 2004 by its Ministry of Well being. And although it was allowed to nonetheless be carried out for analysis functions on the mentally in poor health, many within the scientific neighborhood have questioned whether or not the dangers outweigh the comparatively small advantages. In any case, one needn’t be a mind surgeon to suspect the journal’s article about Affleck eager to have the process in China is phony.
