Casey Affleck opted for soccer over celebration.
Over the weekend, much was made over Casey skipping out on his brother's lavish wedding ceremony in Georgia. The Oscar-winning actor only added to the confusion when he told paparazzi he was missing Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's gathering because of "other things."
It turns out that those "other things" involved taking his son Atticus to soccer practice.
Over the weekend, the "Manchester by the Sea" star shared a message on Instagram welcoming Jen to the family. In the comment's section, Casey's girlfriend, Caylee Cowan, seemed to reveal the "Manchester by the Sea" star's reasoning for eschewing the wedding.
"Hey, if you weren't in town Saturday to take Atty to soccer practice then who would've helped the kid who broke his arm?" she wrote in a since deleted comment. "You're a good man. I love you."
Prior to the post, a source told People that Casey would miss the nuptials because of "family, parental obligations at home."
Although the absence could be seen as a snub, Casey's aforementioned adoring post dispelled that notion quickly.
"Good things are worth waiting for," Casey captioned a throwback image of him walking with Ben and Jen. "Here is to twists and turns, new beginnings, and finding new reservoirs of old love."
He continued, "Welcome to the family. Get ready for some real dysfunction! Kidding. I am kidding. Jen, you are a gem. We love you so much!!!"
