The 22-year-old Playboy model was seeing the 'Justice League' star before he was admitted to a Malibu rehab earlier this month she angrily hit back after fans claimed his relapse was her fault.

After Shauna posted a picture of herself with a glass of red wine on Instagram, fans accused her of getting Ben, 46, "thrown into rehab".

Shauna hit back, saying: "It's bizarre to me that you can somehow correlate someone's poor person decisions to anyone other than that person. Never drank around or with him for the record."

When others questioned her about being arrested in the past for underage drinking and public intoxication, Shauna posted a lengthy message defending her right to drink alcohol and insisted that father-of-three Ben is responsible for his own decisions.

She wrote: "I love to drink and party! Absolutely dude. Most 22 year olds do. Yes you're correct. I got put in the drunk tank when I was 17 for having a fake ID and drinking underage at a bar in Virginia Beach, and despite the fact most people have used a fake ID as well as drank underage, it was a dumb mistake on my behalf and an embarrassing one at that. Then the weekend of my 21st birthday I got obliterated and wound up getting left at a bar at the ocean front in Virginia Beach.. where I was again taken to the drunk tank for being intoxicated publicly ..while attempting to find a ride home. Do these mistakes define me? No, stupid minuscule sh*t I learned from. Do these mistakes mean that I am human? Yes. Do these mistakes mean i would disrespect someone's hard earned sobriety by drinking with them or in front of them? Hell no.

"I have limitless respect people who have the humility and maturity to admit when they need to fix something in their life. I have even more respect for those who take action and actually do something about it. With that being said, Ben is a grown ass man, baby. He makes his own decisions. Blaming a 22 year old for someone's 3rd time in rehab is just ridiculous. He is human. I am human. You are human. We all are going to f**k up it's just a matter of learning from it. Don't be so quick to throw shade on people. Take a step back, accept that we are all on our own journey, and be a little less critical. Take care xx (sic)."
