Dax Shepard, allegedly, betrayed Kristen Bell after he refused to immediately admit to his wife that he’d relapsed.
Weeks ago, Shepard candidly talked about his struggles with addiction. He said that he abused opioids for months after being injured in an ATV and motorcycle accident. And it was only last month that he told Kristen Bell about what’s been going on.
Kristen Bell shocked that her husband relapsed after 16 years of being sober
A source told Life & Style that Bell was shocked by her husband’s admission. After all, the actress is, reportedly, all about honesty and openness. And the fact that Shepard managed to keep his addiction a secret from her is, allegedly, the ultimate betrayal.
“While she’s supportive, Kristen is also wary. Dax straight out lied to her about his relapse. They still love each other, 100 percent, but the trust they had has been destroyed. Dax needs to gain it back,” the source said.

In Touch Weekly published a similar story about the couple following Shepard’s shocking admission.
“Not telling her right away was the ultimate betrayal. Kristen is super supportive, but the relapse rocked their marriage. They have an amazing partnership, but it will take time for Dax to regain her trust,” the source said.
It is possible that Shepard’s recent admission has affected his marriage to Kristen Bell. However, no one knows for sure what’s been happening with the couple behind closed doors.
As such, it is important to note that the claims made by the tabloids are just based on hearsays.

On his Instagram account, the actor shared a cryptic post with the number seven over his face. He revealed that the photo was taken on Monday, which was his seventh day being sober. But he was already on his 11th day of being sober when he uploaded the photo.
Bell also showed the world how much she still loves and supports Shepard even after he relapsed. On her Instagram account, the actress shared an adorable photo of her husband lounging on their bed with their dog beside him.
“My two favorite guys,” Bell captioned the photo.
