Meet Summer Phoenix, Casey Affleck’s wife. Summer was born on December 10, 1978 in Summer Park, Florida. In case you were wondering, yes with a last name like Phoenix she is related to the entertainment Phoenix family. She has four siblings including Joaquin, Rain, Liberty and the late River.

After Summer attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts she went on to pursue a career in the entertainment industry as an actress.

Summer was a child actor, who made some pretty cool guest appearances including Murder She Wrote, Growing Pains and Airwolf. In addition to the guest gigs, Summer was also in the following movies: Wasted, The Laramie Project, SLC Punk!, Dinner Rush, The Believer, The Faculty, Esther Kahn and Suzie Gold.

Not only did Summer dabble in acting, but she was also in the rock band The Causey Way, alongside her sister Rain Phoenix.

On December 25th, 2003, Phoenix got engaged to Casey Affleck. They married on June 3rd, 2006. They have two boys together Indiana August and Atticus.

While Summer’s husband Casey faces sexual harassment allegations brought on by producer Amanda White, Summer is standing by her man. White is claiming that Affleck made “uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances” towards her.

In an 19-page lawsuit, Amanda is demanding $2 million in damages. She is claiming in one of the instances that “On one occasion, Affleck instructed a crew member to take off his pants in order to show (White) his penis, even after (White) objected. Affleck repeatedly referred to women as ‘cows;’ he discussed his sexual exploits and those of other celebrities that he allegedly witnessed; and asked (White), after learning her age, ‘Isn’t it about time you get pregnant?'”

However Affleck is denying such claims with his lawyer saying, “The allegations brought upon our clients are preposterous and without merit. Ms. White was terminated from the production over a year ago. She and her lawyers believe that this maliciously and erroneously filed complaint will cause the producers to succumb to her outrageous and baseless demands. She is mistaken. The complaint will be vigorously defended and cross-claims will be filed against her.”

While these allegations could be true, Affleck’s camp is saying Amanda White is a disgruntled employee. I’m sure Casey Affleck’s Summer Phoenix is giving Casey the interrogation treatment.
