A report from US Weekly claims that Ben Affleck was hooking up with the couple’s 28-year-old nanny, Christine Ouzonian.
The magazine claims that Ben, 42, is involved with Christine. Ben denies the claims and is threatening legal action over the “garbage” reports.
Jennifer Garner has not made any comments about the reports. She is currently in Atlanta filming her movie “Miracles From Heaven”.
The Gone Girl star’s team states that “all allegations of a romantic relationship between their client and the nanny are baseless and untrue”.
The rep told the New York Post’s Page Six, “The story is complete garbage and full of lies. You shouldn’t be able to hide behind “blind sources” and attempt to destroy families going through a difficult time.
“The tabloid [Us Weekly] decided to construct stories in order to sell magazines. It’s like story time in kindergarten. It’s shameful and desperate. We are considering legal options.”
Christine was hired to care for Jennifer and Ben’s children while the couple were in a 10-month trial separation. Insiders reveal it didn’t take long for things to turn from a professional relationship to a person one.
A source revealed, “They would hang out without the kids. And they were very flirty”.
Christine, who was hired from a Beverly Hills agency, has reportedly told friends her relationship with Ben is “true love”.
US Weekly claims that Christine was fired by Jennifer after she discovered her husband and the nanny were getting too close for comfort.
But Christine and Ben reportedly stayed in contact. She is even rumored to have spent time with Ben in Los Angeles on July 17.
The allegations come following multiple reports that Ben’s alleged infidelity led to his split from Jennifer, while other sources claim his drinking was the main issue.
Garner and Affleck announced their split one day after their 10th wedding anniversary.
In a statement, the couple said, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce.
“We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
