Has Ben Affleck already moved on from Jennifer Garner? Less than a month after the couple announced their split, the actor is vehemently denying a new report that he’s dating his kids’ nanny, Christina Ouzounian.
Ben Affleck is still putting on a united front with Jennifer Garner, 43, for the sake of their kids…but does he also already have a new love interest? Not so fast! The 42-year-old is denying rumors that he’s begun a hot romance with Christine Ouzounian, 28, the nanny he and Jen hired for their three children in the spring!
“They would hang out without the kids and they were very flirty,” an insider, who is reportedly friends with Christine, tells Us Weekly. The mag reports that Ben and Jen hired the Arizona State University grad as nanny to Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, Samuel, 3, while they were in the middle of their separation, but before they announced the break up.
According to Us, Jen found out about what was going on between her hubby and Christine, and let the nanny go. That, reportedly, didn’t stop Ben from seeing her, though. “She says Ben really, really likes her,” the friend claims. “She’s saying this is true love.”
But Ben’s rep tells HollywoodLife.com there is no truth to this report: “The story is tabloid lies best suited for the supermarket check out counter. This story is shameful.”
After ten years of marriage, Ben and Jennifer announced they were getting divorced on June 30. “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the pair said in a statement. “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.”
But, since the big news broke, Ben has still been spotted wearing his wedding ring, and the pair have been photographed together, with their children, on more than one occasion. They even took a tropical vacation as a family during the week of June 30, so they would be far away when their statement was made.
