Uh oh. Ben Affleck may be denying he ever romanced his kids’ nanny, but Christine Ouzounian claims she was wrongfully fired after Jennifer Garner suspected an affair. And now, Christine has met with lawyers, as she plans on taking action against Jen. Find out all the details!
Christine Ouzounian, 28, who was hired at Ben Affleck, 42, and Jennifer Garner‘s nanny this past spring, was reportedly fired after Jen, 43, discovered she went on a trip to Las Vegas with Ben, but without the kids! And now, Christine has met with attorneys to file a wrongful termination suit against Jen. Christine does have strong feelings for Ben, but she doesn’t feel that’s a good enough reason to get fired.
“Ben asked Christina if she wanted to fly back to Los Angeles with him from the Bahamas. He assured her it was OK. Technically, he was her boss, not Jen. But along the way, he convinced her to go to Las Vegas with him for his poker tournament. They even stopped and picked up Tom Brady for the trip. While in Vegas, Ben hid Christine the entire time,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Ben may have hidden Christine while in Vegas, but Jen eventually found out. And that’s when all hell broke loose.
“When they got back to LA, Jen heard about their trip without the kids and flipped out. She fired Christine right away and Ben did nothing about it. Christine’s upset and has met with attorneys to file a wrongful termination suit against Jen. In truth, Christine would rather be Ben’s girlfriend than nanny. She has strong feelings for him and wishes he wanted a relationship,” our source adds.
If Christine does end up suing Jennifer Garner, we’re sure a lot more details about her alleged relationship with Ben will emerge. And this is why it’s never a good idea to mix business with pleasure.
