How awkward. A new report reveals how Jennifer Garner feels about the rumors Ben Affleck may have had an affair with their nanny, as well as exactly when she first heard them.
Jennifer Garner, 43, has every right to be upset about the latest batch of rumors circulating about her estranged husband, Ben Affleck, 42, and their former nanny, Christine Ouzounian, 28. Now, a new report claims that the mother of three was absolutely “livid” when she first heard the allegations, despite the fact that Ben has since vehemently denied that he had any romantic involvement with his nanny.
As if going through a divorce after a decade of marriage wasn’t bad enough, now Jennifer and Ben are warding off some pretty terrible accusations. The latest claim is that Ben and their nanny, Christine, allegedly had an intimate and romantic affair. Ben’s rep was quick to slam the rumor, calling it “garbage” and “full of lies,” but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have an effect on his soon-to-be ex-wife, Jen.
It’s no surprise to hear that Jen was “livid” when she first heard the rumor about Ben and Christine, which is what a source told PEOPLE. “I don’t blame her because if my children bonded with you and you did this? It’s just the biggest betrayal,” the source continued.
Apparently, Jen first heard the rumors when she was down in the Bahamas with Ben, the children, and Christine in June 2015. It all went down when Ben and Christine left the Bahamas after Jen arrived, and allegedly traveled to Las Vegas together to attend a charity poker event, claims PEOPLE‘s report. Whether or not the affair is legit, it definitely must have been a real shock for Jen to hear the accusations about her husband and the woman she trusted with their children.
