Rumors swirl as Ben Affleck's reportedly dating someone close to his kids
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner shocked fans when they announced their decision to divorce after 10 years of marriage, and now only a month later, there are already reports that Affleck has a new woman in his life.
The Gone Girl actor has been plagued with fresh rumors of infidelity as a report claims he is dating a 28-year-old woman — who happens to be very close to his family.
The woman in question is Christine Ouzounian, the nanny the former couple hired to take care of their three children in the spring of this year. According to Us Weekly, a source close to Ouzounian revealed, "They would hang out without the kids. And they were very flirty."
Ouzounian reportedly developed an "attraction" to Affleck when she started working for the family. But upon discovering there was "something going on" between Affleck and the nanny, Garner reportedly fired her, Us Weekly reports.
Just because she was no longer the family nanny, however, doesn't mean she no longer had feelings for Affleck. Earlier this month, the pair reportedly spent time together at the actor's new, rented home in the Los Angeles area, and Ouzounian's friend revealed they have been in constant contact.
"She says Ben really, really likes her," the friend told the publication. "She's saying this is true love."
But before you start thinking Affleck's eyes were wandering while he was married, his rep has denied there is any truth to these rumors, telling Us Weekly that "all allegations of a romantic relationship are baseless and untrue.”
A divorce is never easy, but the fact that Affleck and Garner's split is playing out in the public eye is no doubt making it even harder — especially when the infidelity rumors keep swirling.
