Jennifer Garner is reportedly disgusted with estranged husband Ben Affleck after finding out he had been having an affair with their former nanny Christine Ouzounian.
Sources close to the former couple said they had arranged a family vacation in late June to discuss their marriage, knowing it was on the rocks.
“It was game time,” a source close to the couple told People Magazine. “Ben had already told her he hadn’t been committed to the marriage. They were trying to figure out what to do.”
While there, sources say Jennifer found out about Ben’s ongoing affair with Christine, which he strongly denies. Apparently, that was the last straw, and the couple announced their separation on June 30.
“There was always a speck of doubt in Jen’s mind about separating, but that’s now gone,” the source added. “She is very angry. To Jen, this is the ultimate betrayal.”
While Ouzounian was “very caring and loving toward the kids,” she started dressing a “bit more inappropriately” around Ben while Jennifer was in Canada filming Nine Lives.
“It’s tabloid journalism hiding behind blind sources. It’s a shameful ploy to stay relevant for the magazine,” Affleck’s rep told Us Weekly when the rumors first surfaced that he was dating his children’s former nanny. “All allegations of a romantic relationship are baseless and untrue. We are considering legal options.”
Now, it is being reported that Ben and Christine have been having an affair for months, and their relationship is allegedly as strong as ever. Ouzounian described Affleck as “perfect” and said she gets along great with his three kids with Garner — Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and son Samuel, 3.
“She thinks they’re meant to be together. She says that it’s perfect because the kids love her,” a friend of Christine’s said. “I think she really wants it to happen, but at the same time, she’s not crazy — I really do think there is something to the relationship,” the friend added. “She’s not the kind of girl who sleeps with someone once and is like, ‘We’re in love.’ She’s not like Isla Fisher in Wedding Crashers — she’s no stage-five clinger.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, sources are also claiming that Ouzounian is pregnant with Affleck’s baby. However, a source close to Ben said that is “not true.”
Despite Ben being persistent that his relationship with Christine was strictly professional, images recently surfaced of Ouzounian visiting him at his Los Angeles home on July 17, just three weeks after he and Jen announced their divorce plans.
While Jennifer Garner is reportedly disgusted with her husband of 10 years, she has yet to publicly comment on the affair.
