Christine Ouzounian is not helping Ben Affleck squash rumors that the two are having an affair as the former nanny shows off her flashy new Lexus on Instagram.
Although Ben Affleck has repeatedly denied he had or is having an intimate relationship with his former nanny, Christine Ouzounian is not helping his case. On Monday, the unemployed 28-year-old posted a photo on Instagram which shows her standing alongside a brand new Lexus with the caption “Keep calm and meet my new drop top Lexi.” The car, which appears to be a Lexus IS convertible, starts at about $43,000, reports ET Online.
Up until the weekend, Christine Ouzounian had been staying mum since rumors started to swirl that an affair with Ben Affleck is what broke up the actor’s already strained 10-year marriage. However, she broke her silence on Sunday by posting a photo of herself taken by the paparazzi and the caption “She’s just a girl and she’s on fire – Alicia Keys,” according to Entertainment Tonight.
On Tuesday, Page Six published an exclusive photo of Ouzounian as she allegedly was aboard a private jet with Affleck and football star Tom Brady flying to a Las Vegas poker tournament in late June. The photo was allegedly taken just three days before Ben and Jennifer Garner announced their split on June 30. Page Six has not revealed the source of the photo.
ET Online also confirms that Christine Ouzounian is still staying at the luxurious Hotel Bel-Air. According to a recent report by People, the former nanny’s room costs approximately $1,500 per night. With food and other amenities, such as Ouzounian’s spa treatments, a one-week stay could total around $12,000.
Ben Affleck’s reps have repeatedly denied he has a relationship with Christine Ouzounian and say the rumors are “garbage,” but many speculate the actor is footing the bill for the unemployed nanny’s new lavish lifestyle. The photo with the Lexus has just further fueled the rumor that Affleck is picking up the tab for a woman who he maintains was nothing more than an employee.
Although she has not publicly addressed the affair rumors head on, sources close to the former nanny say Christine Ouzounian is looking to tell all and intends to do just that, reports Life & Style Weekly, because she does not want to look like a liar.
“She says she has proof she had a relationship with Ben, but exactly what that proof is, is unclear.”
