Ben Affleck’s former nanny, Christine Ouzounian, has been making the headlines, and has been in front of the paparazzi lens after news dropped of an alleged inappropriate relationship between her and the Pearl Harbor star.
The most salacious news to come from nannygate are photos of she and Affleck out at night in Los Angeles, which were supposedly obtained after Ouzounian called the paparazzi on them. Following the leak of these photos, and other photos of Ouzounian out and about, stories started to break that she was living a swanky lifestyle that Affleck is financially responsible for.
The former nanny even showed off a flashy smile as she posed next to her brand new Lexus on Instagram. While her friends insist that Ben Affleck is paying out the nose for her stay at the extravagant Hotel Bel-Air, and it looks like he might be paying for her Lexus, according to TMZ, Affleck is not paying Christine’s bills.
Sources close to the situation told TMZ that not only is Ben not involved in paying for Christine’s new lavish lifestyle, but he’s also completely cut off any contact from her. Perhaps she’s getting money from tabloid stories?
The other huge story since the rumors started is a picture floating around the internet of Christine aboard a private jet to Las Vegas. According to sources, Affleck took her to Vegas and stopped on the way to get Tom Brady. A photo surfaced of the ex-nanny posing with Brady’s four Super Bowl rings, which only intensified rumors that there was something going on between Ben Affleck and the nanny.
That said, sources tell TMZ that while Christine was in Vegas with Affleck and Brady, her involvement was strictly business, and Affleck hired multiple people to board the jet for the charity event in Vegas. As it turns out, the stay in Sin City was not at all scandalous, and rather to support his charity the Eastern Congo Initiative. So, on one side of the tale, you might have a cheating Affleck, and on the other side, you have an ex-nanny that might be taking advantage of the limelight.
Since these allegations surfaced, Affleck’s estranged ex, Jennifer Garner, hasn’t commented on the rumors. Since the two announced they were getting divorced, they have been photographed together out and about with their three children, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
