The cheating allegations against actor Ben Affleck just got more serious. Not only is the Academy Award winner accused of sleeping with his former nanny, Christine Ouzounian, rumors are swirling that she’s pregnant with his fourth child, Star magazine claims in its new cover story, which hit shelves on Wednesday.
The front of the magazine reads, “Ben and the Nanny: Pregnancy Shocker!” Affleck and Ouzounain apparently hooked up earlier in 2015 and now he’s afraid she’s expecting. “We hear Ben is petrified she might be pregnant. He’s sweating beyond belief right now, wishing he’d never gotten involved with her in the first place,” the insider told the magazine. The cover claims it can explain “how Christine seduced him” and that “Ben’s hiding nanny in a hotel.”
Ouzounian, 28, supposedly fell in love with the Hollywood star, 42, when she went with the family to the Bahamas. “By then, Christine was planning to get pregnant by Ben -- and was trying to seduce him!” a source told Star magazine, according to Radar Online. “She wanted to be in the ‘family way’ real bad!” The insider added: “It’s clear that Christine is an opportunist -- [but] whether she got knocked up remains unclear.”
On that note, neither Affleck nor his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, have addressed the rumor, but Gossip Cop wrote in an exclusive report Wednesday that the story was false. The director’s rep said he and Ouzounian never had a sexual or romantic relationship, and he’s reportedly thinking about suing over the allegations.
Affleck and Garner announced their split on June 30, which was a day shy of their 10-year wedding anniversary. The couple shares three children: Violet, 9; Seraphina, 6; and Samuel, 3. The Hollywood stars plan to share joint custody of their kids, TMZ wrote at the time the breakup was announced.
