Ben Affleck’s former nanny, Christine Ouzounian, might not be living on Affleck’s tab. Despite reports that Ben was paying for her cars, hotels and more after their rumored affair, new reports say that the actor isn’t paying for anything at all. In fact, they aren't even speaking to each other.
Rumors about Ouzounian being funded by Affleck started when she posted a picture on Instagram that stated she got a new Lexus, Entertainment Tonight reports. However, new sources say that the “Gone Girl” actor did not buy the $43,000 car for her.
“The sources do not take issue with reports that Ben had some sort of friendship with Christine, but they insist he currently has absolutely no contact with her,” TMZ reports. Their sources say that she has not been put up in an expensive hotel or bought a new car on Ben’s tab.
This conflicts with many other reports about the nanny, who was allegedly fired by Affeck's estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, 43, after a trip to Las Vegas with Affleck, 42. According to People, the 28-year-old’s five-night stay at the Bel-Air Hotel had to cost over $10,000. Her added expenses (like spa days and dining at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant) would bring the bill to at least $12,000.
While TMZ’s sources claim that Ben isn’t footing that bill, they did not deny that Ouzounian went to Las Vegas with Affleck and football player Tom Brady on a private plane in June before she was fired. “As for Ben flying Christine back from the Bahamas and to Vegas with Tom Brady , we're told a group of people were on the plane, and various people were trying on Brady's Super Bowl rings, including Christine,” the website states.
Rumors of Affleck’s affair with Ouzounian surfaced shortly after he and Jennifer Garner announced their divorce. They were married for 10 years and share three children: Violet, 9; Seraphina, 6; and Samuel, 3. Affleck has denied having an affair with his children’s nanny. “The story is complete garbage and full of lies,” the actor’s representative told People of Us Weekly’s claims that Affleck and Ouzounian had a relationship. “It's shameful. We are considering legal options.”
