Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s former nanny, Christine Ouzounian, has been enjoying hotel life, amidst allegations that she and Affleck are having an affair. Reports claim that Affleck will cover the costs of the ex-nanny’s luxury hotel stay.
A source told People that Ouzounian has been staying at the Hotel Bel Air and that the “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” actor “is taking care of Christine's expenses at the hotel." The 28-year-old former nanny was first spotted entering the hotel on July 29, the day news of the alleged affair broke. Ouzounian was also photographed at the posh hotel on July 31 and Aug. 2. An eyewitness told the magazine that she was still staying at Hotel Bel-Air Tuesday and shared that the ex-nanny was spotted at the pool several times, as well as the spa and at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant. “She seems relaxed and happy. She hangs out with girlfriends, reads magazines and is on her phone a lot," the insider added.
The magazine tried to reach out to Affleck’s representative for comment regarding the latest news, but without success. The “Gone Girl” actor, via his representative, had previously denied the affair.
Earlier this week, Us Weekly revealed a photograph which showed Ouzounian chatting with Affleck. The actor was holding a wine bottle in his hand, while she nanny was standing beside a car. The two were photographed just outside Affleck’s L.A. home. An eyewitness previously told the magazine that Affleck was “clearly happy to see her.” The insider shared, "Ben walked out just as she was pulling in. He had a giant smile on his face. They were gazing into each other's eyes."
Meanwhile, Page Six has observed that Garner and Affleck’ former nanny underwent a “media savvy-makeover” since the story broke. Ouzounian reportedly hired a P.R. firm, after which she “took a star turn” and was spotted Wednesday wearing tight jeans, designer shades, pristine make-up and flip-worthy hair with highlights. The notorious beauty was said to have given the paparazzi a “saucy wave” as she smiled brightly.
Affleck and Garner hired Ouzounian to look after their children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel. Garner reportedly fired Ouzounian after she found out about the alleged affair.
