Ben Affleck and Christine Ouzounian - the nanny who multiple sources confirm to In Touch magazine had a fling with Ben while working for him and his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner — have been in constant contact since their scandalous romance broke in late July but sources tell the mag that it may all be to avoid further scandal.
A source exclusively reveals to In Touch that Ben has put Christine up at his favorite luxury hotel and is paying for everything and spoiling her: “Christine is living the high life holed up in a swanky suite and Ben is paying for all of it — even for her girlfriends, who have been staying with her,” a friend tells In Touch of the nanny, who worked for the Afflecks this spring and was let go around the time of their divorce announcement on June 30.
“Ben has given her enough money to cover all her bills and expenses, plus spending money, for at least the next three months. She doesn’t have to worry about a thing.” Ben's rep has called reports of a romance between Ben and Christine "garbage."
However, the friend believes "Ben’s leading her on so that she stays quiet.”
Adds the source, “He knows he needs to keep her happy or the whole thing could turn ugly really fast. She doesn’t feel burned by Ben — not yet, anyway.”
And if she gets burned, Jen is going to feel the heat.
Another source tells In Touch: “Christine is considering suing Jennifer Garner for wrongful termination. If Ben dumps her, she will sue.”
If things couldn’t get worse for Jen, the first source says, “Christine has been calling and texting Ben nonstop. She’s in love with him and is telling friends that she would marry Ben the minute his divorce is finalized.”
