In Touch magazine has exclusively learned Ben Affleck’s former nanny, Christine Ouzounian, has checked out of the Bel-Air, where Ben was putting her up, and is now hiding out in an exclusive private residence in the LA – that Ben is also paying for!

Christine seems to be cashing in on this relationship. Not only is she getting her living expenses taking care of, “She bought a brand-new Lexus convertible with the money he gave her,” Christine’s pal spills.

“Christine can’t afford a $50,000 car and a home that rents for $10,000 a month — she was making a nanny’s salary,” says the friend. “You do the math.”

And the pressure seems to be getting to Ben. An eyewitness tells In Touch the actor paced nervously outside his Atlanta rental on Aug. 9, clutching a drink and a cigarette. “He was obviously stressed,” the witness says.

“The big problem is making sure Christine doesn’t unravel,” the friend tells In Touch. Ben’s rep continues to deny claims that Ben and his former employee are romantically involved (the rep also denies that Ben is paying her living expenses).
