Rumors have swirled that Ben Affleck cheated on Jennifer Garner, leading to their divorce after 10 years of marriage, and according to one report, it’s because he cheated with his children’s nanny.
Us Weekly reported that Ben, 42, is dating 28-year-old Christine Ouzounian, who he and Garner hired back in the spring to be a nanny for their three children—Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
The report said that the exes were on a secret 10-month trial separation when his romance with Christine first started. A friend of Ouzounian’s said that “they would hang out without the kids and they were very flirty.”
