New Details of Ben Affleck’s Alleged Affair With the Nanny Are What Cheating Clichés Are Made Of

Oh geez. We've just barely heard the rumor that Ben Affleck cheated on Jennifer Garner with the nanny, and now there's all sort of info floating around about their supposed affair. According to some sources, Christine Ouzounian is the one who spread the gossip herself.


OK, so there's a lot going on here.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner hired Christine Ouzounian last spring as their nanny, and she accompanied them to the Bahamas shortly after the Hollywood couple announced that their marriage was over. For unknown reasons, she no longer works for them, although Ben apparently wrote her a glowing letter of recommendation.

Christine apparently has ties in the Bahamas, as a source revealed that she quit her job as Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's nanny in order to live there with her fiancé, who is a local fisherman. They had been engaged about a year and a half, but it fell apart around the same time that Jen and Ben officially split. It was also about the same time she and the Afflecks parted ways.

But, other sources say that Christine was caught on film delivering champagne to Ben's rental after his split from Garner, and still others allege that she was in love with him.

Which brings us back to the rumor that she's the one who let the paparazzi know about the supposed affair.

Obviously, we can't know what's really going on. It's a lot of unverified sources claiming this and that. I like to believe that this whole ordeal is so unbelievably clichéd that it couldn't possibly be true. After all, isn't this what cheating clichés are made of?
