You know what sounds like a really juicy story? A major movie star who recently split from his wife of 10 years suddenly dating the woman he hired to look after his kids. It's not like nanny drama hasn't happened before -- just ask Jude Law.
But that's apparently not the case for Ben Affleck, who Us Weekly claims is dating Christine Ouzounian, the 28-year-old woman he and soon-to-be ex-wife Jennifer Garner hired as a nanny for their three young children this spring.
A rep for the 42-year-old actor vehemently denied Us Weekly's report, telling Gossip Cop, “People’s lives are at stake, and they chose to try to sell more magazines” with “lies.”
Affleck's rep also called the story ”horrible” and “made up.”
Rumors the couple's marriage was in trouble first began swirling at the end of May, and Affleck and Garner announced their decision to divorce on June 30 in a joint statement, asking for privacy for both themselves and their children.
Neither Affleck nor Garner has commented on their split since issuing the statement. It appears to be amicable, as the couple took their children on a trip to the Bahamas immediately following their divorce announcement. Additionally, the actor was spotted still wearing his wedding ring as recently as July 20 when photographers snapped photos of him carrying a ridiculously adorable puppy in his arms while visiting Garner and the kids in Atlanta.
