Remember the pictures of Christine Ouzounian, the nanny whom Jennifer Garner fired, reportedly after discovering Christine and Ben Affleck were having an affair, posing with her new Lexus? Well, she ran some errands yesterday, driving around in her new wheels. You can see those pictures in the gallery after the break. Apparently the paparazzi attention got so bad she had to call a police escort. However, people close to Ben claim he did NOT buy the car.
Sources told TMZ that Ben is not financing Christine’s lavish new lifestyle. Furthermore, they answered a few of the other most recent reports.
As for Ben flying Christine back from the Bahamas and to Vegas with Tom Brady, we’re told a group of people were on the plane, and various people were trying on Brady’s Super Bowl rings, including Christine.
There are several reports Ben has put Christine up in a high end L.A. hotel, but our sources say that’s absolutely not true.
The sources do not take issue with reports that Ben had some sort of friendship with Christine, but they insist he currently has absolutely no contact with her.
So that’s what Ben’s people are currently saying.
I feel like this is one of those situations where the devil is in the details. If Ben, say, paid her a certain amount of money in return for Christine signing a non-disclosure agreement, then he technically didn’t buy the car or pick up the tab for her Hotel Bel-Air stay: she did. She just paid for it with the money he could have given her.
Given the fact that she’s currently unemployed, perhaps she had a lot of money saved from her work as a nanny. Maybe some other wealthy benefactor is paying for all of this and Christine is just working her 15 minutes of fame the best she can, knowing we’ll all think it’s Ben paying for this. It could be Christine comes from a wealthy family herself but worked as a nanny because she likes kids. What option seems most likely to you? If you think it could be something else, then share it in the comments!
