People close to Ben Affleck continue to deny that he’s in contact with his kids’ former nanny, Christine Ouzounian, and that he’s paid her any money. Meanwhile, she spent some time at an exclusive hotel and is now driving around LA in a new Lexus despite being unemployed as far as anyone knows. Now someone claims to know how Ben is getting money to Christine.
A source close to Ben said:
He did not buy her the car. It’s not from him.”
Furthermore, the source added:
They are not in communication. They are not talking.”
This contradicts a friend of Christine’s who said they talk “every day.”
While Christine has been spotted out and about in LA, trailed by the paparazzi. During a lunch at Il Pastaio, a source said:
She looked like she wanted attention.”
Ben, who will turn 43 this weekend, is preparing to fly back to Atlanta.
He’s focused on his kids and his work. He’s trying to ignore this circus.”
So if Ben isn’t giving Christine money, and she’s unemployed, then how is she enjoying this lavish new life? A source claims Ben is funneling money to her through an intermediary.
Ben directed his business manager to pick up the tab for Christine’s hotel stay, and the manager was obviously reimbursed. Ben wanted Christine to have a safe place to stay after the rumors stated about their involvement. It’s now becoming apparent that Christine is loving the attention she is getting from the media.”
Why would Ben need to hide this? Jennifer Garner.
[Jennifer] would obviously not like that at all. This entire scandal with their nanny has been very unseemly for them.”
That makes sense. I have no idea if this is true or not, but I could see it happening. At one point, I remember someone close to Ben saying no one would find his credit card information at the Hotel Bel-Air paying for Christine’s stay. Well, that would be true if he had someone else picking up the tab whom he then reimbursed. It would also work for paying her any amount of money (some of which she could use to buy a car for herself). If I had to guess on this one, I’d call it “Fact,” even if I have no way of confirming it. What about you?
