Hey, in case you can’t get your fill of depressing divorce news…I got something for ya.
People reports that Jennfier Garner and Ben Affleck were going to make a decision regarding their future together during their Bahamas trip, and that the whole thing got derailed with some uh, very private nanny time.
A source close to the couple said: “It was game time. Ben had already told her he hadn’t been committed to the marriage. They were trying to figure out what to do.”
According to people, Garner found out while in the Bahamas that Affleck had been having an affair with the couple’s nanny Christine Ouzounian for months, which Affleck still denies, and then…splitsville.
“There was always a speck of doubt in Jen’s mind about separating but that’s now gone,” says a friend. “She is very angry. To Jen, this is the ultimate betrayal.”
Hired by the couple last spring, Ouzounian”was very caring and loving toward the kids,” says an L.A. source. But when Garner began filming Nine Lives in Canada, Ouzounian began spending more time with Affleck and “dressing a bit more inappropriately” around Affleck, adds the source.
Multiple sources have told People that Ouzounian told friends she was sleeping with Affleck and would often meet him at the exclusive Hotel Bel-Air. (“Not true,” says a source close to the actor, who maintains that Affleck and Ouzounian had a “work relationship and a friendship. Ben’s friendly, but it’s not always meant to be flirty.”) Ouzouzian’s friend says that “for Christine, it was a real relationship. They had even talked about plans for celebrating his upcoming [Aug. 15] birthday.”
Hmmmm…do you think Christine is still doing something for Ben’s Bday? Like, maybe pitching her own reality show? Gotta say, this is the juiciest divorce story happening right now, so if it’s getting too hot and heavy take a breather with the Gwen Stefani divorce proceedings, mmkay?
