In the midst of filming her newest movie, Miracles from Heaven, Jennifer Garner is caught up in the alleged cheating drama that her husband, Ben Affleck, has brought upon the family. According to reports, the duo’s former nanny, Cristine Ouzounian, has been receiving hush money from Garner, in hopes that she can protect her family from the alleged cheating affair her husband had with her.
Star magazine very openly claimed that the Argo actor had been seeing the family’s nanny following the news that Garner had made the decision to fire Ouzounian — presumably because she found out that her soon-to-be ex-husband was sleeping with their employee to begin with. The 43-year-old Hollywood star was infamously seen with Ouzounian earlier this month as she arrived at his newly-purchased house in Los Angeles with a bottle of champagne, failing to realize they were being photographed the entire time.
Since their somewhat of a public outing, Ouzounian has been gushing on the lavish lifestyle she has been living, having snapped photos of herself driving a brand new Lexus, flying on private jets and enjoying expensive vacations with her closest friends. It is quite impossible to think that a celebrity’s nanny can all of a sudden afford private jets and brand new cars with the average salary that she was said to have been making during her time with the Afflecks.
So, how has she managed to change her life from an ordinary nanny to a woman of leisure? Sources close to the situation are convinced that 43-year-old Garner would have most likely paid the nanny off to keep her mouth shut on her supposed affair with Affleck. Some insiders allege that the cheating scandal was going on before the couple even considered the idea of getting a divorce, but in the end, Garner gave up.
The 13 Going On 30 actress is doing the best she can to keep her family together, but it seems that the damage that Affleck has caused upon them is irreversible, despite the fact that the mother-of-three embarked on a family trip to Disneyland with her estranged husband just last week. Sources say that the trip was more or less for the kids’ sake, not Garner herself, as one could only imagine how angry she must be to learn that her husband of 10 years had been seeing other women during their marriage.
While it is still unclear whether Affleck and Ouzounian are still in contact after their secret hookup was caught by photographers earlier this month, the former nanny continues to live the life she has so desperately been waiting for. Well, at least that is how it seems. The paparazzi are constantly lurking around her home in Los Angeles.
And while she may not be allowed to talk about the situation, due to the alleged hush money she bagged, the 28-year-old always makes sure she is photographed in her designer outfits when leaving her home. The idea of the nanny being proud and embracing the fact that she may have been the main reason behind a couple’s split is disturbing and worrying.
