Ben Affleck is not really dating Christine Ouzounian.
One month after announcing the end of his 10-year marriage to Jennifer Garner, a tabloid has claimed that the Oscar winner, 42, is seeing Christine, 28, a woman he and Jennifer, 43, hired as a nanny for their three children—Violet Affleck, 9, Seraphina Affleck, 6, and Samuel Affleck, 3—earlier this spring. "They would hang out without the kids," a friend of Christine's alleged. "And they were very flirty."
According to the magazine, Jennifer recently fired Christine.
However, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star's rep tells E! News that the Ben and Christine romance "story is not true," adding, "It's tabloid journalism hiding behind blind sources. It's a shameful ploy to stay relevant for the magazine."
"We are considering legal options," Ben's rep adds.
Ben and Jennifer announced their breakup last month.
"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time," the actors told E! News in a joint statement. "This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."
