Ben Affleck and his children's nanny Christine Ouzounian have been surrounded by rumours that they dated while the actor was going through a trial separation with his estranged wife Jennifer Garner. A spokesperson for the Hollywood hunk has since rubbished the claims, calling the hearsay "garbage".

New reports have emerged claiming that Christine, 28, and Ben, 42, were involved in an affair and that the ex-nanny is "in love" with the father-of-three.

"It's been going on for a long time," an insider told People, while a second source added, "For Christine, it was a relationship. A friend warned her she was going to end up heartbroken."

1. She's a California girl.

The professional nanny grew up in Santa Monica, not far from Tinsel Town, and is the typical California girl. "She's very well put-together and fun," Christine's friend told People.

Christine is said to have been in the Bahamas with the family when the power couple went public with their split. She was later reportedly let go after Jennifer found out about her husband's close bond with Christine.
