Ben Affleck's former nanny Christine Ouzounian may have been the subject of intense speculation about her personal life over recent weeks, but she appears to be taking it in her stride. The 28-year-old broke her silence on Sunday to post a paparazzi photo of herself on Instagram.
"'She's just a girl and she's on fire' – Alicia Keys," Christine captioned the snap.
Although her Instagram account is set to private, Christine's post was quickly circulated online with many commenting that the nanny was "relishing" the attention she has been getting in recent weeks.

Christine Ouzonian broke her silence on social media
Christine has been staying at the Hotel Bel-Air to keep a low profile after photos emerged of her and Ben meeting up in July – with the actor reportedly picking up the bill.
The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star recently denied rumours that he and Christine had an affair, telling the New York Post's Page Six: "The story is garbage and full of lies.
"You shouldn't be able to hide behind 'blind stories' and attempt to destroy families going through a difficult time. The tabloid decided to construct stories in order to sell magazine. It's like story time in kindergarten. It's shameful and desperate."
Us Weekly had claimed that Ben, 42, and his estranged wife had hired Christine to look after their children – Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and three-year-old Samuel – while they were going through a trial separation.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their split in June
A friend of Christine's told the magazine: "They would hang out without the kids. And they were very flirty." The source went on to say that the nanny is claiming "it's true love".
Ben and Jennifer announced their split in June in a joint statement, writing: "We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy who ask to be respected during this difficult time."
Since then both have been pictured with their wedding rings still on – and the pair were publicly reunited for the first time since their split over the weekend when they took their children shopping in Atlanta, where Jennifer is currently on location filming her new movie Miracles from Heaven.
