Christina Ouzounian has been sitting pretty for a while now, but particularly since news of her affair with Ben Affleck – infidelity which is said to have played a large part in his divorce from Jennifer Garner – went public. First he holed her up in the extremely pricey Hotel Bel-Air for a while to avoid the press, and now it seems like he’s bought her a brand new Lexus convertible, which I think we can all agree is hardly the type of car you can afford on a nanny’s salary.
Here’s the car in question and Christine posing with it like she hasn’t got a care in the world:
Ben is still trying to downplay this whole thing, despite the fact that Christine just flew with him and Tom Brady to Vegas for some poker thing last weekend and was posing for pics in their private jet and shit. But yeah, okay, they’re not talking! He didn’t buy her a car, someone else did, because random strangers love gifting expensive cars for no reason!
“He did not buy her the car,” says Affleck’s friend. “It’s not from him.”
Affleck’s friend also disputes that the actor and Ouzounian are still in contact. (The star has denied any infidelity.) “They are not in communication. They are not talking,” the source says. A friend of Ouzounian told PEOPLE last week that Affleck and the ex-nanny are “in touch every day, all day long.”
“Christine is fine,” a friend of Ouzounian tells PEOPLE. “She is just living her life.”
Meanwhile, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star, who turns 43 this Saturday, is on his way to Atlanta to see his family. “He’s focused on his kids and his work,” his friend says. “He’s trying to ignore this circus.”
This whole thing continues to get classier and classier! Jennifer Garner and their kids must feel great about all of this!
