Ben Affleck has denied reports that he is dating a woman who was nanny to his three children.
Us Weekly reports that Affleck (42) has been dating 28-year-old California girl Christine Ouzounian who was hired to care for his three children Violet (9), Seraphina (6) and Samuel (3) this year.
The magazine quotes "multiple sources" who say an attraction has grown between the Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice star and Ouzounian with one quoting the nanny as saying it's "true love".
They also state that once Garner (43), who was reportedly in the middle of a 10 month trial separation from Affleck at the time, let Ouzouniaqn go once she heard about their alleged romance.
However, a rep for Affleck responded to the magazine with a denial, "all allegations of a romantic relationship are baseless and untrue".
A further statement made to MailOnline stated, "It's garbage" and New York Post's Page Six reported this response from his reps, "The story is complete garbage and full of lies. You shouldn't be able to hide behind 'blind sources' and attempt to destroy families going through a difficult time. The tabloid [Us Weekly] decided to construct stories in order to sell magazines. It's like story time in kindergarten. It's shameful and desperate."
Ben and Jennifer announced their split after ten years of marriage last month.
Ben has assumed writing, directing and acting duties on his new film, Live by Night, which is scheduled to hit cinemas at the end of next year and will also feature Zoe Saldana and Sienna Miller.
It has been claimed Ben and Jennifer are temporarily staying in a property owned by Brooke Shields with their brood until further arrangements are made.
Ben and Jennifer’s home in the Pacific Palisades neighbourhood of Los Angeles is currently being renovated, which means they’ll have to uproot their brood until the refurbishment is complete.
It is believed they plan to remain living in the same property despite their split.
