Jennifer Garner Clarified That Christine Ouzounian Wasn't The Reason Behind Her Divorce From Ben Affleck
But Garner immediately cleared her ex-husband's name by saying that their marriage was long over even before the reports surfaced.
"We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation. Bad judgment? Yes. It's not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives. I have had to have conversations about the meaning of 'scandal,'" Garner told Vanity Fair.
Ben Affleck, Tom Brady Traveled With Christine Ouzounian On A Private Jet?
Now, stories about Ben Affleck and Christine Ouzounian's unlikely friendship are once again making headlines amid Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's marital woes. After all, there were claims that the nanny almost ruined Brady and Bundchen's marriage years ago.
The Things claimed that Ouzounian previously rode Brady's private jet with Affleck just days before the latter's split from Garner was announced. A photo of the nanny wearing Brady's Super Bowl rings also surfaced online. And according to the publication, the outing seemed suspicious.
"The suspicious thing about the whole scenario was first, that Ben was traveling anywhere with someone who wasn't his wife. At the time, his divorce proceedings hadn't yet been publicized, but of course, he and Jennifer reportedly split before the private plane trip [as sources would later suggest]," the publication reported.
The publication also questioned how close Ouzounian and Brady were to each other for the footballer to allow her to wear his Super Bowl rings.

Back in 2015, reports claimed that Bundchen threatened to divorce Brady after learning of the trip. Days later, Daily Mail suggested that there was more about the trip that Bundchen didn't know about. However, more details have never been released.
But fans now know that Brady and Bundchen did not split over Affleck and Garner's former nanny. The couple is still legally married today, even though multiple sources have been saying that they are on the brink of a divorce.
As of writing, Ouzounian is still reportedly in Los Angeles doing real estate. It's unclear if she's still friends with Affleck and Brady.
