It's only been one month since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner confirmed their split when it was rumored that the Oscar winner already started the moving on process.
On Wednesday, it was reported that the Argo director had found a new leading lady in his life. Whoa!
Allegedly, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star was linked to the former nanny of his three children, Christine Ouzounian. What the what?!

However, Ben's reps have since stated:
"…all allegations of a romantic relationship are baseless and untrue."
Hmm, very inneresting. The duo are said to have initially met in the midst of Ben's secret 10-month trial separation from his wife.
Nonetheless, the actor's team is vehement that the story is complete "garbage."
"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 decided to construct stories in order to sell magazines. It's like story time in kindergarten. It's shameful and desperate."
Ouch! Remind us not to cross Affleck's people.
Their frustration arose after an insider shared:
"They would hang out without the kids. And they were very flirty."
Apparently, when the flirtations were discovered by Miz Garner the babysitter was axed. Yikes.
We could wrap our heads around potential flirtation — but we have doubts that Christine and Ben supposedly kept in touch over text and email following her firing from the family's service.
Another source shared:
"She says Ben really, really likes her. She's saying this is true love."
True love?! If there was a secret affair, we don't think their separation would currently be so civil.
We think we're going to side with Ben's people on this one. What do U think?!
