Could this story get any worse?!
According to a source, Jennifer Garner was forced to fire Ben Affleck's alleged love interest, nanny Christine Ouzounian, on July 1 after she discovered the scandalous pair had been intimate while on a family vacation to the Bahamas. Um, is sleeping with the babysitter Ben's idea of co-parenting?

The source dished:
"What started out as a flirtation quickly turned into more. Ben would set up covert meet ups."
So why didn't Jen do something when she first became "suspicious" of the twosome's relationship? Apparently Garner was hesitant to pull the trigger because Christine was a "sweet girl" and that she was "adored" by her three kids.
Sigh. What a terrible betrayal by both parties!
Despite the torrid vacation romance, an insider claims that was NOT the sole season for the Jen and Ben's split, saying:
"This was not the reason they announced the separation. It was one of many things. Ben is absolutely not dating anyone. There is nothing physical of romantic between Ben and Christine. Dating is not his focus and it hasn't been his focus throughout the separation period. He was tired of Jen's negative energy and constant berating—but that does not mean he cheated."
Very curious. While we want to believe that the 42-year-old didn't step out on the actress, it's becoming more and more difficult to believe!
Keep your head up, Jennifer!
