Affleck's friends are coming to his defense after news surfaced that Ben and his former nanny Christine Ouzounian had taken a private jet to Las Vegas together in June. One of his pals told Page Six, “Christine flew with Ben from the Bahamas to Vegas because she was helping him with his poker tournament for his charity [the Eastern Congo Initiative].”
The insider added, "[She] was flying back to L.A. anyway, so decided to take a ride on the plane, and then just went to the tournament to help out as an extra hand. There were many other people on the plane, including other assistants and staff working for Ben who were helping with the event, and many of these also tried on Tom’s Super Bowl rings and took photos."
“She was not hiding. After the tournament ended, Ben returned to the Bahamas, to the family. Christine went home to L.A.," the source shared.
Meanwhile, In Touch magazine claims Christine is holed up at a luxury pad in L.A., however, she has been seen out and about in L.A. with her brand new Lexus!
Ben has vehemently denied any romantic relationship.
