Ben Affleck Shoots Down Nanny Story, Calls It 'Garbage'

Ben Affleck, who split with Jennifer Garner last month, is hitting back at wild claims he’s now dating his children’s nanny, and calling the gossip “complete garbage.”

Us Weekly printed the article this week, even after Affleck’s rep called the allegations “baseless and untrue.” Now, Ben is threatening to take the mag to court over the gossip. Reps for the mag tell us "we stand by our reporting."

His rep told “Extra,” “The story is full of lies. You shouldn’t be able to hide behind blind sources and attempt to destroy families going through a difficult time.”

Affleck, who has continued to wear his wedding ring, insists he and Garner are remaining friendly for the sake of their kids, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
