There is an almost unbelievable report going round that Hollywood star, Ben Afleck, who recently separated from his wife, actress Jennifer Garner actually tricked his wife to play nanny to their children while he cheated on her with their nanny.
While the couple vacationed in Bahamas with their children and of course with the nanny who was there to watch the children, Ben convinced Jennifer to watch the kids and then cornered the nanny somewhere to have a time out with her.
He had asked the nanny to join him on a flight back to LA while his wifey stayed behind to keep an eye on the children.
A source told Hollywood Life.com, “He assured her it was okay. Technically he was her boss. But along the way, he convinced her to go to Las Vegas with him for a poker tournament. They even stopped and picked up Tom Brady for the trip. While in Vegas, Ben hid Christine (the nanny) the entire time.”
But then, Jennifer suddenly realised what was going on, how she was playing nanny to her children while the paid nanny was out with her husband and fired the nanny.
But on the other hand, another source, a close friend to Ben is saying that Ben Afleck did not cheat with the nanny but took her along to help with a charity event in Las Vegas: “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,” the source said.
“Ben and Tom Brady are good friends, and he is grateful that Tom agreed to attend his charity event.”
The source also disproves the story that Ben hid the nanny in Las Vegas:
“When they landed in Vegas, Christine helped out with the organization of the tournament, assisting clients and guests who attended. She was not hiding, she was there to help out. After the tournament ended Ben returned to the Bahamas to the family. Christine went home to LA.”
Meanwhile people are accusing the nanny of enjoying all the attention the divorce controversy is garnering for her.
