Then, in July, the magazine said that many sources confirmed Affleck’s relationship with Ouzounian, who is 28 years old.

Affleck's representative, on the other hand, flatly disputed the reports, saying, “The story is complete garbage and full of lies.”

In 2016, during a candid interview with Vanity Fair, Garner spoke about her split from Affleck, explaining that the nanny was “not part of the equation” leading up to their divorce. 

She said, "We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny.”

What is Ben Affleck saying about Jennifer Garner?

During a December 14 interview with Howard Stern, Affleck revealed that he felt “trapped” in his marriage to Garner and that this was “part of the reason why I started drinking.”

“I was like, ‘I can't leave because of my kids, but I'm not happy, what do I do?' And what I did was [I] drank a bottle of scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution,”  Affleck said.

A source close to Garner said that upon hearing Affleck’s claims, she was “not particularly happy with Ben’s wording on the subject of why they divorced. 

“He gave an interview saying he felt ‘trapped’ in the marriage,” said the source. “Jen wouldn’t have used that phrase or even opened up publicly like that. It was disrespectful.”
