Ben Affleck Nanny Christine Ouzounian Wasn’t Obsessed with Celebs, Thought Job Was a ‘Good Business Opportunity,’ Friend Says.

Whether has anything going on with his family’s now-former nanny or not (sources close to him say absolutely not, while still others say yes, yes they are), he is far from the first Hollywood heavyweight to be linked to a household employee., Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s former nanny who found herself at the center of a cheating scandal this week, sought work caring for celebrity children simply because she believed it paid “good money” – and didn’t care about having intimate access to stars, says a friend. “She was never obsessed with celebrities and only saw working as a nanny for celebs as a good business opportunity to make good money,” a childhood friend of Ouzounian tells PEOPLE. The latest headline dogging the actor, who was married to Jennifer Garner for 10 years before they revealed last month that they had separated, is that he’s dating his children’s once part-time nanny Christine Ouzounian. “It’s tabloid journalism hiding behind blind sources. While her soon-to-be ex is making headlines for his romance with the couple’s former nanny, Garner is going about business as usual in Georgia, where she’s been on location since early July.

You shouldn’t be able to hide behind ‘blind sources’ and attempt to destroy families going through a difficult time… It’s shameful and desperate,” a rep of the actor said. US Weekly claim Ben and his estranged wife hired the stunning and trained nanny this spring to look after Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, – while they were in the middle of trial separation. During a break from filming Miracles in Heaven in Atlanta on July 26, Garner, 43, stopped by Scottish Rite hospital with her costar Kylie Rogers to visit patients in the pediatric cancer ward. A source told PEOPLE: “[Garner]’s finishing a film so there hasn’t been like, ‘Okay, let’s get this done now,’ because they always were like, ‘This is happening and still moving forward.’ I don’t think they’re talking about it.

Ouzounian’s friend says she is “shocked about the Ben situation,” in part because she knows the Santa Monica native is close to her family and seemingly grounded. “Christine still lives in the family house where she grew up with her twin sister. One of the families Garner spent time with was the Shepherds, who were there supporting Henry Shepherd, 9, on his penultimate chemotherapy treatment for Osteosarcoma, a bone cancer. “It was a complete surprise. Indeed the pair are moving in to a new home together and are planning to rent Brooke Shields’ Los Angeles home once they return from Georgia, where the 43-year-old actress is currently shooting Miracles From Heaven. Their own Los Angeles property – where Ben is expected to move into a separate annexe on the estate – is currently undergoing extensive renovations and as they “don’t want to live in a construction zone”, they decided to seek alternative accommodation.

Here are four more stars who had (or were alleged to have had) relationships with the staff while married or otherwise attached: The British thesp and father of five with three different women admitted to a fling with nanny Daisy Wright in 2005. Ouzounian stepped out in Los Angeles Wednesday, a smile on her face as she was photographed looking chic in blue jeans, a sleeveless white top and carrying a blue leather bag. And what a tangled web: Wright had been hired by Law’s ex-wife, Sadie Frost, and he was dating Sienna Miller when he had the affair. “Following the reports in today’s papers, I just want to say I am deeply ashamed and upset that I’ve hurt Sienna and the people most close to us,” Law said in a statement to the British Press Association after Wright went public with a graphic account of their encounter. “I want to publicly apologize to Sienna and our respective families for the pain that I have caused.

Ouzounian began working with Affleck and Garner’s three children this spring, and one pal said she was with the family in the Bahamas when they announced their divorce on June 30. Marsha worked for the Williamses for about a year and then after Robin and Valerie split up, in 1986, she returned to the actor’s employ as an assistant. Things got dicey there for a while when, in 2008, the West Wing star and his wife, Sheryl Lowe, were sued for alleged sexual harassment by two of their former nannies. The actor, meanwhile, had previously sued both of the women for, among other things, breach of confidentiality and breach of contract, alleging they had conspired to extort $1.5 million from him and Sheryl.

Everything was figured out eventually, however: In May 2009, lawyers for all sides filed requests to have all remaining claims dismissed, an indication that an out-of-court agreement had been reached. The boy was already 13 by then. “After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” Schwarzenegger told the world on May 11, 2011. “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family.
