Actor Ben Affleck is reportedly looking to get back with his children's former nanny, Christine Ouzounian after divorcing his Jennifer Garner.

According to X17 as cited by inquisitr, Affleck has been messaging Christine and trying to rekindle their romance. The actor didn't say anything about his alleged relationship with Ouzounian. The rumours initially surfaced shortly after Garner and Affleck officially announced their split.

Meanwhile, Garner had defended her former husband saying, "Let me just tell you something. We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny."

Garner explained, "She had nothing to with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation. Bad judgment? Yes. It's not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives. I have had to have conversations [with my children] about the meaning of 'scandal.'"

However, a source close to the couple told Gossip Cop that Batman v Superman star is not trying to get back to the nanny. In fact, he did not even contact her.

It is hard to say if the dating rumours are true or not but it is clear that things are over between Affleck and Garner. According to Daily Mail reports, the two officially filed for divorce in a Los Angeles court and put an end to their marriage of 12 years. They filed the papers without lawyers and requested for a joint custody of their three kids- Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5.

They filed for divorce after two years of their official announcement of separation. The former couple had an amicable separation. In fact, they did not specify any spousal payments in the petition, but before the paperwork is finalized, the judge might award an amount.
