Vroom, vroom! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s former nanny Christine Ouzounian has been zipping around Beverly Hills in a plush new ride: a sparkling white Lexus IS Convertible that comes with a starting price tag of $43,000.
Ouzounian, 28, who dated Affleck after he separated from Garner, stepped out of her home on Wednesday, Aug. 12, and set off in her brand-new, hardtop Lexus.
Ouzounian looked California casual in a navy blazer with the sleeves rolled up, fitted white T-shirt, blue skinny jeans, and a pair of white Chucks, with her long blonde tresses freshly blown out. She also accessorized her blue outfit with a matching purse by Henri Bendel.
Clearly a fan of her new ride, the Arizona State University communications grad also took to her Instagram this week to boast about the luxury car. In a post obtained by Entertainment Tonight, the former preschool teacher reportedly wrote: “Keep calm and meet my new drop top Lexi.” She accompanied her words with a photo of herself parked near Santa Monica Pier.
This isn’t the first time Ouzounian has been spotted zipping around in a Lexus. As revealed by Us in the Aug. 10 issue, she also drove up to Affleck’s pad in his Lexus on July 17. “He was clearly happy to see her,” an eyewitness told Us at the time. “Ben walked out just as she was pulling in. He had a giant smile on his face. They were gazing into each other’s eyes.”
Us Weekly first broke the news of Affleck’s relationship with Ouzounian last month. She has subsequently posted a paparazzi photo of herself, captioning it with an Alicia Keys lyric: “She’s just a girl and she’s on fire.” In an Instagram photo obtained by Page Six earlier this week, a smiling Ouzounian was wearing all four of Tom Brady’s Super Bowl Championship rings.
The photo was taken aboard a private jet this past June, when Ouzounian joined Affleck in Las Vegas for the actor’s charity poker tournament. According to one source, the two stopped on the way to pick up Gisele Bundchen‘s husband in Affleck’s hometown of Boston.
A source close to the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star, meanwhile, insisted that the Vegas trip was “preplanned” and Ouzounian was “at the event and with the rest of Ben’s staff the whole time.”
Affleck and Garner announced on June 30 that they were splitting after 10 years of marriage. A rep for Affleck has previously said any romantic ties between Ouzounian and the Oscar winner were “baseless and untrue.” Garner’s rep could not be reached for comment.
