As the great tabloid race to determine what exactly caused Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's divorce rages on, Us Weekly has unearthed a brand new "source," one who claims Affleck is dating his children's former nanny. A claim Affleck is categorically denying.

"The story is complete garbage and full of lies," Affleck's publicist Brooke Blumberg tells Yahoo. "You shouldn't be able to hide behind 'blind sources.' We are considering legal options."

Us claims Affleck and Christine Ouzounian became close when she was hired as a nanny for Affleck and Garner's three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. According to the magazine, Affleck and Garner were separated when Ouzounian was hired this spring.

The story is sourced to "multiple sources," none of whom are named. In fact, the only attributed quote comes in the form of a denial from Affleck's team.

Affleck's rep wouldn't go into detail about what specific legal actions they are considering, saying it's in the very early stages, as the story only went live Wednesday morning.
