UPDATE: Thursday, August 13 (9:38 p.m. ET) The new Lexus convertible that Ben Affleck’s ex-nanny, Christine Ouzounian, has been cruising around in was not purchased by the actor himself.
Sources told People last week that Ouzounian, 28, is in touch with Affleck “every day, all day long.”;
But according to Affleck’s friend, the “Gone Girl”; actor did not purchase the new ride.
It may be hard to believe considering Ouzounian has been seen staying at high-end hotels and flashing Tom Brady’s super bowl rings. But Affleck is spending time in Atlanta with his family, far from drama circling any allegations.
“He’s focused on his kids and his work,”; his friend says. “He’s trying to ignore this circus.”;
Christine Ouzounian, who is making headlines as Ben Affleck’s fling and former nanny, is now seen in an Instagram post wearing Tom Brady’s championship rings.
According to US Weekly, the photo, seen on Ouzounian’s private account, was taken on board a private jet when the trio were on route to Las Vegas for a charity poker tournament, June 26.

A source tells US that Ouzounian, 28, and Affleck, 42, picked up Brady on the way to Vegas, from the Bahama’s where Affleck’s family was vacationing.
The Instagram post shows a shoeless Ouzounian, sitting in her seat, smiling from ear to ear with Brady’s four rings on her fingers.
The source also tells US that it was Affleck’s idea for Ouzounian to come on the trip saying, “she was worried about being fired, but Ben assured her, ‘I’m your boss, too, you know!”;

Another source tells the magazine that the trip was strictly business.
“There were other people on the flight all headed to Ben’s charity event in Las Vegas. It was preplanned,” the source says. “Christine was at the event and with the rest of Ben’s staff the whole time.”
