Nearly a week after Ben Affleck's relationship with his nanny was exposed to the world, the woman at the center of the cheating scandal -- Christine Ouzounian -- has finally broken her silence!
In a bombshell new exclusive, Star magazine reports that an eyewitness overheard Ouzounian dishing about her relationship with Affleck at the Bel Air Hotel pool on Sunday, August 2. And what she said was shocking!
"Christine was skimming through a number of articles about her and Ben on her phone, and she was even admiring photos of herself taken on the street by the paparazzi," an eyewitness told Star.
"Then she got a phone call from a friend, and the conversation seemed to turn directly to Affleck."
"Christine told her friend 'He's still in Atlanta; I just got a text from him!'" the eyewitness claimed.
But that doesn't mean their relationship is heating up now that his marriage to Jennifer Garner is over.
According to the source, "she added, 'He broke up with me … He told me he loved me, but he can't be with me under these circumstances.'"
As Radar reported, insiders say Affleck made Ouzounian his confidante during the final days of his marriage, and even brought her along on a family vacation to the Bahamas after he and Garner announced their split on June 30.
Star's eyewitness revealed, "At one point while she was talking to her friend on the phone, without mentioning Ben by name, Christine said, 'I didn't want to go to the Bahamas, but he really wanted me to.'"
Sources told Radar Ouzounian has been reveling in her brush with the spotlight as she hides out in plain sight at the Bel Air.
A source told Radar, "She absolutely seems to be loving the attention. She looked like her hair had been professionally blown out. Photographers had been hounding her all day, but Christine didn't seemed to be bothered at all."
"She also seemed to be very eager and willing to talk to the hotel staff about her sudden burst of fame."
Affleck denies cheating on Garner with Ouzounian.
