His split from wife Jennifer Garner moved into the realm of scandal when it was alleged that the two-time Oscar winner was romantically involved with his nanny. Us Weekly published a report based on multiple sources, claiming that Affleck, 42, has been dating 28-year-old Christine Ouzounian, who was reportedly let go as the family's nanny after Garner learned of Ouzounian's "flirty" relationship with Affleck.
Affleck's rep has categorically denied the claims, calling the story "complete garbage."
"All allegations of a romantic relationship are baseless and untrue," Affleck's rep told ET.
Affleck certainly isn't the first celeb to be linked to an employee. Here are six other celebs involved in scandals with their staff.
1. Ethan Hawke
The Oscar nominee told The Guardian that his marriage to Uma Thurman was over when he began romantically seeing their two children's nanny, Ryan Shawhughes. Hawke's divorce from Thurman was made final in 2005, and he wed Shawhughes in 2008. They now have two children of their own: daughters Clementine, 7, and Indiana, 3.
2. Jude Law
The Sherlock Holmes star publically apologized to then-fiancee Sienna Miller in 2005 for having an affair with his children's 26-year-old caregiver, Daisy Wright. Law and Miller subsequently never made it to the altar. He's currently dating psychologist Dr. Phillipa Coan.
3. Arnold Schwarzenegger
The former Governor of California secretly fathered a son with housekeeper Mildred "Patty" Baena behind the back of his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver. When the new broke in 2011, the boy was already 13. The Terminator star owned up to his actions in a public statement on May 11, 2011, saying, "After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused.” While Shriver filed for divorce from Schwarzenegger in July 2011, their divorce has never been finalized.
4. Heidi Klum
The supermodel reportedly became romantically involved with her bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, prior to finalizing her split from Seal in 2014. In 2012, Seal accused her of "fornicating with the help." Klum and Kirsten dated for a year and a half before going their separate ways. Klum is currently dating 29-year-old art dealer Vito Schnabel.
5. President Bill Clinton
The former POTUS was at the center of one of the biggest sex scandals in U.S. history. Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives in 1997 after he was charged for lying under oath to a federal grand jury regarding his relationship with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky. He was later acquitted by the Senate in 1999. Clinton and former First Lady Hillary Clinton will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary in October. Meanwhile, Lewinsky has re-emerged in the public spotlight. In 2014, she wrote an essay for Vanity Fair, discussing the scandal, and earlier this year, she led a TED Talk in which she recounted what it was like to become one of the first victims of cyberbullying.
6. Mick Jagger
According to Jagger's biographer, Christopher Anderson, the legendary rock star had sex with Claire Houseman just hours after he and Jerry Hall had hired her to look after their children while Hall was sleeping in a room just 30 feet away. The Rolling Stones frontman, who has reportedly slept with more than 4,000 women, is rumored to have had many more alleged affairs before he and Jerry finally split in 1999.
