True Ben Affleck Affair With NannyThere's no denying Jennifer Garner has gone through a tremendous amount of hurt since her divorce from Ben Affleck, but sources close to the actress say the whole ordeal has just made her stronger. And Garner, who has been dealing with a broken marriage and new allegations that Affleck cheated on her with their nanny Christine Ouzounian, has been able to cope with the drama through support of close family and friends, including her mom, Patricia, and her sisters Susannah and Melissa. "She's not a helpless deer caught in the headlights," an insider tells People. "She's much stronger than you know." Although Affleck continues to deny the affair with the family's former help, pals of Garner say the cheating "was the final straw" and the "ultimate betrayal" for the actress. "She's grieving," says a source close to her, "but she has an amazing support system. She just had no idea what was going on." Another friend says of the mother-of-three, "She is very traditional," says a longtime friend. "That's who she is and that's what she represents. She's grounded and she's a fighter, but this is not what she saw for herself. She's shocked. This is not anything she wanted as an outcome for her family or her marriage. But everyone's rallying around her." And despite the heartbreak, Garner continues to be her professional self, a source tells the publication exclusively. "It's very obvious that she is having a terrible week, but it hasn't affected filming. She made it clear that she doesn't want any special treatment. No one is sweeter."
