Ben Affleck 'struggling with sleep since split'

Ben Affleck is allegedly only sleeping for a few hours a night.

The actor has been going through a rough time recently with the end of his ten-year marriage to Jennifer Garner, and intense speculation that he cheated with the family's nanny Christine Ouzounian.

While Ben and Jennifer continue to raise their three children together, sources say the actor is struggling with the circumstances.

"Ben blames himself for the split and is in a bad way. He's put on weight and seems to be only sleeping for a few hours a night," an insider told British newspaper Grazia.

"It was always really important to provide his children with the kind of family life he didn't have growing up, and he seems distraught that things haven't worked out. Things appear rather tense between him and Jen, to say the least."

Ben and Jennifer have been seen together numerous times since they announced they were separating in June, with the family residing in Atlanta while Jennifer films her new movie Miracles From Heaven.

Christine has been snapped on various occasions too, with reports that Ben footed the bill for her lavish stay at Hotel Bel-Air. Photos also emerged of Christine allegedly on a private jet to Las Vegas with Ben and his friend Tom Brady prior to Ben's marriage breakdown.

Page Six has reported the former nanny is hoping to land some reality TV work.

"The word in LA is that Christine is looking for an agent and wants a TV deal, on something like The Bachelorette or Dancing with the Stars. She knows she most likely can’t go back to nannying - who in LA would hire her now to take care of their kids? So she’s going to use the spotlight to build a showbiz career," a source told the website.
