Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner's Recent Closeness Has Everything To Do With Jennifer Lopez, Claims Source

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck might be looking uncharacteristically close these days but there is reportedly no jealousy from Jennifer Lopez‘s camp — despite recent reports to the contrary.

Garner and Affleck separated in 2015 after 10 years of marriage and have had their fair share of ups and downs in the years since but, thankfully, things are looking up.

In recent weeks, Garner and Affleck have been seen hanging out on two occasions, laughing together and sharing an intimate embrace. The photos have caused quite a stir — even though it is clear these exes are happily in new relationships — and Affleck’s new wife, Lopez, is now is being dragged into the mix.

Initial reports claimed J.Lo was “furious” and “jealous” about Affleck and Garner’s bond but now a new source is defending the “Get Loud” singer to Daily Mail.

A source close to Lopez claimed the singer is delighted that her husband has a “happy co-parenting” relationship with his ex. “One of the things that made [Garner] and [Affleck] get to a better place was – and is – JLO,” the source shared.

“Ben is healthy. The drama of the past and the emotions of divorce are long gone and they are all making it work.” The source says Lopez and Garner are “friendly” with one another and that all of their kids “love each other.”
