Jennifer Lopez warns Jennifer Garner to stay away from Ben Affleck, source sensationally claims

Jennifer Lopez is less than happy with Ben Affleck meeting with his ex-wife in the midst of his current marriage troubles.

That’s according to Radar Online, who in recent days have said that J-Lo went as far as to warn Jennifer Garner to stay away.

Regular readers will be all too familiar with the current state of affairs regarding ‘Bennifer’ and the twisting, turning saga shows no signs of slowing down. Late last week Jennifer Lopez canceled all the dates on her planned This Is Me… Now tour in order to spend time with her family, perhaps the most concrete indication yet that something is awry.

Affleck, meanwhile, has moved out of the couple’s Beverly Hills mansion, and various reports have suggested that he is less than happy with the current state of things.

It was rumored last week that the superstar actor had perhaps come to miss Lopez during their time apart, but there was a noticeable lack of outward affection when the couple met last weekend to watch Affleck’s son play in a basketball game.

Radar Online this week shed light on another facet of the ongoing debacle, claiming that J-Lo’s nose is out of joint as a result of Affleck meeting up with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.

Affleck and Garner divorced back in 2015 but have retained a strong, supportive bond with one another. It can be assumed it’s that bond that has seen Garner attempt to help her ex-husband through his current woes.

Yet though her heart may be in the right place, Radar Online cite sources as having said that Jennifer Lopez has been openly opposed to Garner’s involvement.

“Everyone knows that Ben and Jen remained very close after their divorce. He confides in Jen about everything, even his issues with J Lo,” an insider reportedly told Life & Style.

“J Lo hates that Ben goes back to his sensible, down-to-earth ex-wife for advice and emotional support. She doesn’t want Jen’s input.”

The source added: “J Lo didn’t come right out and tell Jen to back off — both women have been down this road before and know their boundaries — but she did tell Ben that his ex needs to stay away from him and butt out of their personal drama. Ben then relayed the message to Jen.”

It’s been reported that Garner doesn’t want to see Affleck fall back into a destructive pattern of substance abuse and gambling, and Radar say she deems her support for his well-being as more important than what J-Lo thinks of her.

“Jen can’t stand by and do nothing. That’s not in her nature,” the aforementioned insider said.

“She has dropped everything to make sure Ben doesn’t spiral out of control again. At the end of the day, Ben is still the father of their children — and she will help him however she can.”

Though there’s been no official word from either Ben Affleck or Jennifer Lopez regarding their marriage, it certainly looks as though there’s trouble in paradise.
