- Jennifer Garner does not mind Ben Affleck’s reunion with Jennifer Lopez
- A source said the actress only wants what’s best for her ex-husband
- Garner’s main priority is the happiness of their three children at this point
Jennifer Garner is unbothered by Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s recent reunion.
A source exclusively revealed to Entertainment Tonight Sunday how the “Yes Day” star, 49, reacted to the news that her 48-year-old ex-husband has been spending some time with the 51-year-old singer-actress.
“Jen isn’t bothered by Ben hanging out with J.Lo or anyone else. She wants what is best for Ben,” the source said of Garner.
The source added that what Garner really cares about is Affleck’s role in the lives of their three children — Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9. And since the “Batman v Superman” star has been a great father to them, she does not mind whatever he does with his personal life.
“What matters most to her is Ben being a great dad. They’ve been in a good groove when it comes to co-parenting for a while and their kids’ happiness is Jen’s main priority,” the source said.
On Friday, Affleck was spotted exiting a white Escalade SUV after reuniting with Lopez at the latter’s Los Angeles mansion. Eyewitnesses said the two have been spending some time together.
Their sighting comes in the wake of Lopez’s recent split from former MLB star Alex Rodriguez, 45. Lopez and Rodirguez released a joint statement on April 15 announcing their decision to end their engagement after four years of being together.
It should be noted that Lopez and Affleck were also formerly engaged back in 2002. The pair even went on to become a power couple after co-starring in “Jersey Girl” and “Gigli.” However, they called off their engagement in 2003 and ultimately broke up in 2004.
Although the two parted ways, Lopez and Affleck remained good friends through the years, according to People. The media outlet also noted that their recent reunion was friendly and nothing more.
“They are friends. They have always been friends and they have seen each other through the years,” an insider was quoted by the outlet as saying.
Prior their reunion, Affleck was dating Cuban actress Ana de Armas. They first sparked romance rumors in March 2020, and they eventually confirmed their dating status. However, they broke up in January as they were “moving in different directions in their lives,” as per Us Weekly.
