Jennifer Garner helps Ben Affleck amid marriage struggles with Jennifer Lopez, trying to prevent him from relapsing into addiction.

Jennifer Garner is reportedly extending a helping hand to her ex-husband Ben Affleck. Amid multiple reports citing potential trouble in paradise for Bennifer 2.0, Lopez is said to be confiding in Garner, hoping to save their marriage and also Affleck who might be on the brink of losing his ‘sobriety.’ This comes just a few days after the Peppermint actress was spotted visiting the Gone Girl star in the Brentwood neighbourhood, where he is currently residing after reportedly leaving his $60 Million Beverly Hills mansion.

“JLo has been confiding in Jen because she knows that she is one of the only people in the world who would understand what she is going through,” a source close to the situation told Daily Mail on Tuesday. The need for support from Garner seems very valid because, as the source states, she has been through it with the same man herself. The source further mentions that even though the situation was different, it was still the same man, and no one could understand him better than her.
