Hot on the heels of one source saying Jennifer Garner is "done"playing marriage counselor to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner (dig into that beloww), another insider is out here telling Us Weekly that she has J.Lo's back. Or, as they put it, has become an "unexpected ally."

According to their source, the 13 Going on 30 actor has “been really friendly” with J.Lo amid this tense period with Ben: “She’s been helpful to J.Lo, and they’ve been relating to each other. Jennifer has been a surprising person for J.Lo to talk to," the insider explained.

That said, Jen has also been “supportive” of her ex, and is “prioritizing his well-being and their coparenting relationship.”

So, where do things with Ben and J.Lo stand? Another source tells Us Weekly that “They can’t get on the same page [and] have been discussing divorce as an option."

The couple are currently living apart (Ben is in a Brentwood rental) and quietly selling their shared home. Per the source, "Jennifer is distraught. She wants to sell their house off-market to try and get less attention surrounding it. Ben doesn’t care about the negative attention. He’s been through this before and it doesn’t faze him.”

As of now, neither Ben nor Jen have commented on the status of their relationship, and have both been seen in their wedding rings pretty recently (J.Lo's been wearing hers throughout her July trip to the Hamptons).
