“[Garner] has been helpful to J.Lo,” a source claimed to the magazine, calling the “13 Going on 30” star, 52, a “surprising person for” Lopez, 54, to talk to.

Page Six has reached out to reps for Lopez and Garner for comment.

The “Let’s Get Loud” singer married Affleck, 51, in Las Vegas in June 2022 before walking down the aisle again in Georgia the following month.

Garner, for her part, separated from the actor in 2015 after 10 years of marriage and three children — Violet, 18, Seraphina, 15, and Samuel, 12.

The former couple finalized their divorce in 2018.

The exes have reunited many times over the years as they continue to amicably co-parent their little ones.

Lopez praised their dynamic in a 2022 Vogue interview, saying the duo “work well together.”

The singer, who called the blending of their families an “emotional process” last year, is often photographed spending time with her stepkids.

Their outings have continued throughout the split speculation that has surrounded Lopez and Affleck since May.

When rumors began to spread, a source told Us Weekly that Garner was “encouraging” her ex-husband to “work on his marriage” as she “fully supports their relationship and wants … him to be happy.”

The insider noted that the “Alias” alum is familiar with the “strain” that fame can put on a marriage.

However, Affleck has been living in a rental house for months and reportedly moved his things out of his and Lopez’s $60 million marital home in Beverly Hills, Calif., as they prepare to sell it.

The duo have been apart since March, Page Six reported last week.

Garner has been by her ex’s side throughout the drama, from visiting Affleck’s rental to spending Father’s Day with him.

The “Last Thing He Told Me” star has had a busy year herself, with her son graduating middle school and Violet heading to college.

The teenager, who celebrated her high school commencement in May, appears to be committed to Yale University, based on her sweatshirt choice in a recent photo.
