"J Lo has come to accept that Jen will always be a huge influence on Ben," the insider shared. "Even if they're not married, he still values Jen's opinion and respects her.

"While Jennifer is one of the issues that's caused recent tension in Ben's marriage, J Lo admits it helps her cause in the end."

The source said that "instead of fighting it, J Lo's trying a new approach — to join forces with Jen and be her pal." The crafty spitfire's reported goal is to schmooze Jennifer totally to her side as an ally and confidant.

"It's a huge shift in strategy, but her relationship's in major trouble right now, so desperate times call for desperate measures," said the source.

The ladies began playing nice last month when Jennifer took J Lo's kid to the Happiest Place on Earth. The 13 Going on 30 actress was photographed chaperoning a group of children — including her youngest daughter, Seraphina, and J Lo's 15-year-old Emme — at Disneyland.

"J Lo doesn't want to fight with Ben anymore," said the insider. "She wants peace and harmony and for Ben to love and cherish her again. And the best person to help her is Jen."

RadarOnline.com has reached out to J Lo and Jen's reps for comment.
