Affleck has reportedly moved out of the Beverly Hills home he shared with Lopez.

Sources told Daily Mail on Tuesday that Lopez and Garner were concerned about Affleck. J Lo has allegedly been confiding in her husband's ex because she felt like Garner was "one of the only people in the world who would understand what she is going through," one insider said.

"[Garner] has been through it with the same man herself and although the circumstances were quite different... they both dealt with some of the same issues," the source claimed.

Affleck and Garner divorced in 2018, and the Alias star has been dating businessman John Miller for years. The actress was reportedly determined to help save her ex's new marriage, viewing Lopez as a source of stability for Affleck.

"Jen does not want Ben to pull the plug on this marriage because she really does care about JLo," the insider continued, going on to reveal that Garner "did go to his house to talk to him about this and to try and keep the two of them together."

"JLo was told several times by Jen how valued she is in all their lives," the source added. "She is one of the only women who can get through to Ben and keep him from jumping off the deep end with his addiction."

Affleck confessed during a February 2020 interview with the New York Times that his drinking had exacerbated "marital problems" with Garner.

“People with compulsive behavior, and I am one, have this kind of basic discomfort all the time that they’re trying to make go away,” he told the newspaper. “You’re trying to make yourself feel better with eating or drinking or sex or gambling or shopping or whatever. But that ends up making your life worse. Then you do more of it to make that discomfort go away. Then the real pain starts."

"It becomes a vicious cycle you can’t break," he continued. "That’s at least what happened to me.”
