"Ben then relayed the message to Jen."

Despite Garner and Ben ending their marriage nearly a decade ago in 2015, she still hates to see him suffering.

"Jen would never tell Ben, 'I told you it wouldn't work out,' but she does blame J Lo for the pressure she's put Ben under," the source noted. "She sees how Ben struggles with keeping up with J Lo's very public lifestyle."

And while the insider claims Garner initially tried to keep out of her ex-husband's relationship issues, they added the actress doesn't want to see Ben fall back into destructive behaviors, like substance abuse and gambling, as he has in the past.

The source added, as Garner sees it, Ben's well-being is more important than how J Lo feels about him talking to her.

"Jen can't stand by and do nothing. That's not in her nature," the mole said. "She has dropped everything to make sure Ben doesn't spiral out of control again. At the end of the day, Ben is still the father of their children — and she will help him however she can." has reached out to Ben and J Lo's reps for comment.
