Despite the fact that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are living under the same roof again, there is no chance of a reconciliation happening as the actor has reportedly made it known he wants to get back with Jennifer Lopez.
The somewhat shocking report comes just days after sources claimed that the Hollywood duo was trying to work on their marriage in the hopes of giving their relationship one last shot. With Affleck moving back into their $45 million California mansion, all signs seemed to signal at a reunion.

Naughty Gossip‘s sources would like to differ, alleging that Garner could partially be at fault for Ben Affleck’s supposed decision in wanting to get back with Lopez, for she was supposedly against the idea of giving their marriage another go.
The actress was said to have been put through endless obstacles throughout her marriage to Affleck, all while juggling motherhood and a hectic movie career. Ben’s reported gambling addiction and supposed affair with the family’s nanny had pushed Jennifer to the edge — to the point where even the thought of forgiving her husband for his constant hiccups had become inexcusable.

In her interview with Vanity Fair, the Butter star confesses that she still loves Affleck, adding that when his light is shining on her, it is certainly felt, but when it’s shining elsewhere, one can feel very isolated and alone.
In correlation with this point, the source insinuates that Ben Affleck might have already been plotting his moves to firmly put a Jennifer Lopez reconciliation in place, although, those plans might have become challenging since the American Idol judge is still dating her choreographer boyfriend, Casper Smart.
“What he did to Jennifer Garner was bad. JLO knows if she is even spotted with him, she will be pulled into this url split,” the insider reveals, giving the impression that Lopez doesn’t want any part in her ex-boyfriend’s divorce drama since the troubled couple has yet to finalize their disunion. “She wouldn’t meet with Ben even at a private house, it’s not going to happen.”
The claims regarding Ben Affleck allegedly wanting to reconcile with Lopez come just four years after the actor admitted to still being in touch with his former fiancée, whose heart he broke when he infamously called off their engagement in 2003.
“I remember when she got American Idol. I said: ‘This was really smart. Good luck.’ I touch base. I respect her. I like her. She’s put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I’m really pleased to see her successful.”
Having only discussed her marital problems with Ben Affleck to Vanity Fair, Jennifer Garner hasn’t talked about her marriage downfall any further. This has confused many of their fans, considering the idea that both Hollywood stars are now said to be living together again under one roof.
If Garner truly has no intentions of ever getting back together with her husband, several people on Twitter have questioned themselves as to why the actress would want to share the same house with Ben Affleck, since that should only make it harder for her. The 43-year-old father-of-three has given the impression that if Garner doesn’t want to work on their 10-year marriage, he will eventually decide to move on.
