There were some reports that the snaps of Affleck hanging out with his ex left Lopez "absolutely furious."

The insider also claimed that Affleck and Garner's reconciliation was made possible by his new relationship with Lopez.
"One of the things that made [Garner] and [Affleck] get to a better place was - and is - JLO," the source said.

The source claimed, "They want to get back to work and are looking forward to the strikes being over but they are also very much enjoying the more time they are spending with each other."
