LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: It appears that Ben Affleck's ex-wife Jen Garner is trying to avoid his wife Jennifer Lopez at all costs. The '13 Going 30' actress previously skipped the couple's wedding in August claiming it to be due to a scheduling conflict. And now a trusted source has told RadarOnline about Garner making some changes in her annual holiday gatherings.

The 50-year-old actress is "not looking forward to the holidays like she used to," according to the digital news outlet. "It's really been Jen's job for the last 15 years to engineer these perfect Thanksgivings for her kids. Ben and J Lo's marriage changes that dynamic," the insider revealed. Affleck has been a regular in Garner's holiday celebrations after his split with the 'Papi' singer in 2015. However, things have drastically changed ever since 'Bennifer' tied the knot once again.

The source further revealed that it is Lopez who takes the important decisions in their marriage. "It meant so much for him to break bread together. But his place is with his wife, and J Lo calls the shots on everything important. It doesn't help that the two Jennifers are said to have a chilly relationship. The idea of them cooking together or giving warm and fuzzy speeches — it's not going to happen," the insider continued.

Finally, the informer confirmed that the children will be settling for two holidays in two separate houses. "The kids will get the best of both worlds. They'll shuttle between the two houses and have two holidays."

JLo shares twins, Emme,14, and Max,14, with ex-husband Marc Anthony, whereas, Affleck has three kids, Violet,16, Seraphina,13, and Samuel,10, with former wife Garner.

According to ET Online in late October, the newlyweds were planning to celebrate their holidays with their former lovers. "They have to sort things out with both sets of kids and their exes, but they would love to have all the kids together with them as one big family and are working on that now. Christmas is one of Jen’s favorite holidays, so she’s really excited," a source told the outlet.

The insider also confirmed that Jen Garner who is currently dating businessman John Miller has moved on from the past and wishes Affleck to be happy. 

The pair made headlines in early October when Affleck turned to Garner for help during his marital issues with Lopez. The 'Deep Water' actor was reportedly unhappy with his wife putting her career above their marriage. Moreover, Lopez argued about Affleck's smoking habits as well as tried to monitor his everyday fashion.
