Numerous outlets have reported that Garner pushed Lopez and Affleck into couples counseling after their rift hit a breaking point from those viral photos. No photos have been obtained of the pair going to a therapist’s office, but insiders claim Lopez has since been adamant about the two going to therapy together.

The insider hinted that Affleck isn’t as into the setup as the True Love author, saying, “Ben won’t get her to drop it by being stubborn.”

Not only has Lopez reportedly texted Garner about her grievances, but she allegedly made Affleck agree to a set of boundaries moving forward about how he interacts with his ex-wife.

Since then, many insiders claim things have been on the rougher side of their romance. However, the pair have stepped out on McDonald’s runs together, and have now, allegedly been working to mend this issue with therapy.
