Lopez's career is facing a new challenge, and this time, it's coming from within her camp.

Lopez's workload was also mentioned as a concern and a potential cause of her alleged mediocre projects.

The source who spoke to the news outlet noted that the couple's priorities are "different," as Lopez is "often doing 50 things at once" and is "overworking," whereas Affleck "is not working as much by choice."

"Even though she has been dedicated to her marriage and kids, she's very busy," the source shared. "Ben supports her, but he doesn't want her to be disappointed when something doesn't do well."

Despite reports, the "Hustlers" actress' workload may not be her biggest problem. She recently told the Associated Press that she is taking things easy and is only going at "half" the speed she used to.
