The insider told the news outlet that Lopez was "shocked" by the negative press she had received regarding the rumored end of their marriage.

The singer reportedly believes that the bad press is not fair and that if people truly understood what she's been through, they would "be easier on her."

"Ben is a great guy but he can be grumpy and a downer. I think the world saw that in photos like when they were at the Grammys last year; he wouldn't smile," the source stated. "If they saw how it really was, they would not attack her. He chain smokes and cusses and seems irritated a lot of the time. Great director and actor, but not a lot of laughs with him, you know?"

The insider also said that despite the bad press about her, Lopez "will get over it" and "march on" with her life and future.
