"Jen loves vacationing in Europe during the summer. It's been nice for her to experience a change of pace and have some breathing room," a source told ET. "She has been having a blast with her friends. They love to go to fun dinners, have late nights, lay out in the sun, get dressed up, dance, and shop."

It comes after another source shared that Lopez has given up on trying to salvage what's left of her marriage to Affleck.

According to the Daily Mail, an industry insider shared that Lopez is "over" trying to fix the situation and has now realized that she can't do any "more" to save her relationship with Affleck.

"Jenny has had enough and she really tried but she can do no more, it's not getting any better, it's worse," the source told the news outlet, adding that Lopez is "shocked" by the bad press she's been getting.

"If people could see what she has really gone through they would be easier on her. Ben is a great guy but he can be grumpy and a downer," the insider continued. "I think the world saw that in photos like when they were at the Grammys last year; he wouldn't smile. If they saw how it really was, they would not attack her."
