Divorce can emotionally damage a child, but couples who choose to stay together and fight frequently aren't providing a healthy alternative. A la Christina Aguilera, couples breaking up for their kid's sake can be a good thing.
With this weekend's release of Burlesque, the diva-tastic film isn't the only thing in the spotlight. Enter the ever-unfolding love life of its star Christina Aguilera, and it's clear the drama has its place off-screen as well. Just a few weeks after announcing her split from music producer Jordan Bratman, Xtina is stepping out with a new man: Matthew Rutler, a production assistant she met on set.
Christina Aguilera and Cher seem to have more than fishnet stockings and amazing pipes in common. The co-stars in what will be this Thanksgiving's most notorious fluff flick, Burlesque, apparently hit it off smashingly on set. According to People, the twosome bonded over an unlikely topic: divorce. "We were like old chatty girlfriends that could not stop talking," Aguilera says. "They had to drag us to set a few times because we were late just talking about love and relationships and life."
The rumors about Christina Aguilera just keep getting dirtier. A few weeks ago, soon after her split from Jordan Bratman, we first heard that Christina might be hooking up with Samathan Ronson, and now, she may have had a threesome with her as well! According to The Sun, "Sam said she had a threesome with Xtina in Mexico last month, that's when she realised she was a 'hot piece of ass,'' revealed a source, adding that Sam proclaimed the singer to be "horny as a college freshman." Christina even reportedly gave Sam a "Skype peep show," which we assume involved strategic placement of her video cam. (Do you think Christina borrowed any moves from her upcoming movie Burlesque?)
One thing is certain: if you are a celebrity who just split up with your partner, there will be no stopping the rumor train that will circle around you. Christina Aguilera did a good job of keeping her marriage to Jordan Bratman out of the public eye, but since their breakup a few weeks ago, she has not been so lucky.
Has DJ Samantha Ronson been spinning Christina Aguilera's tunes behind the scenes recently? Rumors sparked once again after paparazzi caught Sam tiptoeing out of Xtina's Bev Hills bachelorette pad at 2:00 am in what may have been a walk-of-shame moment. Fueling the fire was the fact that it just happened to be the same night the pop star's separation from hubby Jordan Bratman was announced.
Although a lot of celebrities like to talk (and exaggerate) about their sexuality for shock value, apparently, Christina Aguilera was being candid and truthful when she told Out Magazine back in May that "My husband knows that I get into girls. I think it’s fun to be open and play." In fact, according to RadarOnline, Christina and husband Jordan Bratman, whom she just filed for divorce from, had an open marriage, and Christina often liked to bring women home that she picked up at clubs while they were out together! “I was at The Abbey [a gay bar in LA] one night when Christina’s bodyguard approached me,” claimed an anonymous woman to RadarOnline. “He said, ‘My boss would really like you’ and pointed over to Christina.”
Compared to the blow-by-blow reporting about Courteney Cox and David Arquette's split this week, Christina Aguilera's separation from her husband Jordan Bratman has been relatively low-key. (Then again, Jordan was wise enough not to talk to Howard Stern in graphic detail about the end of his marriage, unlike a certain Mr. Arquette.) However, although there were no reports of infidelity like there were in the Arquette's break-up, X17 is reporting that Christina has already moved on from the split and is dating Lindsay Lohan's ex, Samantha Ronson! The two have supposedly been friends for a while, but, after going to Cabo to celebrate Nicole Ritchie's bachelorette party, the women "have been inseparable."
What is going on in Celebrityland? First, Ben Harper surprised Laura Dern out of nowhere with divorce papers last week, even though there were reports that the two had been intimate as recently as 7 days ago! Next, their friends and frequent double date partners, David Arquette and Courteney Cox announced yesterday that they have separated, amid rumors that both of them have cheated and/or that they had an open marriage. And, now, Christina Aguilera, whom we lauded only a few weeks ago for having, surprisingly, surpassed both Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson to be the only '90s pop star to end up in a stable marriage, has also reportedly split from Jordan Bratman, her husband of 5 years. "Yes, they are separated," said a source to People Magazine. "Right now, they're just trying to figure things out. There are no divorce proceedings at this point."
Out of all of the ‘90s pop tart singers, who had ever thought that Christina Aguilera, who famously flaunted butt-less chaps during her Dirrty phase, would be the one to end up in a happy, 5-year marriage? But, while the marital unions of fellow singers Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson have long since crashed and burned, Christina and her husband, Jordan Bratman, are still going strong. In fact, the singer can’t help bragging about her relationship in the new issue of British Cosmopolitan and dishing out a little advice to those not as lucky in love as she is.
Over the last ten years, we've watched our favorite celebs hook up, break up, break down, flip out, and start over. With all of its love triangles, legal battles, family dramas, and political scandals, the "Naughties" certainly earned its wicked name!
This week Rihanna spoke at length for the first time about the abuse she suffered at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. Here, five other celebrities who were victims of domestic abuse, and how they overcame the violence and made themselves healthy and successful.
So, we guess the days of raunchy sexcapades is over for the Beautiful singer. While we must admit while scenes from Fighter were strong, powerful images, the whole look was a little, well, Dirty. And then of course, there was the Madonna-Britney-Christina kiss at the VMAs. But we're done discussing Christina's past transgressions. If she's feeling sexier right now as a mom, we're proud of her.
Britney Spears and singer Madonna appear to be regular pals. Good enough friends that Britney felt comfortable asking Madonna if she'll remarry. Madonna told the younger version that women like them are just not meant for marriage and to count her lucky stars. In other news, Kate Hudson was reportedly all up on A-Rod at a hotel opening. Oh, get a room you 2.
