What could be scarier than running into your ex on Halloween? Spending the whole day with him! But if you're Christina Aguilera, you might have this situation completely figured out.
A messy split from husband Jordan Bratman. The National Anthem lyric-flub at the Super Bowl. A fall onstage at the Grammys. And now, an arrest? We're a little scared to think about what's next for Christina Aguilera.
Christina Aguilera may have reached a settlement for her divorce from Jordan Bratman, but things are far from peachy for the songstress. The girl took some major heat last week after the now-infamous National Anthem lyric-flubbing at the Super Bowl, and her singing career is not exactly looking up after her return to the stage at the Grammys. While she didn't forget the words to her part in the Aretha Franklin tribute, she did trip onstage during the performance... while just sort of standing there. It was extremely awkward and definitely begged the question: What on earth is going on with Christina?
By Jessica Downey of Chicago Now’s All the Single Ladies Christina Aguilera recently divorced Jordan Bratman, and she is about to turn 30 in December. I am at the opposite end of things – I just turned 30, and I have never been married (read that as I am totally and completely single).
Things are getting serious for Christina Aguilera and her new man, Matthew Rutler. Although it's only been about two months since Xtina filed for divorce from Jordan Bratman, she's invited the handsome production assistant to move in with her. However, considering that Jordan had refused to move out of the house, we can't imagine that the living situation was very comfortable...
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."
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.
