Celebrity news and gossip surrounding Christina Aguilera in recent weeks has focused on her impending divorce from Jordan Bratman, father of the couple’s son Max. Recently, Aguilera spoke out about the causes of their split. She told People magazine, “Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it.” The Burlesque star also said she felt “torn about splitting our family up.”
The couple had been married five years, and she said she felt like her son would suffer more if the two remained in an unhappy marriage. Since filing for divorce, Aguilera has been seen with Matthew Rutler, who worked as a set assistant on Burlesque. By all accounts, she is quite smitten. She told People Rutler was someone she could “spend hours with on the phone talking to and all of a sudden it's daylight."
