Christina Aguilera talks about why she's divorcing Jordan Bratman
Christina Aguilera is finally speaking out on her pending divorce from Jordan Bratman. She's not very specific about why they split up, but we'd really like to rule out domestic abuse.
"Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it," the 29-year-old tells People. "I really didn't want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up."
She says it was hard to leave her husband of five years, but it was the best thing for their 2-year-old son, Max: "When you're unhappy in your marriage, your children are the ones who suffer," she adds. "That's the last thing I wanted for my son."
But hey, it's a-okay to go hooking up with some other guy before the ink on the divorce filing is even dry, right? She seems really enamored with Matthew Rutler, a set assistant on her movie Burlesque.
"He's the kind of person you could spend hours with on the phone talking to and all of a sudden it's daylight," she says.Explain that one to Max, mmkay?
