“When you’re unhappy in your marriage, your children are the ones who suffer,” says the Grammy-winning pop singer, whose own parents’ tumultuous relationship led to divorce when she was 7. “That’s the last thing I wanted for my son.”Since filing for divorce, Aguilera has been out in Los Angeles and New York City with a new man, Matthew Rutler, a set assistant on 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.
The 29 year old pop princess seems sincere in her reasons, but she also seems very immature and it sounds like she’s off to a fast start with her next infatuation. In July 2006, just four short years ago, she said this to Life & Style Magazine while promoting her single “Aint no other man”:
“I’m in the happiest place I’ve ever been in my life.” Of her marriage to music exec Jordan Bratman.
So how, in four short years, is she so unhappy that she said this to People.com:
“Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it,” the Burlesque star, 29, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. “I really didn’t want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up.”
Don’t want to judge, but she sounds very immature, and maybe even a little bit fickle. Marriage takes work, Christina. You can’t keep trading husbands and boyfriends just because you get a little “unhappy” sometimes – whatever that word even means. Especially not when you have children. Grow up. And another thing, she should be careful about flaunting a new man so quickly before the divorce is even final. Sometimes, these exes snap and do crazy stuff, Christina, out of jealousy. It more than likely won’t happen to you, but still. Be more considerate. Don’t flaunt this new relationship just yet. It’s insensitive, selfish, and rife with peril and may not even be worth the risk when you consider that in no time, you’ll be “unhappy” with him too. I’m just saying. As a big sister. Slow down.
