Christina Aguilera & Jordan Bratman Are Dunzo!


While many of us, me included, are still struggling with the shocking news that Courteney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette are dunzo, US Weekly magazine is reporting today that another celebrity marriage is dunzo as well. According to the mag, Christina Aguilera and hubby Jordan Bratman have split … actually, have been separated for months … just like Courteney and David were. HMMM. At this point, the news has not been confirmed or denied by the couple … so take the report for what it is:

Singer Christina Aguilera is going solo. Though the pop star, 29, told less than a year ago that she felt “very blessed” in her union with music executive Jordan Bratman, 33, a source close to Aguilera tells Us the couple “have been separated for a few months.” And though Aguilera and Bratman — who met in 2002 (he was a producer on one of her albums) and wed in 2005 — have not yet decided whether to divorce, the source reveals, “they are now living apart, and they will see how that goes.” What went wrong? “They were very much in love,” explains the insider. “But over the last six months, it ­became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife.”The source adds that Aguilera even “­proposed their August trip to Italy to ­rekindle their relationship, but it didn’t help.” The duo remain united in their commitment, however, to son Max, 2. “He is their main concern,” says the pal.

I have to admit, I find this report a bit dubious … especially with its timing. At first read, it feels a bit like a story that is meant to capitalize on the confirmed break-up of Courteney and David. Because it remains unconfirmed and offers no real proof of a split, I’m hesitant to believe it … just yet. BUT, I was so surprised by the news of Courteney and David’s split that, well, even tho I don’t necessarily believe this news about Xtina and Jordy just yet I suppose I have to consider that it may turn out to be true, just like Courteney and David. We’ll have to wait and see what Xtina has to say about this report from US Weekly.

UPDATE: Extra! TV is now also reporting that Xtina and Jordy have split (Extra! claims the couple are officially divorcing). Where there’s smoke … there should come an official statement one way or the other. Stay tuned …

UPDATE 2: Dang! TMZ is now joining the party claiming they’ve confirmed the Xtina/Jordan split is true. All that’s left is for us to hear from the couple themselves. I suspect an official statement may come later today.

    I just read this and can’t tell if I should believe it or not considering it is us weekly. I really hope it’s not true because I love how in love they are or were.

  • Denise


  • dc

    TMZ has the story on their site too so maybe it is true..

  • Samantha

    If this one proves to be true I will sob my eyes out :( Please say it isn’t so!!

  • Mariah

    NO! Why?! Ughhhh

  • Jessica

    This “source” sure gets around. Trent, you’re usually right so what does your gut say?

  • bob

    Nooooooooooooo I wanted them to stay together…

  • Allie

    Well! That is sad, but that picture is kind of terrfifying!

  • Mr,.Gyllenhaal

    SO SAD IF TRUE!!!!

  • jadedkitten, E online, and Radar online have all confirmed this too.

  • SuzieB

    I have no doubt it’s true – and leaking it now while there’s other split stories out there so this won’t be such a big story makes sense to me. Also, is it just me or anyone else think she can do better? He just doesn’t do it for me…. But it’s sad nonetheless since they have their little boy together…

  • truthyisalways

    damn…well don’t forget Ben Harper and Laura Dern. It seems that Christina and Jordan did not betray or hurt each other (not that any split isn’t its own spesh hell). And Melissa Etheridge has given Tammy Lynn Michaels so little money she can’t feed their kids (and yes, I do believe this). What is the world coming to!

  • Jen

    He was the one thing I liked about her.
    @SuzieB, you are right about them leaking it now amidst the Corteney and David breakup, that’s a smart move to avoid so much attention.

  • nicole

    i hope its not true. i liked them together.
    but if it is, they were smart to put the news out there, with all these other couples breaking up not alot of spotlight will be on them. and there would probably be even less light on them if they can do it quitely & peacefully.

  • J to the Da

    It’s on People too. :-(

  • Jordan

    I don’t know why, but I’m really sad about this! I remember reading an article where Christina was just gushing about Jordan and how she didn’t think she would ever be able to find anyone that treated her this well until she met him. Aww, well, long-lasting marriages in Hollywood are a dime a dozen anyway. Very sad though.

  • krissy

    This is so sad! In interviews, it really seemed like she matured a lot after they got together. He gave her real self-confidence (not the kind that comes from attention, the kind that comes from being loved for who you are). Relationships evolve over time, and sometimes they do become more of friendships. No matter what, I hope they are happy. It is good to see that it doesn’t sound ugly and mean.

  • Holly

    Reuters is reporting she has “no comment.” how sad! =(

  • Britney

    Sad:( but I care more about what her plans are for Bionic..Has she just gave up??The CD is Great but you never here it.She has done nothing for her fans that have waited years for new music..I also don’t know what she ever saw in him.Love is Blind i guess.

  • roxster

    I cant believe this! Shes always gushing about him! If it IS true it’ll prob be the standard work/time apart because of her album and movie and having to promote them both. How comes its impossible to have a successful career and personal life?

  • nicole

    @Britney – well if this has been going on for the past few months…it could be why she not promoting alot…instead working on her personal life.

  • sc

    I agree @britney, I thinks there’s something going on there. I, for one loved her CD. And personally I always thought they would never work out, idk why.

  • Zsofi

    :( I can’t believe this. Everythings seemed so nice from the outside, i never thought they would end up like this. But man, this is showbizz, people have a different lifetstyle.

  • debho

    I just saw this on the news down here…looks like it’s true. Must be the week for splits eh. For some reason I’m never shocked to hear of splits…maybe I’m so jaded by celebs now that if they’re together more than five years I’m shocked. Wonder who’s next….Demi and Ashton?

  • krissy

    This sheds a new light on the delay of her tour.


    I KNEW IT! There was something DEFINITELY going on… I believe she wanted to go on tour but she was having marriage problems and then she did all of those HORRENDOUS performances while promoting her album and then she her album underperformed, her label probably talked to her, and it probably took its toll on her… Poor thing! : ( It’s so weird that the two are breaking up/going to break up… “Bionic” is an amazing album and I hope that someday it gets the recognition it fully deserves.

  • Suz

    I find this very very sad.. even though the Arquettes also have kids (kid?), the pictures I’ve seen today of Christina and her little one just make this all the more poignant. Marriage is hard!

  • This is actually a marriage that I cared about. I like Christina. I guess it’s time for me to make my move.
