A couple of weeks ago we saw a photo of newly single Christina Aguilera in the close company of a new male friend named Matthew Rutler who is rumored to be her new romantic interest. It was reported that the couple had gone on a double date with friends Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. Over the weekend, Xtina and Matt were spotted coming out of a hotel (!!!) holding hands (!!!). Might this be the first true sign that the couple are romantically involved?
To be honest, I sincerely hope that the couple are really just friends … after all, friends hold hands, right? It just seems way too soon for Xtina to be getting romantically involved with anyone. While it is widely believed that her marriage to Jordan Bratman was over ages ago, she only just filed for divorce only about a month ago. It’s entirely possible that Matt is just providing a supportive shoulder for Xtina to cry on … cuz he’s clearly offering her a warm hand to hold on to. It remains to be seen what other body parts Matt is making available to Xtina but if something is really going on between these two, we’re bound to find out sooner or later.
