Earlier this week we saw a curious photo of newly single Christina Aguilera exiting a hotel here in SoCal hand-in-hand with her male … friend … Matthew Rutler. Today we get to see a couple photos of the pair holding hands again as they made their way out of the gay bar The Abbey in West Hollywood, CA late Wednesday night … behold:
HMMMMM. It would appear that Xtina and Matt are spending quite a bit of time together these days … but are they really romantically involved as all the hand-holding implies or what. I’m hearing that Mr. Rutler here is quite the womanizer so he sounds like a bad boy to me … but mebbe that’s exactly what Xtina is lookin’ for these days? It’s also possible that Matt, a guy who Xtina met on the set of Burlesque, is just a well orchestrated decoy to throw us off the scent of what’s really going on in Xtina‘s private world … a beard, perhaps. I find it interesting that the couple decided to hang out at The Abbey, which is a well known and very well attended gay bar in West Hollywood. Whatever is going on between these two, it looks like they are having fun together (especially since Xtina looks like she’s all funned out in these photos). I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what becomes of these new … friends.
