Christina Aguilera & Matthew Rutler Go Bar-Hopping Together


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 … friendMatthew 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.

    It’s too obvious, ESPECIALLY for a woman whose divorce isn’t finalized. I feel like she’s posing for these hand holding photos, but I can only guess as to why.

  • Vicky

    I doubt she’s “posing” for these pictures she’s probably just out having fun and doesn’t give a crap who sees or what anyone thinks.

    i dunno…i dont find hand holding to mean much…like i said quite the hand holder myself…i hold my friends hands – male or female- all the time..more so when im walking through a group.
    the girl looks tired though….like all the promo is catching up to her…she looks like she could use a good 24 hrs of the sleep!

  • Alicia

    I feel like a celebrity of her level knows what she’s doing when hand holding in front of photographers. She’s been so private for so long, and now all of a sudden we’re supposed to believe she doesn’t care about photographers?

  • Alicia

    For you and me, hand holding doesn’t mean anything. But when you’re famous it’s a whole ‘nother thing, and celebrities know that.

  • gayana

    theyre promoting burlesque…

    Sorry, but the pic on the right kinda reminds me of snooki. Just sayin’!

    According to Lindsay Lohan’s friends it seems that Xtina is more interested in Samantha Ronson. Check Twitter.

    It is pretty obvious that she’s using this guy to cover the rumors (if you check back all the news and rumors… timing is perfect).

    Oh… and LiLo is pissed off. Just sayin’.
