On Friday we got to see a couple photos of the newly single Christina Aguilera doing a bit of hand-holdin’ with her new man friend Matthew Rutler as the pair tried to make a sneaky exit from The Abbey bar in West Hollywood, CA last week. Today we learn that Xtina and Matt have packed up their shizz and made their way to NYC to do a bit of hand-holdin’ there over the weekend. HMMM … traveling together, already?
Christina Aguilera and her new man embarked on another romantic date last night … Matthew D Rutler walked hand in hand with the 29-year-old singer around New York City … The Dirrty singer obviously has a thing for tall lanky brunettes with facial hair and has already fallen head over heels for the production assistant. Matthew took Christina for a romantic dinner at the Corner Deli before heading to the Boom Boom Room, where they partied until 3am. But Christina might have had to pick up the bill, as a source recently told Star magazine that Rutler is ‘broke’. ‘Matt used to live in a crummy apartment with room-mates. Now he’s at her Beverly Hills mansion every night. He’s in heaven!’, the source said. The pair, who met on the set of Burlesque earlier in the year, have been reportedly dating since September, despite only filing for divorce from record producer Jordan Bratman in October.
You know, I’m not entirely convinced that these two are an actual couple … but it’s very clear that they want the world to think that they are romantically involved. I’ve heard from very reliable sources that Matt isn’t really her “type” (if you get what I’m saying) and that she is parading him around as if the two are involved to throw people off the scent of what is really going on with her. Whether that is true or not, it seems that Xtina is really fine with people knowing that she and Matt are hanging out right now. I guess we’ll have to see if anything substantial grows out of this new relationship or … whatever.
