Yesterday we got a sneak preview of Christina Aguilera’s new interview with People magazine wherein she opens up, again, about her split from hubby Jordan Bratman. As you may recall, in the quotes we read yesterday, Xtina confirmed (all too quickly, IMHO) that she is currently dating Matthew Rutler. Today we get to read a few more comments from Xtina’s new People interview, comments which focus more on the demise of her marriage to Jordy:
Christina Aguilera remembers vividly how she felt as she signed the papers in her divorce from music exec Jordan Bratman. “Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it,” the Burlesque star, 29, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. “I really didn’t want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up.” The decision to end her marriage of five years was not easy for Aguilera, but she strongly felt she had to do what she thought best for her and Jordan’s 2-year-old son. “When you’re unhappy in your marriage, your children are the ones who suffer,” says the Grammy-winning pop singer, whose own parents’ tumultuous relationship led to divorce when she was 7. “That’s the last thing I wanted for my son.”
The full text of Xtina’s interview with People magazine, which will undoubtedly include more about her new relationship with Matthew, will be available in this week’s issue of the mag on newsstands tomorrow. I still think it’s a bad idea to rebound so publicly with a new relationship so soon after filing for divorce but every couple is different and every situation is different. I still have my suspicions about what is really going on with Xtina and her private life but in the end, I only wish her all the happiness in the world.
