Christina Aguilera Busted!


TMZ is reporting that Christina Aguilera and her new boyfriend Matthew Rutler were arrested in West Hollywood, CA early this morning both for being drunk. Xtina was busted on a misdemeanor of public intoxication while Matt was busted on the seemingly more serious charge of drunk driving. Dang!

Christina Aguilera was arrested early this morning along with her boyfriend in West Hollywood, TMZ has learned. Christina was popped for public intoxication and her boyfriend was arrested for driving under the influence. Aguilera was arrested at 2:45 AM and booked at the West Hollywood Sheriff’s substation on a misdemeanor charge. On the booking report, Aguilera was listed at 5’2″ and 100 pounds. Aguilera’s 25-year-old boyfriend Matthew Rutler was also arrested last night at the same time for a misdemeanor offense. According to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, Rutler’s bail was set at $30,000. Law enforcement sources tell us Aguilera appeared to be “extremely intoxicated” and was “unable to take care of herself.” However, the source adds, “If the driver had NOT been arrested for DUI, [Christina] would have never been in trouble.” Sources close to Xtina tell us they have been trying to get the singer into a rehab program for weeks.

Oh snap! It looks like Xtina is serious about having a downfall of her own. Haven’t we been hearing for weeks about her hard partying and out of control drinking? Remember that story in January about Xtina passing out drunk in Jeremy Renner’s bed at his birthday party? Of course, her people denied that any such thing happened but … c’mon. Homegirl has been stumbling out of bars drunk for a while now. She has managed to stay out of trubs and, as far as I know, this is her first arrest. But … from what I’ve been hearing, Xtina has been sinking more and more into unhealthy behavior … ever since she hooked up with Rutler who, if this report is to be believed, can really be blamed for her arrest. It remains to be seen if this is just a bump in the road or if it’s a sign of the new and degrading Xtina Aguilera.

    :O I’m sorry, what??? Wow…

  • Elkay

    Girl better watch herself or little Max is going to be taken away, or, at least, she won’t be seeing as much of him. Isn’t this similar to Britney after her divorce from K-Fed?

  • Meghan

    OY!! These celebrities have got to learn to keep it together.

  • cutitout

    I am a die hard fan and I have never liked this guy. Tjis is not that bad for Christina, She did the right thing by not driving drunk herself but Unfortunately, her designated driver apparently did not understand what that means.


    I don’t think she’s ready for rehab just yet, maybe therapy to get over what ever destroyed her marriage in a healthy way. Just because you drink too much does not make you an alchoholic and theres no reason to label herself in that way uneccessarily. Drowning your self in booze and a boy-toy will lead to a certain downfall. She’s got plenty of good years left, she just needs to get it together.

    • CL

      THis is how I feel. These problems didnt really rise up til her split. Shes not taking it well and handling her sadness right. Its obvious she’s trying to drown it away.

  • Mr. Gyllenhaal

    Okay she has more money than I can dream of and she lets her boyfriend drive her home DRUNK when she has a child?? I understand she was probably wasted too but set up the DD before you go out!! Jackass!!!!!!! Drink all you want but be responsible!

    • lolo

      Seriously!! Just hire a damn driver to drive your drunk ass around all day and night, at LEAST. (Or, ya know, stop being such a mess…)

    • krissy

      Her bf was probably the designated driver. He only blew a .09, which is only .01 over the limit. Yes, it was a bad move, but it isn’t as if he was completely wasted.

  • laurennc

    The only thing thats shocking to me is that something like this hasn’t happened sooner with her. She obviously has a drinking problem. I also find it very irresponsible that she would get into the car with a drunk person driving when she has a son. They knew that night when they went out they were going to be drinking so she should have had a driver. I don’t think it will be long before Jordan goes to court for full custody of Max. I wouldn’t want my child to be around people who are irresponsible enough to drink and drive.

  • jj

    i remember before during meltdown of britney all christina stans insulted britney. they said that christina is much better and a classy woman with a loving husband. look NOW WHAT HAPPENED? christina is following britney’s meltdown

  • titiemuncher

    Wow, she obviously is looking for a comeback like Britney Spears so what better way to set the stage then acting this way?? Have everyone concerned think you fail at life and your career, and then “comeback better than ever” she wants CD sales but Britney has already done that… she could have found a more classy way to do it, like get SICK then recover, everyone would be rooting for her, this is so predictable…

  • perdiz

    with all that money you would think she could call a cab….

  • Holly

    ugh… I’m a die hard fan as well and this is just so sad… it’s like watching britney all over again. Jordan Bratman, please come back! =/

    • Holly

      And you have to wonder how bad it really is… b/c if the girl could come out the Stripped era (a time that she’s admitted to heavy partying, just not being publicized) w/o anyone noticing, how is it that the adult xtina cannot handle this???

  • truthyisalways

    Wonder what the story behind the story is. Was Jordan Bratman the glue that held her together? Did her Bionic’s bad reception fail to reassure her of her talent? Is she overwhelmed with guilt that she ended her marriage? Does she even like boys in the first place?

  • MM

    Call me cynical but this seems so obviously staged to me. Her mugshot is practically a magazine cover! Ridiculous. If girlfriend thinks she is going to out-trainwreck Britney and have that kind of comeback, she is out of her mind.

    Get better advice Christina and please stop trying so hard!

    • Jessica

      mugshot? Are you talking about the picture trent posted? Because that IS from a magazine back in 1999

    • @Jessica — Correct, this is NOT a mug shot. It’s just a photo for use until/unless a mug shot is released.

    • Holly

      I don’t think her mugshot was released yet… the pic above is ooooold

    • grace

      no way that’s the mugshot. that photo looks like its from 1999.

    • MM

      Ha ha – OMG thank you for clearing that up! I was like, is this for real??

      Even still – think the whole thing is a cry for attention at the very best, a totally desperate attempt to be “relevant” to gossip magazines at worst.

  • vVv

    come on xtina u can be aressted everyday but u wont be as poplar as britney or gaga…

    • Xadax

      Whateva hater, they don’t even have half of what Xtina could do.

  • katherine

    I don’t get it. If I go out drinking, I take a cab. They are affordable to regular janes like me, so I’m sure xtina can cough up the cash to even give the driver a big tip. That, or hire a driver? OR (I know this sounds crazy) don’t drink so much!

    Are there no cabs in Hollywood or something? Is that why there are so many DUIs?

  • rOXy

    Jordan was too good for her. He was the only credibility she had. She was respected when she was with him. What a sad waste of a mother.

  • Kris

    100 pounds?! There is no way!

    • Janaegal

      ahahah, i was wondering who would be the first person to comment on that!!

    • Jax

      @Kris I was thinking the same thing. As serious as this is, what shocked me most, was her weight listed at 100 lbs. I’m 5’2″ and 120 lbs. NO way is Christina 100 lbs.

      Anywho, this is all very sad. She may not be handling divorce and life well at the moment, but I wish her well.

    • Alex

      Hah, that was my first thought to. I’m 5’2″ and 120, and I was like, there is no way Christina weighs less than me!

      Girls life seems to be falling apart. Hope she can keep it together–at least for her son. :( Her new man does not seem to be good for her.

    • gayana

      I met christina on her tour and took a picture with her and she is really small even compring to me. i am 5’2 and i am 102 pounds, and xtina is even smaller in the waste so ya she is around 100 pounds. dont hate))

    • Janaegal

      there’s a big difference between the christina that was touring and in shape and this hot mess….I’m not saying she’s fat, cause she’s not, i’m just saying there is no way in hell she’s 100 lbs as of lately.

      that being said, who doesn’t lie on their drivers license. I still proudly (and completely dishonestly) give my high school weight when asked. ;)

  • Errin

    For all the times I said “You never hear anything about Christina Aguilera” Touche world…

    • Kammie


  • Jessica

    Bail was apparently $5000 not $30000 and christina left the police station around 730 this morning.

  • MM

    Seriously-the Burlesque DVD came out today? Come on Christina – that is just way too obvious!

  • nicole

    this guy is like a cancer to her. since shes been with him, shes been falling. someone needs to point that out to her asap.
    but really say this is staged? why put herself through all this? not everyone celeb can come back from these kind of things, its not worth risk..and seeing as she has a son, it just doesnt make sense.
    i think 2010 was just a rough year, and she needs to take a step back, dump matt, get some therapy and work through issues.
    im not gunna bash her on what kind of mother she is, cause to me, she always looks her happiest/best when max is around, and hopefully she’ll work through her issues before things get really out of hand and ruin it.

    • Jessica

      Thank you for saying that. To say that she staged this and was willing to put other peoples lives in danger in order to have a “comeback” like britney is extremely ignorant.

      Britney was always more well liked than christina, people felt bad for her because she obviously has some type of mental disorder and her ex kfed was a leech…ergo her comeback was a success. The same probably wouldn’t happen for chrissy if only because, as I said, the public for the most part dislikes. Which is unfortunate because I think she’s actually a really sweet person.

    • gayana

      thank YOU for saying that!
      Britney is a mentally challenged person that people put a lot of money into.

      Christina is a talent. And just like in her high-school when genie ina bottle came out all her classmates were hating on her caz they were jelous.. same happens now. to some reason people just cannot handle true talent and tend to hate on her. weird.

  • Cupcake

    I like what Nicole said – well put. I will always be an X-Tina fan for life! And ppl need to stop bashing her and comparing her to Britney, Gaga, etc. She obviously is hurting so instead of kicking her while she’s down why not give her love & support? Like you would a loved one &/or a friend? She will come through, she’s smart & has a lot to live for. She’s just going through a hard time like we all have at one point in our lives. *She has my support*

    • lilly

      because while others were down she was the one to kick dirt in their face…she could never shut her mouth and i dont have any sympathy for her…in my book its just a too bad so sad moment. moving on!

  • jamie-o

    eh. i can’t help think back to the Page 6 blind item a month or so ago, about a pop star staging a public fall from grace so she could have a comeback and be loved better than before, a-la-britney.

    sit back and enjoy the show, folks.

    • Janelle

      I read that , too…I was wondering if anyone else saw that lol

  • Xadax

    Like she gives a damn to the whole Gaga-Perez thing, Britney rivalry, flubbing the National Anthem or even falling off at the Grammys. This is about JORDAN BRATMAN y’all! I think she needs him right now – screw Rutler & his $30,000 bail! I want Aguilera-Bratman back!

    • dave

      AMEN! Jordan to the rescue please!!!!!!!

    • Xadax

      At least it wasn’t a crime – it was for her safety. Rutler’s to blame!

  • krissy

    I think that it is REALLY tacky of people to say that this was planned. She just went through a divorce of a man she has been in love with for years! She is human, folks. Divorce is one of the most stressful, painful things a person can experience.

    I don’t think rehab is the answer, because IMO that is for people who are alcoholics. From my limited perspective, it seems as if she is just going through a rough period in her life. Therapy would be the best thing for her, IMO.

  • Kammie

    My first thought was how pretty she looks in that pic Trent posted lol.

    I was always a Britney girl growing up, but I agree with what Nicole and the others are saying, I don’t think she’s gone and turned into a raging alcoholic. Getting divorced is a HUGE deal, even though most of the world has become jaded by how often it happens. Christina has to be hurting, she’s just not dealing with it in a healthy way right now, and having the wrong influences around you doesn’t help, especially when you’re in the spotlight like she is. To say she’s doing this to stage a “comeback” is stupid, Christina has always been a pretty smart business woman, she’s not foolish enough to risk her reputation like this.

    • jamie-o

      the point is that she IS a pretty smart business woman, not foolish enough to risk her reputation like this… without a reason. a comeback is a reason.

      i might be giving her more credit than you are.

  • gayana

    its crazy how when britney was going through her breakdown with the video if her being on drugs, smoking weed and being literally retarted… people were cheering for her eventhough it was her parents taking care of her sons…

    now that christina happens to be busted by cops (caz some idiot that she trusted has no brain to call a cab) you all are hating on her that shes a trainwreck and shes a terrible mom and all that… so biased and so unfair.

    • not to mention shaving her head..

      finally a person who shares my opinion. people over-look crazy britney now cause he’s “semi” re-established herself with a new album coming out & probably a world tour. but xtina is not nearly as bad as britney…

  • Mariah


  • tracy

    100 pounds my ass! That is such a lie. And she is becoming quite a lush.

  • I am really glad that no one had cameras pointed at me after the collapse of my 15 year marriage 11 years ago…

  • jj

    @gayana her classmates werent jealous of christina. they are mad because christina has a huge ego. she thinks she is the best in this world! yeah, christina got a great voice but that is all.

  • sparklecow

    Wow what a great mother. This woman is a piece of garbage and Jordan should get full custody.

    • nicole

      kinda harsh no? the girl is clearly going through something that she doesnt know how to deal with, and has a shitty influence beside her.

    • Candace

      Your a judgemental ass who I assume never makes mistakes.
      She is a singer not a nun. Let us not get carried away with our opinion
      of someone we don’t even really know. Your opinion is only that.

  • i know if i was going through a divorce & a child in the mix i would drink, as much as possible! that doesn’t make it right tho.

    i’m a fan of xtina(also britney, strange i know?) & always will be & i hope she can get her shit together.. starting by dumping his money grabbing ass!

  • please help with school project thaaank you :)

  • Sanchez

    When you’re a parent I think you should hold yourself to a higher standard and buck up for the sake of your kids. Fortunately for me I don’t have any and maybe that’s easier said than done but stilllllllllll.

    • Candace

      She did not have her son in the car….
      Poeple are still they are when they have kids, You still make mistakes and it does not mean you don’t love you children.Let’s give her a chance to rally.

  • carma

    Sounds and looks like a midlife crisis… about 20 years too early.
