It’s been a tough year for Christina Aguilera, and it’s only March 1st three months in! She had been criticized for her weight gain, has been on several bump watch alerts, is in the process of a divorce, totally botched the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, tripped at the Grammy’s and now she’s really starting to hit bottom, she was arrested. And there were apparently warning signs that Xtina was spiraling downward.
It’s been reported that her friends have been trying to get her into rehab for weeks. In Touch had a report that said “Aguilera’s friends are encouraging her to get help for a drinking problem… Christina has always been a party girl, but ever since splitting from her husband, Jordan Bratman, she seems to be partying and carousing more than ever.” And since she has a young son at home, it’s even more important that she gets the help she needs.
As for her arrest, fortunately she didn’t do anything too bad, she was only arrested for public drunkenness while her boyfriend Matthew Rutler was busted for driving under the influence. It all went down on Monday night when the police noticed a car driving erratically. When they pulled the car over at around 2:45 AM they found an “extremely intoxicated” Aguilera. She was booked, finger printed and kept in a cell for observation and was released this morning.
Let’s hope she gets the help she needs, not just for herself and her career but for her young son.
