Christina Aguilera and her boyfriend Matthew Rutler was arrested in the wee hours on Tuesday morning. The police pulled the duo over when they noticed their car driving erratically.
Christina Aguilera was arrested for public intoxication but Matthew? He was busted for a much more serious crime, driving under the influence. Christina was released after she sobered up a bit, but Matthew – at this time – is still in jail with a $30,000 bail. So who is this Matthew Rutler?
Matthew and Christina met while he was working as a production assistant on the set of her film Burlesque. At the time Christina was still with her husband Jason Bratman, and there is speculation that she began a relationship with Matthew before she and Jason ended theirs. Matthew has also worked on the films “Grown Ups,” “The Town,” and “The Social Network.” Matthew is 24-years-old, five years younger than Christina.
Matthew also is a guitarist in the Nate Mott Band but recently hasn’t played with the band due to – as the band site said – “for personal reasons.”
Let’s hope that this arrest forces both Matthew and Christina into straightening up, at least for the sake of Christina’s son Max. Do you think Matthew might be too young and wild for Christina for this time in her life?
