It’s been well-documented that Christina Aguilera‘s year has been far from plain-sailing; and if new reports are to be believed, things are set to become even rockier for the singer. Her five year old marriage to music executive Jordan Bratman is said to be over.
Full story after the jump…
Via US Magazine:
Singer Christina Aguilera is going solo.
Though the pop star, 29, told UsMagazine.com less than a year ago that she felt “very blessed” in her union with music executive Jordan Bratman, 33, a source close to Aguilera tells Us the couple “have been separated for a few months.”
And though Aguilera and Bratman — who met in 2002 (he was a producer on one of her albums) and wed in 2005 — have not yet decided whether to divorce, the source reveals, “they are now living apart, and they will see how that goes.”
What went wrong?
“They were very much in love,” explains the insider. “But over the last six months, it became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife.”The source adds that Aguilera even “ proposed their August trip to Italy to rekindle their relationship, but it didn’t help.”
The duo remain united in their commitment, however, to son Max, 2.
“He is their main concern,” says the pal. Aguilera has even been bringing the tot to the studio while she wraps up the soundtrack for her November 24 musical, Burlesque.
“Christina is doing her best to be a great mom,” says the insider. “She has a lot to juggle, but she’s learning how to make it work and balance it all.”
Sad, if true.
Perhaps not the most apt of moments to say this, but I’m guessing her tumultuous year will inspire her creatively for her next project. For as much as ‘Bionic’ didn’t deserve to tank the way it did, lyrically she wasn’t really saying much of substance (something which usually sets her apart from the line-up of Pop pretenders).
