These are new photos of Christina Aguilera entering a Beverly Hills hotel yesterday. She looks pretty good, right? This is maybe the best she’s looked in months. She’s not wearing five pounds of makeup (but still, she’s wearing a lot), and her hair looks almost normal. Anyway, the rumor going around is that Christina is staying at a hotel because Jordan Bratman, her estranged and soon to be ex-husband, is flat-out refusing to move out of the mansion they shared. Apparently, things “have gotten tense” and Christina is “living out of a suitcase.” Living out of a suitcase agrees with her, that’s all I say.
Meanwhile, one of the main reasons for the split keeps rearing up in report after report – that Christina loves the ladies in general, and that she’s having a sexual relationship with Samantha Ronson specifically. Last week, a paparazzo got a photo of Sam leaving Christina’s house late one night (photo here), and Christina seems to be trying to tamp down the gossip about her lesbianism (or bisexuality):
Christina Aguilera has been leaning on gal pal Samantha Ronson for support in the wake of her crumbling marriage and RadarOnline.com has the photo of Ronson’s late-night visit to the singer’s home.
“They’ve known each other forever and they’re good friends,” a source close to Aguilera told RadarOnline.com of her relationship with the famous Hollywood deejay who has been the on-again, off-again girlfriend of Lindsay Lohan. According to several sources, Aguilera grew closer to Ronson as her marriage fell apart, eventually leading her soon-to-be-ex-husband Jordan Bratman feeling unwanted.
Ronson was photographed leaving the pop superstar’s Beverly Hills home late on the night of October 12, after spending seven hours comforting Aguilera.
“Samantha was also in Mexico with Christina for Nicole’s [Richie] bachelorette party,” the source told RadarOnline.com.
A close friend of Christina’s downplayed the relationship, “Christina and Sam are good friends and Christina has a ton of gay friends, there’s nothing more to it than that.”
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, this isn’t the first time Christina has turned to a woman. According to a source Christina has approached women while at gay bars in Los Angeles. One woman who was approached told RadarOnline.com that Christina sent over her bodyguard to see if she was interested. When the woman, who didn’t want her name used, looked over, Christina waved and smiled.
“The bodyguard told me it was an understanding within their marriage and that she brings girls home and Jordan’s okay with it,” said the woman who was approached by the Dirrty singer while at The Abbey. “I met Christina in the bathroom and she told me she liked to play with girls… I ended up not pursuing anything with it because the situation just seemed so weird to me, but Christina was definitely looking to hook up.”
Aguilera has been open about her affection for the ladies telling Out magazine in May, “My husband knows that I get into girls. I think it’s fun to be open and play.”
After nearly five years of marriage Aguilera, 29, filed for divorce on October 14 from her husband Bratman, 33, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Aguilera asked for joint legal and physical custody of their two-year-old son Max and for any spousal support to be terminated.
“My understanding was that Jordan wasn’t involved when she brought girls home,” a source said.
Are you feeling any sympathy for Christina? Eh. I feel it a little bit, even though I think she was the one to instigate the divorce. Who knows, though. Maybe Jordan is a piece of work too. I feel a begrudging respect for him for not moving out of their house. My guess is that there’s more sh-t that will come out in the coming months, and most of it is going to be bad for Christina.
