Christina Aguilera & Matt Rutler got engaged after more than 3 years together


Matt Rutler was basically Christina Aguilera’s jumpoff after she split up with her then-husband Jordan Bratman in 2010. Which means that Christina and Rutler have been together for more than three years. He was with her through those awkward clown-makeup years and he was with her that time she peed a little at a funeral. He was with her through dual arrests. He was with her that time she passed out drunk on Jeremy Renner’s bed. He was with her through the bright-orange years. He was with her through thick and thin. And now he’s going to be the new Mr. Aguilera. Christina posted the photo below on her Instagram, writing: “He asked and I said…”

That ring is… different. It doesn’t really look like an engagement ring, right? It looks like a diamond “fashion ring” for your left hand. But sure, if it’s an engagement ring, then so be it. I actually sort of forgot that Christina and Matt were still together, quite honestly. Christina went through a stage when Rutler was her “escort” to all of the assorted bars in Hollywood, and there were always plenty of photos of them out and about, stumbling around. But then Christina got cleaned up (I guess) and now she’s ready to get married. Okay. I would roll my eyes and say that there’s no future except that it seems like Matt is quite happy to be Christina’s quiet, unassuming boyfriend and now he’ll be her quiet, unassuming husband. Why not?

Here’s a crazy thought: Christina got engaged to Matt before J.Lo got engaged to Casper Smart. WHOA.

    What was she arrested for? Her hands look disgusting from her fake tan.

  2. Heather says:

    I don’t think she peed at the funeral, I think it was just vag sweat and spray on.

    Not sure which is grosser though.

    • Leila in wunderland says:

      It could have been pee- Fergie once peed on herself during a concert. She couldn’t just stop the concert and go to a bathroom. Christina was giving a speech and a performance at Etta James funeral. She could have leaked because she couldn’t just go to the bathroom at that time.

      Or it could have been a mixture of sweat and her tan stuff. I wouldn’t know, because I don’t tan.

    • Sullivan says:

      Good Gawd, how did I miss all of this? Aguillera has never been on my radar, but arrests, incontinence (or vag sweat 😳) at a funeral, crashing parties & then passing-out?????

      Random thought: I’ll bet she wears all that make-up as a mask that she can hide behind.

    • Lex says:

      Hhaha if it’s REALLY hot/humid I sometimes get little lines of sweat running down the back of my legs…
      That’s what it looked like to me.
      It was funny coloured from her tan.

  3. Miss Melissa says:

    He resembles her ex. A lot.

    • idk says:

      I was thinking that too. She certainly has a type. Her ex was also quiet and unassuming and has a lot of the same physical features as this guy does. Perhaps she loves to have all the power in a relationship. She’s never dated anyone really famous. At least we know she’s not in it for money. I do see her getting pregnant quickly after marriage. I hope she gets a pre-nup, because EVERYONE should.

      • ToodySezHey says:

        Yeah, she definitely has a type. Dark haird white guys who look somewhat ethnic, scruffy, with facial hair who are of middling height.

        He really does look like the good looking version of her ex, minus the rattish teeth.

        And I agree with you IDK, Xtina isnt getting flack for dating a no name guy like Britney did, namely because :

        1) Xtina isnt at the height of her career like Britney was with KFed
        2) She has never dated a high profile celeb, while Britney was a year past her and Justin breaking up and to go from JT to Kfed was like *record scratch*

        3) Xtina has never dated anyone high profile for her men to be compared against and nobody knew who the hell her ex was so, its her MO.

        What I wonder is, whatever happened to the band that dude was in? Or is being Xtina’s man his full time job now?

      • Leah says:

        And it was just reported she’s pregnant lol.

    • kristiner says:


      She’s always with fugly “producers”

      Like Jordan Bratman. Exactly who and what song has he ‘produced”???

  4. Patricia says:

    He just seems like a supportive guy who is happy to let her have the spotlight. That’s perfect for her. Good luck to them, he certainly has seen her though a lot and stood by her through it. Maybe this marriage will do well.

  5. Zbornak Syndrome says:

    An engagement ring can be whatever the heck you want it to be. Americans have been sold the ridiculous notion of diamonds only. Actually the whole idea of engagement rings is kind of stupid in this day and age. My husband, (German born) hardly knows anyone that he grew up with that wears them. Or if they have them, the most anyone spend on them is $500- $1000. Our wedding culture is over the top ridiculous, kinda like our divorce rates. What does the guy get for engagement? Best of luck to them.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I’m sure she knows an engagement ring doesn’t have to be a diamond. She’s just saying it looks more like what used to be called a “cocktail ring” with a tiny stone in the middle and lots of filigree and fuss around it. I agree with her. If that’s what they want, fine.

      What does the guy get for an engagement? He gets to marry you!

      I think engagement rings are sweet, but I agree with you that our wedding culture is out of control, and people spend way too much money on one day when it could be perfectly nice and meaningful without most of the hoopla.

    • Karolina says:

      THIS. I am astonished what those US celebs and even everyday people spend on something stupid like engagement rings. It is definitely not a thing where I am from, here you get something super simple and call it a day. Like, some guys even take a loan just to pay for the ring? – ridiculous.

    • Aisha says:

      I agree with all of your points but just wanted to mention (from the perspective of a jeweller) that it’s so sad to see ruby or sapphire engagement rings come in for repair/resize and the stones had been worn down, the edges of the facets are dull and to keep them looking good they have to be repolished by a gemcutter over and over because they’re just nowhere near as durable as diamonds and can’t be worn on a ring everyday without being (often badly) damaged. Diamonds, however can be bashed, scraped or set on fire, etc. They’re pretty much indestructible. Having seen what engagement rings go through, I don’t know why anyone bothers, might as well buy a $5000 ring, set it on a table and hit it with a hammer because that’s the condition a ring will end up in if you wear it every day, no matter how careful you are.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      It’s how we Americans state what is ours and attracts those that like to test the bond of their relationship by what is now known as the term ‘home-wrecking’.

    That funeral, though hotly debated, was what happens when no knickers (and you just know she wears no knickers to a funeral so she can be at the ready for mid-hangover, morning groping in the limo afterward) and the beginning or end of a period happen. I have had all manner of a spray tan dripping off of me, I have seen sweaty vag, I have seen a case of laugh-induced dribble. Spray tan does not, even at its darkest come close to matching the red/brown hue of those drops. And seeing as she had a c-section I highly doubt she had an incontinence issue that let out a couple of drops whilst singing. And you know what- that’s what I LOVE about her. She is such a shameless mess! I just cannot bring myself not to dislike her like I do other celebs, even though I feel bad for her public embarrassment. Don’t ever change.

  7. Meggin says:

    She obviously paid for that ring lol

  8. AlmondJoy says:

    Not a fan of the ring, it’s much to gaudy. But, gaudy IS her style so I’m sure she loves it.

    She seems to be doing much better these days. Im happy for her!

  9. Nerd Alert says:

    Awww I always root for her. She was always the underdog vs. Britney. Good for her. I like that they had a reasonable length courtship before getting engaged. I can’t fathom agreeing to marry someone after only a year together.

  10. ToodySezHey says:

    Well, it looks like Christina is finally marrying her K-Fed.

    Sigh, didnt she learn anything from watching Britney slide down hill?

    I swear, why does it seem lately that celeb women are just marrying/having kids with random dudes, women who should on paper be able to do better.

    I mean, Jessica Simpson, J-Lo, Julia Roberts, Christina Aguilera, heck Ill even throw in Tori Spelling.

    Random dudes are #winning.

    • QQ says:

      THIS AS FUCK!!

      i think tho These Randos No Work types are a direct results of their egos and the height of their money (not in Tori’s case… She took whatever was having her) Think about it: They are rich beyond belief, and/or top pf their field and have these gigantic egos so, who do they end up with when George Clooney is on his nth cocktail waitress and Harvey Weinstein looks like a pregnant toad? And Pro Athletes are gonna pro Athlete? a Lesser More “good looking” dude or a guy that has Way less than them and zero ego about being less moneyed, needing to give adulation etc, and also in a way a guy they can control or at least be sure is not gonna be cavorting with models and whatnot…. Sure you end up having to pay for everything and buying your ring yourself but fronting like you didnt… But thems the breaks!

      • ToodySezHey says:

        I suppose so, as my friend puts it, I guess there can only be one ego in the relationship.

        It just chaps my hyde a little bit. And shyt, the dude being a lesser is no guarantee of fidelity. When Kev and Britney were ending I remember reading allegations of vegas trips to strip clubs and whatnot on kevin’s part. But yeah, odds are the random will keep in line better because yeah they could fool around, but as KFed found out, the Ferrari can be repo’d and the Black cards cutoff mighty quick.

        As for Tori Spelling, remember, at the time she met Dean, she was married or at least engaged to someone her parents liked. Then she met Dean, busted up with her SO, he divorced the wife, they got together and then to her shock, her dad had cut her out the will so Dean couldnt get to that money. One wonders if the father warned her to get rid of Dean or else, I dont know that she chooses Dean over that Spelling money, lol.

      • Dommy Dearest says:


        She should have just married the guy her dad liked and kept Dean as a side piece. Cause dat money.

  11. Tiffany says:

    Her first husband started as quiet and unassuming, and still is after all these years. Let’s see if the current one stays that way.

  12. Leila in wunderland says:

    On other sites, people were so worked up and bitter over the fact that she’s marrying a guy who isn’t rich, so he couldn’t have paid for the ring and the relationship is a failure because he’s not a rich guy, and he’s not the provider for Christina and her son. I see this happen a lot when a rich, famous woman gets with a guy who isn’t. I wish people would finally get used the fact that the man does not always have to be the main provider for the woman and her child.

    I’m a little surprised that she’s marrying him. I guess I shouldn’t be since they’ve been dating for almost 3 years and living together. But originally when she started dating him about a month after she and Jordan filed for divorce, I had assumed that Matt was just a rebound guy who Christina was using to rub in Jordan’s face, and that her relationship with Matt would be over quickly. Plus, when she was with Jordan, she seemed more into him because she talked about him and their love way more than she has talked about this guy. But maybe she’s just more private about this relationship, at this point in her life. I hope it all works out well for them.

  13. anon says:

    Christina really goes for semi-unattractive men. Oh well, looks definitely are NOT everything.

  14. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Well good for her, I guess?

  15. Rockymtnprincess says:

    I’m rooting for her/them she seems like she may be one of the child stars that actually makes it out alive and not completely insane. I doubt he is paying any bills but he has worked on movies that have come out over the past three years so he isn’t a mooch.

  16. I wish her a lot of luck and hope the this is a beautiful marriage filled with happiness and meaning for her. I’m not a hater :) Celebs deserve happiness too.
