Like celebrity deaths, celebrity splits seem to come in threes. First it was Ben Harper and Laura Dern, then Courteney Cox and David Arquette, and now it’s Christina Aguilera and her husband Jordan Bratman. According to Us Weekly, Christina and Jordan have been separated for “a few months” and are living apart as we speak. This could be the reason Christina has been looking like ten kinds of hell lately – she’s been dealing with marriage sh-t. Or it could be that she needs to break up with her stylist and makeup artist too.
Singer Christina Aguilera is going solo. Though the pop star, 29, told UsMagaizne.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.”

Honestly, I find this breakup to be the saddest and least expected of the trilogy. Cox and Arquette I was expecting. Dern and Harper I didn’t care about. But Christina and Jordan really did seem close, and like they were solid. I thought Christina had found a low-key guy who would support her no matter what happened. And they have that baby too! Oh, well. Another bites the dust.
