Christina Aguilera’s ex is still living in their house – with XTina and her new man

Christina and her new boyfriend, Matt Rutler

Here’s an amusing story from the print edition of US Weekly about how Christina Aguilera’s estranged husband, Jordan Bratman, is staying put in the couple’s mansion and refusing to move out. Christina announced her separation from Jordan in mid October of last year. She took up with her new boyfriend, a set assistant she met while filming Burlesque (while she was still married) a hot minute later. We heard in late October that Christina was staying in hotels because Bratman wouldn’t move out of their home, presumably because he wanted to be near their son Max, three. Fast forward three months later and Bratman is still at their family home, while Christina has moved her new boyfriend in to help her stagger to bed after their drunken nights out. I’m pretty sure that Christina still lives in the mansion that was shown on The Osbournes, as she purchased it from the family in 2007. That’s a big house but I don’t think it has two kitchens or anything.

A source tells Hot Stuff [US Weekly] that [Christina Aguilera], 30, and new boyfriend Matthew Rutler, 25, are living under the same roof with her ex, Jordan Bratman – because he refuses to move out! “It’s gotten really awkward,” the Aguilera pal says of life at the $11.5 million Beverly Hills mansion, where the exes look after their son, Max, 3. “Jordan won’t leave the house!” The singer is so distraught that she broke down while knocking back vodka sodas and venting about the situation at L.A.’s the Dime nightclub January 25. “She was drinking and crying uncontrollably, talking about Jordan and the house,” says a witness. “She was working herself into more and more of a state.” Adds another insider, “She strong and wants to be there for Max. But all this is very stressful for her.”

[From US Weekly, print edition, February 14, 2011]

Poor Christina. She cheated on her husband, moved her jump off into the house, and now her husband won’t leave! What’s a drunk rich girl to do? I know, she could sell the house (probably at a loss) and downsize – if the house is in her name, that is. There are probably some complicated legal issues that are keeping her from being able to kick Jordan out. She could rent another place nearby and move there with her son. I don’t know whose side I’m on in this whole mess, but I’m inclined to have some grudging respect for Bratman for staying put. (There are rumors that he abused Christina, and if that’s true it’s despicable. Sources say that never happened though.)

    Talk about AWKWARD!!

  2. brin says:

    She needs to move out, she has a son to think about.

  3. Jack says:

    she has no class!!
    having a boyfriend right after (and probably in her) marriage and to go with him to every public event..what kind of woman is she?

  4. Happymom says:

    He’s probably staying in the house because he’s worried about his son’s safety. She obviously has a drinking/drug problem and can’t be trusted with a small child.

  5. HEB says:

    Jordan needs to stay in that house–he’s the one taking care of their son!

    There’s no way he abused her. She got bored for two seconds and left. She’s going to regret it when that Matt guy leaves her in a few months.

  6. darlene says:

    Has anyone else ever thought that her breakup with Jordan was fake? That she did it for publicity and to be “hot” again?

  7. Salina says:

    She should leave the family home if she is the one who left the marriage.

  8. Jacq says:

    @Happymom – you said it! That was the first thought to cross my mind.
    I think that if Christina wants out of the marriage, etc. SHE should be the one to leave. Moving in your boyfriend of one minute is highly irresponsible. When he grows up, will Max watch the men (women?) parade in and out of mommy’s room from down the hall? Geez. If there was abuse, she should have taken that boy and got the hell out, which also leads me to doubt that claim. If she’s such a trifling drunk, Bratman should snatch the kid and peace-out. maybe that’s a battle he isn’t ready for.
    The only thing I DO know for sure at this point is that you can’t turn a ho into a housewife.

  9. malachais says:

    @Jack, ITA. “xtina” probably made an agreement with Bratman to contine living there so he can watch Max while she goes out partying/boozing. Sorry, but she just comes off that way. To smear your new jumpoff to your ex is despicable, no matter what the circumstances IMO. I wish she’d go away already, talented but self-absorbed twit.

  10. merry says:

    @HEB, I believe you’re probably right.
    It would seem like she got tired of being married and cheated.
    And those bruises she had that made people speculate about abuse could very easily derive from being a drunken mess. I had a friend who used to be drunk pretty consistently and she would stumble around until she actually did hit every single door/cabinet/thing at arm, hip and face level. It was nightmare to keep her still!

  11. Jaana says:

    I thinks her husband has been trying to keep her calm and stop drinking and she’s having none of that..she wants to party.

  12. JustBe says:

    I think the husband is between a rock and a hard place because I’m sure he wants custody of their son. If he left the home without the son, he might be accused of abandonment. If he left the home and took the son with him, he might be accused of preventing Xtina from having access to the child. It seems like his best option is to stay in the marital home with the child. She is not helping her case at all by bringing in a younger boyfriend who she only recently started dating. It might be extremely frustrating (and hurtful) to see Xtina gallivanting around the house with the jumpoff, but I don’t see a good alternative.

  13. becky says:

    @ merry
    u r right. i used to think alcohol bruised me until my friends told me i stumble into everything when im drunk. i used to think the alcohol was doing something to my veins!!!
    anyway, she has publicly praised jordan and specifically said how lucky she was to have found someone who treated her well after growing up in such abuse.

  14. Anna says:

    This made me LOL

  15. Hakura says:

    @JustBe (13)- I agree with your take on things.

    In many cases, the father’s rights can get trampled on during this time right after a marriage has ended, & no agreements have been put in place regarding custody & visitation. I don’t blame him for being afraid to leave the marital home, & the rights he has as a result of staying there.

    Christina isn’t doing herself any favors appearing drunk in public (repeatedly), & moving a new boyfriend she hasn’t been seeing for long into her home with her young child.

  16. merry says:

    @becky. Well, I think alcohol also does make your veins more fragile. That’s why when you bump into something, even if it’s a minor bump, the bruise gets huge. Anywho, some people seem to have better balance even when drunk; not my friend, for sure. And I suspect Xtina to be a major stumbler!

  17. Javagirl1 says:

    Lol @ merry and Becky

    Back in my drinking days, I used to think my bruises came from my liver having a hard time processing all the alcohol. But I would also manage to knock into everything in the room (I was told.) When the drinking stopped my bruises stopped -maybe it was a combination!

  18. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Did anyone else have better things to do with their time at the age of 25 than live with some random dame’s baby? I did.

  20. fabgrrl says:

    @JustBe – I concur as well. It is suprisingly hard (rightly or wrongly) to end a marriage when there are kids involved.

  21. ThatBoyLuke says:

    Sorry but she worked her ass of for that house, don’t act like you’d just hand over $11,500,000 to your ex because that’s a lie. Jordan isn’t peniless and she hasn’t said she would stop him seeing max so he should move out and as for Christina she may have some issues but she seems like a great mother to Max and is always talking about him so stop labelling her a bad mother just because she’s partying to much at night.

  22. Hautie says:

    Has either of them file for divorce? It doesn’t look like it.

    (Eva Longoria is already divorced and that breakup happen after this one.)

    And I would have hoped that Christina had a pre-nup and if she paid for the house. So she should have already him removed from the house. Legally.

    It looks to me that she is not forcing the divorce issue. She just told him to move out and he didn’t.

  23. your momma says:

    @ David she is not huge, you’ve just seen one too many airbrushed models to know what a normal size is.

  24. Jezi says:

    @ThatBoyLuke I’m sure she can easily sell the house and purchase a new one. She’s not poverty striken. A good mother puts her child’s needs above her own. Cheating on the father of the child and bringing the new boyfriend into their home isn’t exactly a smart move to make as a mother. Getting drunk on many occasions and one in particular where she woke up in a party host’s bed and was kicked out, not a very smart maternal move. I see rehab in 3…2…1.

  25. vickie says:

    she’s got really unfortunate legs.

  26. anoneemouse says:

    Poor dirty slut. Why doesn’t she just leave and buy another mansion to live in if it’s bothering her so much?

  27. ThatBoyLuke says:

    @Jezi whether she sells the house or not if she paid for it Jordan should move out, that’s just common sense.
    Again where is the proof she cheated? i mean i know she was getting with girls but that was part of an OPEN marriage that Jordan accepted so it wasn’t cheating and she wasn’t with her BF till after they split.
    No i don’t think she should have moved her BF in so quick (if she has) but it’s hardly gonna be shocking to the kid she probably has staff living there too and if she’s drunk when she’s out that doesn’t make her any less of a good mother, her son wasn’t around and she takes good care of him when he is around.

  28. Cherry Rose says:

    @ ThatBoyLuke – Most people don’t consider it good parenting of you going out night after night, getting drunk out of your mind, and stumbling around.

    It doesn’t matter that Christina has nannies or staff to help her with Max. She is his mother and she needs to grow up and act like a parent. I’m not saying she should go out and have fun. But to constantly go out partying? No.

    For us regular people, if we went out partying all the time, we’d probably get Child Social Services knocking at our door, taking our kids away.

    Christina needs to stop thinking only of herself, and start thinking of Max.

  29. munchies says:

    Bow Legs and she looks like a basketball.

    Shes also a party crasher. Classless.

  30. ThatBoyLuke says:

    @Cherry Rose, how do we even know she’s out “night after night” i’ve not even seen any pics of her in a club just stories from anonymous people. I think she is probably drinking too much but she’s obviously having problems at the moment and since she’s taking care of her son in the day and isn’t getting drunk around him it isn’t affecting him at all probably.

  31. Jezi says:

    @ThatBoyLuke well IMO if there are multiple stories being leaked that she’s out partying, it’s a smart PR move not to go out partying. Especially when it makes her look like an unfit parent and can be used against her in court. You don’t think that Jordan will be making note of his wife’s behavior and using it in a claim to get full custody? Look at Britney Spears and Kevin Federline. Britney made Kevin look like a wondeful father and he was a POS. Whether she’s with her son or not, she needs to pay paticular attention to her behavior and how she’s portrayed. She can have fun and live life but when you’re a mother and you are about to get a divorce, your number one priority is your child, not clubbing and not the new boyfriend.

  32. MoMo says:

    I kind of hope she and Bratman are able to work things out and get back together. He seems responsible and has a career to support himself at least.

  33. Dana M says:


    I agree with you. I do respect that jordan bratman is sticking around for his son.

    @ jezi- ITA. CA needs to put her sons needs
    Before her selfish wants. Poor little boy. Can’t
    Believe Christina is a “floozy boozy” now.

    @ Cherry rose- agreed. I would not consider CA a role model parent by any means. Moving in her new BF so early…her public drunken nights out….

    You know, I’ve come to realize that these celebrites shouldn’t be making babies when statistically,their relationships always end up in divorce/ breakup. Then the kids are the ones who suffer. Who cares if they want to be spreading their legs with ALL of their back up dancers. I really don’t give a rat’s a$$. Just don’t plan to have kids ….and dont marry my son. I know partying is fun. Had the time of my life living it up, traveling around the world and being selfish before kids. Ive learned that having children is a huge commitment and it take selfless people to raise them the right way. Celebrities should not have kids.

  34. Syssi says:

    This is pure bull s#@$! I don’t even believe Xtina had done this! You’d have to be a complete nincompoop to believe this! Come now, stull bull shitting me!

  35. Anthony says:

    She’s the one who cheated. Why should he leave. I would have changed the locks a long time ago. Or she should have enough class to just give it to him. He deserves it. I’m sure she can afford it. He’s the one that’s the victim. She doesn’t look like she’s hurting?
