In Touch: Christina Aguilera is considering proposing to her boy-toy Matt Rutler

I can’t even imagine what Matthew Rutler’s life is like right now. A few years ago, he was just a production assistant in LA, enjoying his early 20s, perhaps living paycheck to paycheck. He goes to work one day on Burlesque, and suddenly Christina Aguilera is leaving her husband and she moves Rutler into her house and he becomes part of her entourage of sycophantic yes-men. Perhaps Rutler is even the most important part of her entourage – he’s in change of making sure his girlfriend wears pants in public (he fails at that job sometimes), he’s in change of driving his girlfriend home every night after she gets hammered at random bars (he failed there too), and what else? I guess they have sex too. Although I imagine it’s a mess, both literally and figuratively. A whirl of orange foundation, clown lipstick, booze, bleached wiglets, chicken wings and sadness. But maybe Christina is a better lover than I’m giving her credit for – she seems like a void of narcissism, and sometimes “egotistical” makes for a good lover.

Anyway, the rumor going around In Touch Weekly is that Rutler wants to marry Christina, and Christina wants to marry Rutler, but as of yet, no one has actually proposed.

Christina Aguilera is so anxious to marry boyfriend Matthew Rutler that she’s preparing to pop the question herself. Indeed, Christina, 30, has not been shy about telling friends and family that she and her beau are definitely getting married.

According to friends of the couple, “She makes jokes about him proposing all the time in front of him. He gets a little embarrassed, but it’s obvious they’ve talked about it. It’s coming soon. She wants to start over and thinks that asking him to marry her is the way to start.”

But another friend says Matthew, 26, may actually beat her to the punch. He wants to propose over Christmas but he’s scrounging for money to buy her a rock. Unlike Christina’s ex-husband, Jordan Bratman, Matthew doesn’t have the funds to keep up with Christina’s lifestyle or extravagant tastes.

“He wants to buy her a major diamond, so he’s saving his pennies,” a friend said. “He’s going to propose this year, even if he has to buy the ring on credit.”

I don’t have a problem with a lady proposing to her dude, but let’s just call this what it is – a rich, boozehound diva wanting to marry the guy that cleans her up when she’s had too much of the sauce. We don’t have to put a bow on it. Christina should buy herself a gigantic diamond and order Rutler to propose to her. That’s how Jessica Simpson did it, right?

    That’s a nanny, not a hubby.

    Oh, baboo. Don’t do it, honey.

      ITA – its a disaster in the making. I still feel bad for Xtina – she’s a mess but …. There’s a child involved and I think her ex is still caught up in it because of their son. No good to come out of this. I grew up with an alcoholic parent and when you’re little, it can be very scary because its out of your control. Again sad.

    Really. Who cares.
    Side note: I’m getting confused about the use of the term ‘boy toy’. It used to be for girls (remember Madonna’s ‘boy toy’ belt in the 80s? Classic). Then it started to get used for guys who date considerably older women, like Demi and Ashton. And now, I guess, all guys with older girlfriends are ‘boy toys’, even if the age difference is only a few years (Christina Aguilera is 30, this Rutler chap 26)? Does that mean that the Biebs is Selena Gomez’ boy toy?

  4. GiGi says:

    My God. That last picture with her airbrushed makeup all over her hairline! She needs to get it together.

  5. Lama says:

    He looks like a mix of her ex and Seth MacFarlane.

  6. Jayna says:

    Maybe boytoy in the sense that he’s babyfaced, young, 26,and doesn’t work, no career, always there for her as her companion, clearly being financially supported. I agree, though, they are only a few years apart in age. Though Xtina looks about 40 these days with hair and makeup.

    Love the JSimp mention because they do have a lot in common:

    - Love their booze
    - Attached to losers and happy to maintain them: gigolos
    - Both have weight issues (partially due to booze and Xtina probaby other things too) and try to find excuses (Xtina: Latina; JSimp: example for women) while overweight but when skinny they like to flaunt it just like anybody else
    - Both try to venture out in other businesses with mixed success
    - Both have a failed marriage behind their belt due to their own foolery (e.g. cheating, married too young and subsequently not willing to work harder for the union with the men having to take the blame for it)

    Just saying. Although I prefer JSimp over Xtina any day because the latter is truly a crazy narcissistic mess! At least JSimp is nice…

    Her hair is so dead and nasty. It must feel like straw.
    She needs some intervention al la the Spears family/Brittany. It is clear she is not being rational and clear headed by her appearance and behavior, al la Brit 3 yrs ago.

    • says:

      Ok., maybe I’m missing something, but why does wveryone not
      Like jsimpson’s guy? He was a football player which takes tons of dedicationand work: he’s not working now, and maybe it’s just because I love simpson and want her to be happy but her man seems so much more tolerable to me

  10. Akula says:

    I want to take one of those makeup wipes (or a few) and just wipe all that gunk off her face. That’s all I can focus on when I see these photos.

  11. PyCaramel says:

    She’s looked worse…I just really want her to let go of the red lipstick and soften her look a little. The red is making her teeth look yellow. But as far as I’m concerned she’s paid her dues and has the money, so she can live the way she wants.

  12. Marjalane says:

    uh-oh. smells like the vodka talking to me- C.A. is going to hate herself if she ever sobers up long enough to take a good look at this cretin.

  13. Kelly says:

    “A whirl of orange foundation, clown lipstick, booze, bleached wiglets, chicken wings and sadness.” – That is one of the best lines ever written!!! Kaiser, you have outdone yourself.

    I love that this series of photos has been resurrected – I love the foundation-stained hair. I just can’t get enough of it.

    Call me old-fashioned – and it’s ridiculous, I know, so don’t jump all over me, people! – but I think the man should propose.

  14. Kimbob says:

    Hahahaha!!! Now, THAT’S rich! So…boozy fatso’s gonna slur (I mean propose) “the question?” Rich, I tell you….just RICH!

    And yes @Kelly…I agree. Let the man propose….however I don’t see a man in this pairing….just a sycophant “yes” boy/booze-hound partner. LOL!

  15. heatheradair says:

    I would say, “ehhhhh, fair or not, it always seems to emasculate the man when a girl proposes,” but — C’MON — this guy is pretty much as emasculated as a dude can get — he *IS* a nanny to a famously bloated diva riding her last wave of marginal relevance straight down to the bottom of a Gallo gallon jug……it’s hard to “man up” in that situation, period.

    • Kelly says:

      That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking. Well said, well said. There’s a really unequal power relationship going on here.

      I think she should up his allowance a little, though, for his drycleaning bills to get the whiskey and foundation stains out of his clothes.

  16. truthful says:

    well we all know he is waiting on her to purchase the ring, when she sobers up she’ll get it.

  17. Cerulean says:

    Truck stop stripper wants to marry her enabler. Such an endearing love story. I see them growing old together…in a cardboard box clutching self tanner and a bottle of gin.

  18. skuddles says:

    That’s a boy toy?? If I were Xtina I’d start shopping at a better toy store.
