How Did Christina Aguilera and Matt Rutler Meet?
Christina and Matt have a rare and interesting love story. The “Dirrty” artist landed her iconic role as Ali Rose in the 2010 musical Burlesque alongside music legend Cher and gained more than just an onscreen lover. Matt worked as a production assistant on set, and the two instantly hit it off when they started filming in 2009. However, the former Voice coach was married to ex-husband Jordan Bratman, with whom she shares her son, Max, at the time, but she filed for divorce in October 2010.
“Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me — I knew I had to end it. It wasn’t good for us, and it wasn’t good for Max to witness our arguments,” she told People in December 2010. “Children can feel when things aren’t right in the home. I had bouts of extreme anxiety. I really didn’t want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up.”
The divorce was finalized in April 2011, and the two have remained in a healthy coparenting relationship since.
