Christina Aguilera says that she decided to file for divorceÂ becauseÂ her marriage wasÂ unhealthy…but she sure did find a new man ( who also happens to be an old friend/setÂ assistantÂ from Burlesque). I am often weary of people who start dating so soon after breaking up with someone!
“Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it,” theBurlesque star, 29, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. “I really didn’t want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up.”
“When you’re unhappy in your marriage, your children are the ones who suffer,” says the Grammy-winning pop singer, whose own parents’ tumultuous relationship led to divorce when she was 7. “That’s the last thing I wanted for my son.”
Since filing for divorce, Aguilera has been out in Los Angeles and New York City with aÂ new man, Matthew Rutler, a set assistant onÂ Burlesque.
“He’s the kind of person you could spend hours with on the phone talking to and all of a sudden it’s daylight,” she says.
