Christina Aguilera's attorney has sent a letter of warning to a celebrity gossip site that posted an headline accusing the singer of child abuse. MediaTakeOut.com recently posted an image of Aguilera holding her three-year-old son Max, who appeared to have a black eye, along with the caption "CHILD ABUSE???? CHRISTINA AGUILERA'S SON IS PHOTO'D WITH A BLACK EYE!!!"

"To imply that she had something to do with this incident, without any investigation on your part whatsoever, is reckless and unconscionable," Aguilera’s lawyer, Eric Greenspan, wrote in the letter. "Christina is a wonderful mother and was not present in the park when Max fell and hurt himself."

The website responded to the letter by removing all references to child abuse and including Greenspan's explanation for the child's black eye. Aguilera currently has no plans to pursue a lawsuit for libel.
