Christina Aguilera looks lithe and elegant on W magazine’s July cover. The Voice coach, 30, sports long, white-blonde frizzy extensions and covers her nude body with a bouquet of crimson red roses.
In the interview, Aguilera opens up about her failed marriage to music producer Jordan Bratman, with whom she has a three-year-old son, Max. “At one time or another we were not angels,” she says candidly. “It got to a point where our life at home was reminding me of my own childhood. I will not have my son grow up in a tension-filled home. I knew there would be a negative reaction in the press to my divorce, but I am not going to live my life because of something someone might say.”
Since her split with Bratman, Aguilera’s found love in the arms of her new beau, Matt Rutler, who was a production assistant on the set of Burlesque. “He was so supportive. He still is,” she says. “We’ve been through a lot in the past year.”
