With a failed marriage, stalled career, weight issues and an embarrassing arrest for public drunkenness, Christina Aguilera's world has spiraled out of control. In our new issue, we reveal the painful secret that caused her meltdown and detail her toxic new romance. In the March 21 issue of Star — on sale now — we report that the singer is plagued with personal demons — and how the collapse of her marriage to Jordan Bratman last fall has completely derailed her.
“Christina’s lost her confidence since she split from Jordan,” an insider tells Star. “She gets terribly sad, and that’s when all the awful memories come flooding back and she ends up numbing herself with booze and food.” Her new life with bad boy beau Matthew Rutler — who was arrested for DUI when Christina was busted for public drunkenness — hasn’t helped her regain stability – with her friends calling him an enabler. And Christina turns more and more to alcohol to help her with her woes – a faltering career, significant weight gain and a potential custody battle over 3-year-old Max. "Everyone is worried sick," says a concerned pal. "She needs to get help before something even more serious happens."
