Christina Aguilera Threatens to Sue Website Over Fraudulent Claims of Child Abuse
Yesterday, pictures surfaced of Christina Aguilera at LAX airport with her 3-year-old son Max in tow. The toddler had a nasty black eye, and despite the fact that kids are some of the most accident prone humans walking the earth, some media outlets quickly began twisting this story into an account of child abuse.
Daily Mail is reporting that Christina Aguilera, 30, is absolutely furious over gossip website MediaTakeOut.com's claim that she is abusing her son. The website published an article with the photo above with a headline that read "CHILD ABUSE???? CHRISTINA AGUILERA'S SON IS PHOTO'D WITH A BLACK EYE!!!"
Christina Aguilera is now threatening legal action against the website. Aguilera's lawyer Eric Greenspan wrote a letter to the website saying, "Christina is a wonderful mother and was not present in the park when Max fell and hurt himself," referring to Max hurting himself while playing, causing the black eye. Greenspan continued, "To imply that [Christina] had something to do with this incident, without any investigation on your part whatsoever, is reckless and unconscionable." He even went on to quote the prosecutors in the trial against Senator Joe McCarthy, and ended the letter with "HAVE YOU NO SHAME!!!!"
According to Us Magazine, Max actually fell while chasing squirrels in the park. An insider close to Aguilera also released a statement saying, "Any reports stating she isn't a good mom are incorrect. The reports are actually disgusting. Christina is an amazing mom. Max is a happy playful and active boy who has a loving and safe home."
We have to agree. Just because a kid gets a black eye does in no way mean that it's stemming from child abuse. Sure, Aguilera has made some mistakes in the past, but that does not give anyone the right to question her as a mother. In the picture, it is obvious that she in comforting her son, holding him close to her and cradling her in her arms. We hope everything gets squared away in this case.
