Has Christina Aguilera Been to Rehab?
Uh oh. Christina Aguilera had a pretty bumpy 2011, but we didn't realize it was this rough. Following the posting of a blind item, reports are swirling that 'The Voice' coach has checked into rehab three separate times for alcohol addiction. Say it ain't so, Xtina!
According to reports, Aguilera's affinity for alcohol is the worst kept secret in Hollywood, making the blind item almost transparent. The blind blurb reads, "This former A list female singer who has had a very crazy year has checked into rehab on three separate occasions this month. She has also checked herself out the very next day each time because she is afraid she will lose her current job if her current bosses find out.”
The clues certainly can point to Aguilera, though we hope that her higher-ups at 'The Voice' would commend her for taking steps to improve her condition instead of ostracizing her for it. The report goes on to say that Xtina is trying her best to avoid her problem being publicized (er, too late?) because it would do damage to her image. After her Super Bowl flub, the underwhelming 'Burlesque' box office, 'Bionic' bombing and the backlash for her weight, we can't exactly blame her.
This isn't the first rumor of an addiction for Aguilera. Last year, the New York Post reported that the 'Bionic' belter had refused interventions from those closest to her. Their concerns may not have been unfounded, as Xtina was arrested for public intoxication with boyfriend Matthew Rutler.
For what it's worth, Aguilera's rep has denied the allegations, so hopefully the diva will be able to put this behind her. If she is seeking help, we commend her and wish her the best.
