It’s Christina Aguilera who is the latest star to be rumored to be in need of a small stint in rehab.
An incident that resulted in the singer’s arrest for public intoxication is the latest in a spate of events that might indicate that the blonde bombshell has gone off the rails and could do with spending some time courtesy of Betty Ford.
It’s not surprising the star has lost it. First she divorced Jordan Bratman, then her studio album bombed, dodgy photos appeared on the internet and most recently was the incident where she bungled the words of the US National Anthem at the Super Bowl.
Rumors that the ex-Disney star has been drinking excessively, “has some of her friends worried,” an insider disclosed in In Touch Weekly. “She seems to be getting out of control, and her friends want her to get PROFESSIONAL help. The past few weeks, her partying has escalated.”
On New Year’s Eve, “Christina was so wasted before her guests arrived that her mother told her to lie down and sober up,” and in January Christina was reportedly found passed out due to booze in Jeremy Renner’s bedroom having arrived at his his birthday party – uninvited. “Her drinking is out of control,” an Aguilera source told America’s Us Weekly. ‘She’s a total mess.’”
Most recently unflattering police images have appeared across the internet following her arrest on March 1 when boyfriend Rutler was pulled over for suspicion of DUI.
Steve Whitmore, the chief public information officer for the Los Angeles Sheriffs department said of her arrest: ’They [police] witnessed a person driving erratically.”
“At 2.45am this morning a gentleman was stopped for allegedly driving under the influence.
“He was subsequently arrested and his passenger, Ms Aguilera, she was arrested.
“It was kind of a unique situation with this law as she was not capable of taking care of herself. She was incapacitated.
“When she got out of the car, she couldn’t stand. We had to help her stand,” he added. “She didn’t know where she was and she didn’t know her own address. We took her into custody for her own protection. She was co-operative and she was not belligerent in any way whatsoever. She was just intoxicated.”
Let’s hope Aggy pulls it together soon.
