Pop singer Christina Aguilera has split from her husband of nearly five years, Jordan Bratman.
Aguilera, 29, was seen in a tearful embrace with a good friend as news of her split from 33-year-old music executive Bratman emerged.
According to US Weekly, the two have been separated for a few months, and are now living apart, but they are yet to decide whether they will get a divorce or not.
“They have been separated for a few months,” the Daily Mail quoted a source close to Aguilera as telling the magazine.
“They were very much in love. But over the last six months, it became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife,” the source revealed.
However the pair are reportedly trying their hardest to remain on friendly terms for the sake of their two-year-old son, Max.
“Christina is doing her best to be a great mum. She has a lot to juggle, but she’s learning how to make it work and balance it all,” the source added.
