Oh no! Gossip website TMZ is reporting that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] was arrested early this morning for public intoxication!
Listen to Carson and Perez break down the whole situation:
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] and her boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, were arrested in West Hollywood around 2:45am. She was booked for public intoxication and he was arrested for a DUI. Those are both misdemeanor offenses.
Police pulled over the couple when they noticed Rutler was driving erratically. His bail was set at $30,000.
According to TMZ, law enforcement sources say the 30-year old entertainer appeared “extremely intoxicated” and “unable to take care of herself.”
Aguilera has been going through a tough year or so, filing for divorce, struggling with sales on her most recent album, enduring harsh criticism of her film Burlesque, and flubbing up the lyrics to “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl.
We’re big fans of the pop star, so we hope this is the wake up call she needed to get back on track!
UPDATE: There’s a little bit of good news for Christina. Although she was arrested, booked, fingerprinted, put in a cell, and monitored, LAPD spokesperson Steve Whitmore says they have no desire to prosecute her. As for her boyfriend, that’s still up in the air.
