Back in October, Christina Aguilera’s 9 year relationship and 6 year marriage to Jordan Bratman came to an end, just 12 days before the release of her movie Burlesque. Unfortunately the movie kind of sucked, so that didn’t really help her mood any either (in 10 weeks it’s made $81.5 million worldwide).
After that she reportedly sunk into a depression that ended with her unannounced and uninvited at Jeremy Renner’s birthday party, where she got drunk and passed out on his bed. Those two had never previously met, by the way.
So, with all that in mind…
…her staff banded together with a plan to persuade her to get some help.
But when Aguilera caught wind of their plan, she threatened to fire all of them for even suggesting that she has a problem, a source told Page Six.
“They wanted to talk to her carefully about the issue, but they’re not going to because they are scared after she threatened to fire them. Her people desperately want this to come out so she will get help.”
To be fair, having a disappointment like she did can drive anyone to drink. Or at least that’s what my dad told me after I dropped that touchdown in pee-wee football.
