When Christina Aguilera was arrested on March 1st for public intoxication, her friends were hoping it would be the wake up call she needed to see that her drinking had gotten out of hand. But instead of a wake up call, she got last call, 3 days later, at the very same bar she was in the night she got arrested.
Us Weekly reports that on March 4, three days after a wine-drenched feast at Osteria Mozza led to her public intoxication bust, Aguilera and her beau Matthew Rutler returned.
On their menu that night? Two bottles of wine — and absolutely no regrets.
“She acted as if the arrest never happened,” a source tells Us. “When their server offered them dessert, they asked for more wine.”
When it was time to leave, “She seemed tipsy.” (Thankfully, she went home via chauffeured limo.)
Still, an Aguilera insider notes that the star hasn’t changed her hard-drinking habits since her arrest. “She should see the arrest as a wake-up call, but she doesn’t. She doesn’t think things are that bad.”
“She’s nearly fall-down wasted nearly every night.”
The bad news is that she’s “fall down” drunk every night. The good news is she’s gotten so fat she would bounce.
Culminating yesterday when they were both arrested in West Hollywood, her for public intoxication and him for a DUI, Christina Aguileras life has been on a downward spiral ever since she started dating Matthew Rutler in December. Oh and don’t worry, her friends have noticed. People says…
Still, some friends worry about Rutler’s influence on Aguilera. “There’s a real concern about this guy, and a lot of her friends feel she needs to get away from him,” the pal says. “Hopefully, what happened [on Tuesday] is a real wake up call.”
“She is going out more and drinking more,” the friend continues. “She feels she is embracing her freedom and enjoying life … but now friends are hoping that she takes a step back and focuses on herself for a while.”
Obviously she needs to dump this jackass, but after that the key to her comeback is to set manageable goals. She can’t try to be the old Christina, not yet, she’s too drunk and too fat. To be honest I’d be impressed if she could even get off the toilet by herself.
Matthew Rutler, the KFed to Christina Aguileras tubby and eventually crazy Britney, was arrested early this morning for driving under the influence, but in his defense he had to drive because Christina was even drunker.
The two were booked at a West Hollywood Sheriff’s station at 2:45 a.m.
According to TMZ’s report, a law enforcement source says that Aguilera, 30, who was booked on a misdemeanor charge, was “extremely intoxicated” and “unable to take care of herself.”
I’m not a man who prays very often, but pplleeaassee let that mean that she pee’d on herself.
Christina Aguilera has been in the news a lot lately, all of it bad.
– She fell down at the Grammys (2.14.11).
– Her friends were planning an intervention (2.8.11).
– She forgot the words to the National Anthem (2.7.11).
– She crashed a strangers party and passed out drunk in his bed (1.19.11).
– She doubled in size. (1.17.11)
Today will not reverse that trend.
An insider tells Us that (Christina and her new boyfriend Matthew Rutler) had sex in a bathroom at a recent family gathering.
“Her friends are fed up,” the source says of Aguilera’s recent antics, which included a New Year’s Eve blowout fight with her mom and a booze-filled night of crying at L.A. club The Dime in January. “Nobody can get through to her. They think she’s trashy. And her ego is out of control.”
“She’s really spiraling,” says (another) source. “I would be shocked if she’s not in rehab in the next month or two.”
You could definitely argue that she shouldn’t have had sex at a family party, but parties have tons of cakes and pies and cookies. Look at her. Of course she was gonna get turned on.
If Christina Aguilera is the kind of person who writes out her goals, and her goals for last nights seemingly endless tribute to Aretha Franklin on the Grammys were to…
1. Get fatter.
2. Scream until all people hear is a ringing sound.
3. Fall down.
Then it was another home run for Christina, because that’s what she did. Luckily she caught herself and didn’t hit the ground. The two singers next to her tried to help but unless they both happen to be Superman, she probably would still be there right now.
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.
