Christina Aguilera Taken Into Custody For Public Intoxication

Oh, Christina Aguilera—what a time you’ve been having these past 12 months. Adding to the 30-year-old singer’s woes—which include a flop album, divorce, poorly-reviewed movie and sketchy Super Bowl performance—is the report by TMZ that she was taken into police custody with boyfriend Matthew Rutler when he was pulled over by cops in West Hollywood and arrested for a misdemeanor DUI. According to TMZ, the po-po allegedly determined that Xtina was “extremely intoxicated” and unable to care for herself, so they dragged her in, too. The pair were said to be pulled over around 2:45 a.m. this morning for Rutler’s erratic driving.

Maybe Aguilera really should take that judging gig on upcoming NBC reality singing competition The Voice—it could be the one bright spot in her dismal past year. Then again, if the show tanks while pop contemporaries Britney Spears and Lady Gaga have new albums out, it could signal more career headaches for the soulful singer.
