Christina Aguilera is a doting mom to 2-year-old son Max with husband Jordan Bratman, has a successful music career, and recently added actress to her resume. Though the singer appears to have a good head on her shoulders, her upbringing was a challenge, having been raised by a physically and emotionally abusive father. In an interview with Latina magazine via US Weekly, the Beautiful singer opened up about her “nonexistent” relationship with her father.
Aguilera recalled the struggles that her mother had to face before leaving her dad when she was 7, saying,
To remember the chaos that [my mother] went through, the abuse, I don’t know how she did it. But it’s amazing how much you can trick your mind into surviving when you have to.”
Though she feels there is “no reason” for a relationship with her father at this point, Aguilera says, “There’s always room for forgiveness. And I do forgive–but you grow up and make choices for your family.”
She also gives credit where credit is due, dishing on husband Jordan Bratman’s role in the situation, “Jordy was the calm in the storm when everybody else was driving me crazy.” She added, “I had a lot of older people around me who were conniving–and these people do that so you cling to them. He was the person who reached down, pulled me out and made me see reason. I’m very lucky to have him.”

Let the gossip begin. Kelly Rutherford was spotted holding hands and cuddling up to a mystery man alongside her daughter Helena, 1 next month, in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Thursday (May 13). Big brother Hermés, 3 1/2, was not spotted with the trio.
Looks like Kelly has entered the world of dating again. Earlier this year, the Gossip Girl actress said she wasn’t ready to meet someone at that point:
Dating is not really my focus at the moment. If it happens, great, but I have the two most beautiful little ones, a great job, and it’s really all-consuming.”
Kelly filed for divorce from the kids’ father, German businessman Daniel Giersch, when she was just three months pregnant with Helena.
