Christina Aguilera Battling Alcoholism?

Posted by PZ on March 2nd, 2011

Forget Charlie Sheen, there is a new train-wreck hot mess in town – it’s Christina Aguilera. According to a close friend, Aguilera has been drowning her recent sorrows by going on a variety of wild night outs, all of which involve heavy drinking. Christina was arrested alongside her new boyfriend in the early hours of Tuesday morning this week, and police involved in the incident have released a statement which says they took Christina in to custody for her own safety:

“When she got out of the car, she couldn’t stand. We had to help her stand, she didn’t know where she was and she didn’t know her own address. We took her into custody for her own protection.”

A close friend commented that Christina’s drinking habit is out of control: “Her drinking is out of control, she’s a total mess.” It appears Christina has turned to drinking after her hard break up from husband Jordan Bratman – back in December, when Christina was traveling to promoting her movie Burlesque, she reportedly went on boozy nights out in each city she stopped at – a source close to her new flame, Matthew Rutler commented:

“Every city they went to — London, Tokyo — Christina was pretty drunk, and Matt had to carry her home.”

There have been instances of Christina being spotted at various other celebrity parties, as well as night clubs downing drinks and often crying – there is clearly an underlying problem.
