In an interview with the December issue of Redbook, though, Christina Aguilera doesn't make her divorce sound too atypical from others across the country. It's simply been very hard.
"It's not easy, and there have been a lot of tears and sadness," she says. "It's impossible to redefine yourself and your life overnight. Thankfully, I have my mom and a small group of close friends who are there for me 24/7 and whom I can trust and depend on. On days when it feels impossible to even get out of bed, much less function as a mother, their support and encouragement have kept me moving forward."
No longer a wife, Christina Aguilera will always be a mother to Max.
There have been rumors of infidelity involving both her and Jordan Bratman, but Christina took the high road when asked about the split:
“Out of respect for my husband, I prefer to keep the specifics private. Right now, I’m just trying to figure out how to make it through each day."
