Bad news for concerned friends of Christina Aguilera: things are getting serious between the singer and production assistant/musician Matt Rutler.
Those close to Aguilera are reportedly worried that she's rebounding from her divorce with the wrong man, but that hasn't stopped this relationship from progressing.
The couple enjoyed an evening out at the Abbey in West Hollywood on November 24, where a witness says the pair drank, danced and "Christina was in a great mood and seemed very into Matt."
From there, sources tell People that Aguilera and Rutler flew to New York for the weekend, as the former left son Max with his father, Jordan Bratman.
"This is the first Thanksgiving she was without Max," said an insider. "It was really hard for her and she was feeling sad, so she decided to go to the East Coast with Matt and a group of friends."The trip cross country took these two to Rhode Island, where Aguilera took a major step in meeting Rutler's mother. Does these mean wedding bells might actually be on the way already?
Not so fast, says a friend: "They’re still getting to know each other better."
Christina met Matthew on the set of Burlesque, where he worked as a production assistant and she worked as one of the leads in the movie alongside Cher. You can watch clip from the film HERE.
