In what can be deemed as an incident any celebrity gossip follower could have easily seen coming, Christina Aguilera was arrested early this morning for public intoxication.

According to TMZ, the singer was booked around 3 a.m. at the West Hollywood police station for the misdemeanor offense, while boyfriend Matt Rutler was also processed on charges of drunk driving. His bail was set at $30,000.

It's been a troubling few months for Aguilera, as friends have been concerned over her downward spiral since her divorce from Jordan Bratman.

Aside from her memorably embarrassing national anthem mishap at the Super Bowl, Christina has most recently been accused of having sex with Rutler during a family gathering.

Cops reportedly pulled Rutler over this morning after they noticed him driving erratically. Sources say Aguilera acted "extremely intoxicated" and was "unable to take care of herself."

UPDATE: Says Sgt. Michael Thomas of West Hollywood Sheriff's Department: "Aguilera was taken into custody "for her own safety. It's kind of a welfare 'arrest.' Not a criminal arrest. She was intoxicated - too much to be in public. No one was available to take care of her, because the person she was with was arrested for drunk driving. When it's determined she's sober, she'll be released."

Poor Christina Aguilera.

Exactly one week after her notable lyric snafu at Super Bowl XLV, the artist returned to a grand stage at the Grammy Awards. Teaming up with Jennifer Hudson, Florence Welch, Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams for a tribute to Aretha Franklin, Aguilera remembered every word and received a standing ovation following the performance.

She then slipped and almost crashed off the stage, as seen toward the conclusion of the following video.

Christina Aguilera botched the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLV and may have an obvious drinking problem. But she did receive a piece of good news this week.

She and Jordan Bratman reached a divorce settlement that was filed in court, and better yet, dude finally moved out of her house. He was still living in that piece!

Jordan, Christina and her new boyfriend Matt Rutler were all living under the same roof, along with their son Max. That's not awkward at all, and explains a lot.

Sources say they will share joint custody of Max, although the legal papers don't specify the terms of custody. As far as their assets, the couple had a prenup.

Reports say that Bratman will receive more than required by the prenup in the settlement, although the exact amount is unclear. As for what Xtina received?

Jordan moving out is a start. The divorce won't be final until six months from the date it was originally filed, so on April 15, she's legally a single woman.

Well, she's still dating Matt. But you get the idea.

Prior to her globally-televised miscue at Super Bowl XLV, Christina Aguilera had sung the national anthem perfectly in the past, word for word, note for note.

Take Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals, for example.

Or just take rehearsal that afternoon. A video has surfaced of Aguilera practicing the country's most patriotic single on the day of the big game, nailing every aspect of it. Does this mean she simply choked on a major stage? That her friends are somehow correct and a drinking problem played a role in the flub?

We can't say. We can just show you a beautiful rendition of the song and let you form your own opinion on Christina:

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie was quick to come to Christina Aguilera's defense after she botched the national anthem yesterday before the Super Bowl.

On the Dan Patrick Show this morning, Fergie admitted the Black Eyed Peas halftime show effort was also sub-par, then defended the embattled Aguilera.

Claiming she's "human" and people make mistakes, especially given this once in a lifetime opportunity, she chalked the Star Spangled Bungle up to nerves.

Some might chalk it up to Christina's obvious drinking problem, but as always, Ferg was more diplomatic. Here's a portion of her interview ...

To friends of Christina Aguilera, her national anthem mishap at last night's Super Bowl wasn't a case of nerves.

It was just the latest example of a human being in desperate need of help.

Aguilera has had a rough yer. Her latest studio album tanked; reviews for Burlesque were less than kind; she divorced Jordan Bratman in the fall of 2010 and quickly started up with Matthew Rutler, someone her associates believe is a shady rebound.

Since then, racy photos of the artist were leaked online and sources say she passed out in Jeremy Renner's bedroom at the actor's 40th birthday party.

"Christina's drinking has some of her friends worried," an insider tells In Touch Weekly. "She seems to be getting out of control, and her friends want her to get PROFESSIONAL help. The past few weeks, her partying has escalated."

That was not the case at the Super Bowl, however. Witnesses say Aguilera hung around for the beginning of the contest, but quickly left for the airport, skipping all post-game events and looking "visibly upset" over her lyrical mistake.

Poor Christina Aguilera.

The singer choked on the biggest stage of her career Sunday night, stepping to midfield prior to Super Bowl XLV and flubbing a lyric to the national anthem. Aguilera left out the words "O’er the ramparts we watched” and instead inserted “What so proudly we watched" in their place.

Watch the entire performance for yourself:

We really do feel bad for Christina, who has sung this iconic song in public on a number of occasions. Still, it was not the most embarrassing thing to happen to her this year.

UPDATE: Aguilera has released the following statement in response to the gaffe:

"I got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”

Before the Green Bay Packers line up across the field from the Pittsburgh Steelers for Super Bowl XLV, Christina Aguilera will sing the game's national anthem.

"I have been performing the anthem since I was 7 years old, and I must say the Super Bowl is a dream come true," the singer said today in a press release. "I am really excited to be part of such an iconic event."

Aguilera is no stranger to singing this song prior to significant sporting match-ups. She did so at Game 7 of the NBA Finals last year, as seen below. Think Christina is a good choice for the Super Bowl?

Elsewhere, The Black Eyes Peas will be the game's halftime act, representing the first time since we all saw Janet Jackson's nipple that a group with a hit single at some point in the last decade has been selected for this honor.

On January 8, Christina Aguilera woke up in the bed of Jeremy Renner. But it's not what you think. Not at all.

A new report in Us Weekly states that Christina didn't merely crash this Oscar nominee's 40th birthday bash - she went all Snooki at the event, got "wasted" and passed out in the actor's bedroom!

Christina Aguilera and Matt Rutler

Hold on tightly, Matt Rutler. You don't want Christina to pass out on the sidewalk.

"Christina was a mess at that party," an insider says. "She acted like a fool. Her boyfriend was shushing her and telling her to go to sleep."

The magazine even quotes Renner himself as telling people about the incident at a Golden Globes after-party on Sunday night.
