Police spokespeople have said Christina Aguilera was arrested yesterday for her own safety, not because she was engaged in any kind of criminal activity.

Still, this caveat does not mask the fact that the singer has a clear drinking problem (cops on the scene said she could not stand and did not know where she was). Friends tell TMZ they've been urging Christina to check into rehab for months now, even prior to her October split from Jordan Bratman.

"Maybe when she was married she was able to keep it under wraps, but it's out in the open now," a pal tells the site.

Christina Aguilera Mug Shot

E! News got its hands on the Christina Aguilera mug shot this artist's team never wanted you to see.

Insiders add that Aguilera's drinking was a major concern for Bratman, who brought up the topic during the ex-couple's child custody agreement.

In light of this incident, will he push for more time with son Max? Might Christina finally check into a treatment center? We'll keep readers apprised on the state of the latest celebrity downfall.

New details have emerged on Christina Aguilera's recent arrest, and they don't make the singer or boyfriend Matthew Rutler look very good.

Sources tell TMZ that Christina and her man dined in a private room at posh Los Angeles restaurant Osteria Mozza until well past midnight. Deep into a couple bottles of wine, a fellow patron reportedly recognized Aguilera, asked the waiter to send her a drink and was told: "She's already drinking a bottle of wine... or two."

Hilarious.

Matthew Rutler Mug Shot

Meanwhile, both Rutler and Aguilera have been released from jail. They are allegedly holing up in her Beverly Hills home.

Pulled over by police for swerving on the road, Rutler blew a .09 on the breathalyzer, according to Radar Online. The legal limit in California is .08. He doesn't look too broken up about it in the mug shove above, does he?

As for Christina, L.A. County Sheriff Office spokesperson Steve Whitmore says Aguilera was a complete mess when she and Rutler were pulled over: "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."

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.

Matt Rutler and Christina Aguilera

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.”
