Christina Aguilera Officially Files For Divorce

Pop star Christina Aguilera has officially filed for divorce from her music executive husband Jordan Bratman of five years. Earlier this week (Tuesday Oct 12), Aguilera confirmed the separation, stating “Although Jordan and I are separated, our commitment to our son Max remains as strong as ever.” Now days later Aguilera dissolved the union by filing papers in the Superior Court of California on Thursday (Oct 14). In the legal documents, obtained by TMZ.com, the “Beautiful” singer cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for divorce and claims they split on September 11, 2010. She has hired top celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to represent her. The petition states the former couple signed a pre-nuptial agreement when they wed in November 2005 and Wasser asks for the “earnings and accumulations of (Aguilera) before marriage, during marriage and from and after the date of separation” be considered separate property. The singer is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their two-year-old son Max, while she is also requesting a judge deny Bratman the opportunity to claim spousal support. The separation/divorce comes as a shock to many as Aguilera is usually praising her husband. “It’s important to be open to growing together and when the going gets tough, you have to see how you can make your relationship more special and how you can spend more quality time together,” Aguilera tells Cosmopolitan. “Everyone has rough patches, everybody grows and we all change. It’s important to give each other room to grow, and to accept them for who they are.”
