Just two days before publicly announcing the disillusion of her marriage to Jordan Bratman, Christina Aguilera was seen in an L.A. emergency room with a freshly busted lip. Of course, her husband claimed she had “fallen” and landed on her face, but the timing of her injury seems awfully suspect. Radar Online says:
“Christina was bleeding from her mouth and had a busted lip,” a source who saw the couple at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center said. “Jordan told the nurses she had fallen down.”
According to the witness, Aguilera was [also] sporting “bumps and red bruises” along with her bloodied lip.
Adding to the mystery of why the singer needed treatment, on October 12, she was photographed wearing a hat pulled down over her face with what appears to be a small cut below her lower lip.
That is the same day that she and Bratman announced the end of their five-year marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
This might be a snarky gossip blog and all, but don’t expect me to say anything sarcastic here. Domestic violence is never funny. Not until it’s been properly set up in classic one-liner fashion, like “What do you tell a woman with two black eyes? Nothing, somebody already told her twice!” or “What do you do when your dishwasher breaks? You hit her!” It’s really all in the execution.
