Did Cupid go evil and start flying around shooting the divorce arrow? The latest celebrity couple to announce their separation in the last 48 hours: Christina Aguilera and hubby Jordan Bratman.
I know -- crazy, right?!
Christina and her music producer hubby met in 2002, then married in 2005, and made a beautiful baby together two years ago. And now they're joining the ever increasing ranks of separated celebrity couples. A source tells Us magazine:
They were very much in love. But over the last six months, it became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife ... she even proposed their August trip to Italy to rekindle their relationship, but it didn't help.
Seriously, what is in the water in Hollywood? This at least diminishes our cougar curse theory, since Christina is younger than Jason (she's 29, he's 33), but dang, reading about all of these couples breaking up is just depressing. Musician Ben Harper and actress Laura Dern, who have been married for five years, announced the other day that they've arrived at splitsville, and Courteney Cox and David Arquette made headlines last night when it was revealed the couple of 11 years were parting ways.
Granted, Christina and Jordan are currently just separated and are hoping to work things out without having to file the divorce papers, but realistically, how often does that happen? Unless, of course, you're Speidi and want to gain more publicity fall in love all over again in Costa Rica.
Are you as shocked by this news as I am? Do you think these two will end up getting a divorce?
