Christina Aguilera Did NOT Hit Her Son
Christina Aguilera is the subject of an ugly and 100% false rumor that she gave her son a black eye. MediaTakeOut speculates that the singer might be guilty of “child abuse” because her son, Max, was photographed with a bruised face (see right).
“Normally we would just chalk this up to a CLUMSY KID,” declares the site, “but the word on the street is that Christina has a DRINKING PROBLEM… so who knows WHAT could have happened.” As is so often the case, MTO is the one with no clue about what happened, or, in this case, any consideration for a good and loving mom’s reputation.
It turns out that 3-year-old Max was chasing after some squirrels while at the park with his nanny when he fell. A friend of Aguilera tells Gossip Cop that Max loves to run around, especially in the park. The infuriated friend says, “As everyone knows, kids fall, and to insinuate anything else is absolutely disgusting.” After the slip, Max went immediately to the doctor, where he was checked out. Aguilera and her son are currently on a long-planned two-week vacation together.
To recap, her kid had a run-of-the-mill, very minor accident, and MediaTakeOut decided to use a photo of him with an innocent black eye as an excuse to imply that Aguilera’s a drunken child abuser. It’s just plain awful. Well, Aguilera’s lawyer, Eric Greenspan, is not just sitting around.
In a letter obtained by Gossip Cop, Aguilera’s attorney lashes out: “Our office represents Christina Aguilera and we have reviewed your post where you implied that our client may have been guilty of child abuse because her son had bruises under his eyes… Christina is a wonderful mother and was not present in the park when Max fell and hurt himself. To imply that she had something to do with this incident, without any investigation on your part whatsoever, is reckless and unconscionable.” Not ruling out legal action, Greenspan adds, “We reserve all our client’s legal and equitable remedies for this reputable disparagement of our client’s character,” and ends his missive by admonishing MediaTakeOut, “HAVE YOU NO SHAME!!!!!!!!”
