CHRISTINA AGUILERA BRINGS ‘BURLESQUE’ TO TOKYO
Upon her graceful arrival on the red carpet, the singer-turned-actress was presented with a birthday cake in honor of her 30th birthday. (Xtina doesn’t hit the landmark birthday until December 18).
No sign of Christina’s new boyfriend Matt Rutler. But the 29-year-old starlet has been open about the fact that she struck up a friendship with the set assistant during filming.
“Matthew is a special person,” she told People magazine last week. “We had a really strong friendship on the movie. He’s the kind of person you could spend hours on the phone talking to and all of a sudden it’s daylight. Once I filed for divorce, we started dating. I’m not trying to jump into anything. I just left a five-year marriage. I’m taking it slow and trying to be happy.”
But despite insisting they are taking things slowly, she added: “There’s a love there, yes. I’m having fun, I’m dating and it’s something I haven’t had in a really long time.”
