Who Is Christina Aguilera's Longtime Fiancé, Matthew Rutler?

Christina Aguilera is currently in a long-term romance. Previously, the "Beautiful" vocalist wed Jordan Bratman, a music executive, back in November 2005, as MTV News reported. By October 2010, however, Aguilera had filed for divorce, per the BBC. This came almost three years after the exes welcomed a son named Max, via The Mercury News. After their split became public, Aguilera opened up about why divorce was ultimately the right choice for her.

"Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it," Aguilera said to People in December 2010. She added, "I really didn't want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up." During the interview, Aguilera went on to discuss her then-new romance with Matthew Rutler. "He's the kind of person you could spend hours with on the phone talking to, and all of a sudden it's daylight," Aguilera said. On Valentine's Day 2014, Aguilera announced in a now-deleted Instagram post that she and Rutler had become engaged, per Glamour. Rutler's professional ventures include fulfilling a high-ranking role for a helpful company.
