*Christina Aguilera doesn’t seem to have hung about in moving on to a new man following her split from hubby Jordan Bratman.
The singer has been seeing a set assistant called Matthew Rutler off of her new flick Burlesque for the past couple of weeks. And from what my sources say the pair put on quite a performance at Soho House in LA on Friday with their first public outing as a couple.
My source was on a table nearby Xtina and Matt at the exclusive venue as they dined with pals Joel Madden and Nicole Richie. And they were great to spy on! My source says: “As the evening went on and they had a few drinks Christina was all over him – she didn’t give a monkeys who saw her.
“She had her hands all over his thighs and they were kissing every so often and his arms were stroking her back. They were drinking champagne and then went on to mojitos which Christina was overheard saying were her favourite.
“Christina got louder and louder and at one point just got up and started dancing on her own and was grabbing Matt’s hands trying to get him up from his seat to dance with her but she was having none of it. Nicole and Joel sat their laughing away and thought the whole thing was very amusing.”
My source adds they overheard the group talking about Nicole and Joel’s impending nuptials next month and Christina said she was taking Matt as her arm candy.
This week handsome Matt’s mum Kathleen Rutler came out saying he wasn’t dating the star – who only filed for divorce on October 14 – and told sources that as far as she knows, her son and Xtina are “absolutely not dating” and are just “friends.”
She admitted that her son has told her that “Christina needs a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen to her problems,” and that is exactly what he’s doing for her, nothing more.
But it seems that Mother dearest is out of the loop on this one!
*And it isn’t just Christina Aguilera and Matt that are hotting things up at Soho House in LA. Another well heeled source of mine was out on Monday evening at the establishment and she couldn’t believe her eyes when rapper P Diddy and Kanye West’s ex Amber Rose started cosying up on a table in a corner. My spy tells me: “They were huddled in a corner. They looked very lovey dovey and everyone at first thought it was actually Kanye. But it was Diddy. Amber was wearing these hideous red tights and kept leaving him to go off for cigarettes. They were cuddling and everything.” Love is in the air people.
