Christina Aguilera and music executive husband of five years have separated and are living apart, Us Weekly reported on Tuesday (Oct. 12).
The celebrity news website said Aguilera, 29, and Jordan Bratman split up a few months ago, but have not yet decided whether the divorce.
“They are now living apart, and they will see how that goes,” Us Weekly quoted a source close to the “Beautiful” singer as saying.
“They were very much in love. But over the last six months, it became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife,” the unidentified source said.
