Christina Aguilera arrested for public intoxication

Christina Aguilera, 30, was arrested early this morning on a charge of public intoxication and her boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, 25, was charged with Driving Under the Influence after police noticed him “driving erratically” in West Hollywood. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Aguilera was “extremely intoxicated” and “unable to take care of herself.” Sources close to Aguilera told TMZ they’ve been trying to get her into rehab for weeks. On the booking report, Aguilera was listed at 5’2″ and 100 pounds (police must have asked her for her weight rather than actually putting her on the scales — she’s closer to 140 pounds). Aguilera broke up with her husband, Jordan Bratman, with whom she has a young son, last October.

    how do you charge someone with public intoxication when they are the passenger in a vehicle being pulled over….if you were being responsible and taking a cab home after a night out and the cab get’s pulled over are you charged for doing what the law requires…..charging the driver with dui makes all the sense in the world but charging the passenger is simply a publicity stunt or an attempt to force her into rehab likely set up by someone close to her that cares

    Since when does the person’s weight have anything to do with news??!! Stop making 140lbs seem like a crime!! Does commenting on her weight make you feel better about yourself? So many people have weight issues, under weight or over weight. Don’t put so much importance on this insignificant matter!! Did you dream about writing this crap when you went to school?!!

    Danielle, sounds like you’re a little touchy about your own weight. 140 pounds on a 5’2″ woman is overweight. Try using a BMI calculator. That’s officially overweight and it’s funny that she tried to get away with saying she’s 100 pounds. A 5’2″ woman who weighs 100 pounds is officially underweight on the BMI (Body Mass Index) scale. If she was 100 pounds, she’d look really skinny and if you’ve seen her lately, she’s no stick figure.

    Another one that will end up in rehab, my god, is that the only option when the career goes to shit?

    And so? A lot of moms find it hard to lose the baby weight. She looks fine in this picture. As long as she’s eating right and exercising, why complain?

    Agree with joe, though. Good thing he was charged, but arresting someone in the passenger’s seat of the car? The article doesn’t mention if she was wandering down the street or anything, so I share joe’s confusion.

  6. Amanda • March 1, 2011 @ 5:24 PM

    She may look fine to you, Red, but being overweight is not healthy. She had a baby over two years ago, he’s no longer an excuse. But the funny thing is she tried to pass herself off as a skinny when anyone with eyes can see she’s not. I’m sure you can agree she’s not skinny or even close to skinny? Saying you’re 100 pounds when you’re 140 or more and you’re obviously lying is pretty funny. She was obviously wasted if she thought anyone would believe that. If she’d said anything closer to her actual weight (even 125), it wouldn’t be nearly as funny. She might as well have said 80 pounds and given her name as Mary-Kate Olsen.

    I love how fat people are getting offended. The only reason the report stated the 140 because its sheer ridiculous to claim she’s 100 pounds, like the above poster said. Stop taking it so offensively.

  8. joe • March 1, 2011 @ 7:46 PM

    good lord you’re all half retarded….it doesn’t say anywhere that she claimed she was 100 lbs….it says the police report lists her at 100 lbs. perhaps american drivers licences list your weight and that’s what she was at the time, perhaps because the cops know the charge doesn’t hold water they simply went by her resume which would list her as she was when her sex appeal was her selling card at 100 lbs.
    Of course she was wasted….what’s the point of this statement….that is what she was arrested for….again you can’t arrest someone for public intoxication as a passenger in their own vehicle….if she were causing a rucuss on public transportation perhaps or kicked up a fuss when pulled over she’d be charged with drunk and disorderly or mischeif.
    Stop being a puppet and letting immature articles like this govern your thoughts or opinions

    Wow, who GAF whether she had a few too many or how much she weighs. She wasn’t behind the wheel, and she didn’t hurt anybody.

  10. Danielle • March 2, 2011 @ 2:34 PM

    Amanda….its pretty dumb to assume I am overweight!! Sure its funny that she lied but that is hardly news worthy. Since you are SOOOOO informed on the proper body mass for heights you should also inform yourself of the world wide problem going on around you. Young girls/boys look at these celebrities as role models and what they are seeing is skeletons with skin on their bones & they hear that 140lbs is fat! So they think it is OK and normal and healthy to look like your body is eating itself from the inside out. It is by far more healthy for her to be at the weight she is then to be 100lbs. But I suppose you think Keira Knightly and Angelina Jolie look healthy. There is nothing wrong with the way Christina looks and its disturbing that society is sending out the message to young impressionable kids that there is!

    I know people with eating disorders on both sides and see what starving yourself can turn you into. Thats why this topic angers me the way it does. Because these disorders not only effect the person in question but their loved ones too.

  11. Amanda • March 2, 2011 @ 5:03 PM

    I think there are far more young people who think it’s okay to be obese than there are anorexics. There’s an epidemic of fat kids these days. If you’re all up in the air about celebrities being too skinny, you should be royally pissed off that she’s trying to pass herself off as underweight. Kids will read that Christina Aguilera is 5’2″ (she’s actually not even that tall) and only weighs 100 pounds and will set that goal for themselves. It’s as dishonest and dangerous as magazine covers being airbrushed so these celebrities look amazing while regular people feel inadequate.

  12. joe • March 2, 2011 @ 5:22 PM

    ok all that bullsh*t being said no one mentions it may be a far more daunting problem that all the “regular” people feel inadequate for such superficial reasons. My children (12 & 13) love themselves for who they are and feel sorry for these celebrities with substance abuse issues. If your children look up to , lindsay,britney, charlie sheen etc.etc. you really need to concern yourself with your parenting abilities and not the image that rich spoiled hollywood brats present themselves with. Being a fool is not cool….it’s a simple message that even the youngest kids can absorb….again this article is writtenas irresponsably as most on tribute to sensationalize something that would otherwise not garner interest.
    wake up puppets….there is no other issue here besides she needs to realy question her taste in men. Drinking and driving is unacceptable no matter who you are or who you’re with

  13. Andrea • March 3, 2011 @ 12:01 AM

    She’s a pathetic loser any way you look at it. Drank so much she was out of it. Got into a car with a drunk driver. Had a kid in a marriage that she couldn’t make last so now the kid is torn between two homes and has a drunk for a mother. Very sad. I hope the father gets full custody after this. She’s obviously not fit in any sense of the word.

  14. Jo-Anne • March 3, 2011 @ 12:36 AM

    amanda, your reasoning is….well, unreasonable

    “Kids will read that Christina Aguilera is 52 (shes actually not even that tall) and only weighs 100 pounds and will set that goal for themselves.”

    what kids? Yours?

    Mine certainly wouldn’t have…

    extremely overweight/underweight are obviously both unhealthy however the very fact Aguilera’s weight is more newsworthy than the DUI is sadly telling of many in our society….

  15. Germain • March 3, 2011 @ 8:38 AM

    You never heard anything like that from Aquilera before she got divorced. Now that she’s a mother, she’ll start partying and ride with a drunk? Why couldn’t she do that before she had a kid if she was going to do it at all?

  16. Serenity • November 13, 2011 @ 1:39 PM

    I think she’s beautiful at 140. OF course not the drunk 140 pound…
    And this whole ‘kids setting a standard”
    it’s freaking true.
    i’m not going to lie,I’m 15 and was watching her old music videos when she really was likely 100 pounds, and I WAS setting standards with myself.
    Call me unhealth, or call me stupid. Or say my parents suck at parenting.
    But really, it’s almost natural to do so, in the society we live in.
    I’m 5’2. I’m 140 pounds.I get 3 hours of excerise at least 5 days a week, and on dance practice days, i cran rack up 5 hours.
    She is NOT over weight, BMI doesn’t take in account body structure(where the fat is placed COMPLETELY makes a difference, you are stupid for using BMI to claim someone is ‘overweight”.)nor does it take in muscle. That girl is not just fat, she is defiantly solid and toned.
    I’m completly curvy, i have a 28 waist, WHICH IS HEALTHY, but my hips carry all my fat at 40 inches.
    Are you going to call me fat? Because I cannot help how it is placed on my body.

    Adopt a policy If your child misbehaves, don’t let it go for the sake of an easy life. Southerland’s 13.8 points per game are a team high, and he’s shooting 43.1 percent from 3 point range. She and her husband, Rick, hosted a boy named Anatoly, who lives in the same orphanage as Zhenya.need to see the world through their eyes, said Rapson, whose youngest child was adopted from Russia.
