Christina Aguilera has reportedly split from her music executive husband, Jordan Bratman, after nearly five years of marriage.
The 29-year-old is said to be devastated after it was leaked earlier today in an American magazine that the couple had decided to call time on their relationship.
Singer Aguilera, who has a two-year-old son Max with the music executive, told People magazine: Although Jordan and I are separated, our commitment to our son Max remains as strong as ever.
According to reports, she split from 33-year-old Bratman during the summer and has repeatedly been seen without her wedding ring.
The break up is also said to have contributed to her recent weight gain, something which had been speculated on since her appearance at a party two weeks ago.
Since first meeting in 2002, the couple have had a seemingly strong relationship. They were first introduced whilst Bratman was working at Azoff Music Management.
They married in 2005 in a lavish ceremony.
The news comes within days of other celebrity couples splitting up; on Monday it was reported that Ben Harper and Laura Dern were to separate and on Tuesday Courtney Cox and David Arquette announced their trial separation.
