Her former set assistant's mother sure doesn't think that is the case.
Yeah, not so much.
Kathleen told sources that as far as she knows, her son and Xtina are "absolutely not dating" and are just "friends." She admits 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. Kathleen added:
"He is a wonderful son and a very loyal person, who hates seeing anyone upset. There is no doubt he enjoys Christina's company, as a friend! That is what she wants right now, a friend. Matthew has told me she really finds it hard to find anyone genuine to listen to her. Despite what it may seem like, she is finding this split very tough."
Then it's good that Christina has him.
We're still not convinced that she couldn't also be leaning on him for OTHER needs. A grown son doesn't have tell his mother everything!
