Although she only filed for separation from Jordan Bratman a few weeks ago, Christina Aguilera is already on the prowl.
The singer has been quietly dating Matthew D. Rutler, a set assistant on Burlesque. The two went on a double date hide at El Lay's SoHo House on Friday with Nicole Richie and Joel Madden.
But the romance didn't start off strong - it sparked from a friendship!
A source close to Xtina claims:
"It's not serious yet, but it's something she is exploring and finding comfort in. It's new and she’s taking it day by day. She and Jordan were having problems for a long time. What kept them together is their love for their son. She met [Matthew] on set and, during a difficult time, leaned on as a friend. After she and Jordan separated, the friendship turned romantic.
Being a great mom to Max is the most important thing in her life."
Ha. The source is pretty reliable, so we're excited!
Go get 'em, honey.
