Christina Aguilera Detained, Not Charged for Public Drunkenness 2Christina Aguilera, who reportedly has been in a downward spiral since her marriage broke up, was detained early this morning in West Hollywood, gossip Web site TMZ is reporting.

Matthew Rutler, Aguilera’s 25-year-old boyfriend, was arrested at the same time.

Aguilera was taken to jail at 2:45 AM and was held overnight at the West Hollywood Sheriff’s substation for being drunk in public. Rutler was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

On the booking report, Aguilera was listed at 5’2″ and 100 pounds.

Rutler’s bail was set at $30,000, according to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.

Last December, semi-nude photos of Aguliera in a huge walk-in closet lined with a wall of shoes leaked online.

The same month she touched off an uproar in the UK for an over-the-top raunchy performance on the X-Factor that led to an investigation by UK censors.

Then, during last month’s Super Bowl, she was given the honor of performing the National Anthem, but flubbed the lyrics.

Her movie, “Burlesque,” with Cher, was only tepidly received by critics and did not do well at the box office.

Aguilera ended her marriage to Jordan Bratman last year and is struggling to make a music comeback after a four-year lay-off to have a child.

Some reports have claimed she is spiraling out of control with drugs and alcohol.
