Christina Aguilera’s Pre-Split Hospital Trip

Christina Aguilera reportedly made a late-night trip to a Los Angeles hospital a few days before announcing her divorce, receiving stitches for a bloody lip, according to a RadarOnline report. On closer look, photos taken on October 14 seem to show swelling in Christina’s lower lip as she spends the day with her son Max at a pumpkin patch.

David Perel, RadarOnline’s executive vice president and managing editor, tells Celebuzz that the report “lends even more drama to what is already a dramatic and surprising situation. It is not a domestic violence situation, but there is still a mystery about how Christina sustained the injuries.”

Aguilera’s reps replied “no comment” when contacted by Celebuzz.

According to the Radar report, Aguilera “was bleeding from her mouth and had a bit of a busted lip” when she went to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She was there with Jordan Bratman, her husband at the time, who reportedly told nurses that Christina suffered the injuries during a fall.

Aguilera’s surgeon was reportedly called to the scene to give the singer some discreet stitches in her lip.

Perel says “there’s no reason to doubt” Bratman’s claims on how the injury happened, but adds: “But what happened before she fell down and was injured? That’s the question everyone is curious about.” He goes on to say that there’s more to come on this story later Thursday.

The pop music world was stunned when Aguilera and Bratman confirmed their separation on October 12. Days later, Aguilera took the process one step further, filing for divorce from Bratman, who she married in 2005.
