Weeks after filing for divorce from her husband, Jordan Bratman, Christina Aguilera is beginning to open up about the reasons for the split.

The 29-year-old Bionic singer details the breakup to People magazine in its newest issue, painting a picture of an “unhappy” and “unhealthy” union:

“Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it. I really didn’t want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up.”

Ultimately, Aguilera admits, she officially called it quits for the sake of the couple’s two-year-old son, Max Liron. Says the singer, whose own parents split when she was 7 years old,

“When you’re unhappy in your marriage, your children are the ones who suffer. That’s the last thing I wanted for my son.”

Meanwhile, Aguilera appears to have moved on with a new love interest, Matthew D. Rutler, a production assistant on Aguilera’s new movie, Burlesque.
