SplashNews.comThe pop star has broken her silence and confirms that she and husband of five years, Jordan Bratman, have split.

We were so sad to hear the news today that Christina Aguilera and her hubby of five years, Jordan Bratman, “have been separated for a few months.” The singer confirmed the split and released a statement this afternoon. “Although Jordan and I are separated, our commitment to our son, Max, remains as strong as ever,” she says.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette have also split.
Read about how they told their daughter, Coco.

Christina, 29, and Jordan, 33, wed in California’s Napa Valley on November 19, 2005 and had their son Max, 2, in January 2008. A source tells Us magazine that the couple have not yet decided whether to divorce, saying “they are now living apart, and they will see how that goes.”

“They were very much in love,” explains the insider. “But over the last six months, it became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife.” We hope Christina and Jordan can work things out, but we are glad to hear that Max remains their number one priority right now.
