Adam Levine has defended Christina Aguilera against jibes about her weight.
While The Voice co-stars may bicker on-screen, Adam insisted they have a close relationship and he won't let anyone say anything bad about the singer, who has recently come under fire for her fuller figure: "It's not cool. I've never liked it. I think it's horrible and I'll totally defend [Christina] when people say things like that because it's no one's business. The one thing about the culture right now, celebrity culture particularly, is people feel like they can just say nasty things about other people whether it's Christina or whether it's me. Of course I have her back and of course I defend her."
Scarlett Johansson should be paid $66,719.49 in restitution by admitted hacker Christopher Chaney.
According to the sentencing recommendation filed by the US State's Attorney's Office, the Avengers actress is entitled to that amount after having her privacy invaded.
The federal court recommended only $7,500 for Christina Aguilera who was also a victim when naked images were obtained by Christopher. The Voice judge's amount came about because although her email was hacked, she never had to deal with a website posting her nude photographs like Scarlett.
However, the state's attorney finds it "unlikely," given his employment record, that the hacker will be able to "repay any significant amount to the victims." Therefore, they are also asking for a "high-end" prison sentence of 71 months. Apparently he took naked images of Christina from her stylist's email account and Scarlett's from emails she sent to her then husband Ryan Reynolds.
Christina Aguilera's boyfriend is "happy with her body." The 31-year-old actress is known for her fluctuating weight, but Matthew Rutler - whom she met on the set of Burlesque in 2010 - thinks she looks great, whatever her shape.
"Matt is happy with the way she looks, however it is. Even when she was looking heavier, he would always say, 'She looks gorgeous to me,'" a source said.
The couple got together shortly after Christina ended her five-year marriage to Jordan Bratman, and a friend claims no one expected their year-long relationship to become so serious. "We thought it was going to be a quick, seat-of-your-pants romance, [but] it's turned into something special," the insider said.
A driving force behind their success is believed to be Matthew's bond with Christina and Jordan's four-year-old son Max. "He recently surprised them by taking them to Cirque du Soleil's Iris show. They had a blast," the source said.
-Did Oscar winner Rachel Weisz leave fiancé Darren Aronofsky -- the father of her four-year-old son – for her Dream House costar Daniel Craig? That’s what many tabloids are speculating. (Craig has been engaged to producer Satsuki Mitchel.)
-It appears Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen may be giving it another try. The formerly engaged actors are reportedly dating again. The two called off their wedding earlier this year.
-Congratulations to Karina Smirnoff and Brad Penny. The Dancing with the Stars pro and the baseball player are planning to walk down the aisle. Smirnoff was previously set to wed dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
-Is Christina Aguilera dating a set assistant from her upcoming movie, Burlesque? Not according to Matthew D. Rutler’s mother. Kathleen Rutler says her son is simply giving the soon-to-be divorced singer a “should to cry on.”
Does Christina Aguilera really blame her husband for her failed album? Did the singer really have an open marriage? Those are questions you will not find answers for in Aguilera’s recent interview with Redbook.
“Out of respect for my husband, I prefer to keep the specifics private. Right now, I’m just trying to figure out how to make it through each day,” Aguilera states in the magazine’s December issue.
Although Christina was tight-lipped about the reasons behind the separation, she does address the end of her nearly five-year marriage.
“It’s not easy, and there have been a lot of tears and sadness,” she said just one day after the separation was announced. “It’s impossible to redefine yourself and your life overnight. Thankfully, I have my mom and a small group of close friends who are there for me 24/7 and whom I can trust and depend on. On days when it feels impossible to even get out of bed, much less function as a mother, their support and encouragement have kept me moving forward.”
We should be expecting to hear more from Aguilera in the coming weeks. Her new movie, Burlesque, opens this Thanksgiving.
-Christina Aguilera is looking to make her separation from husband Jordon Bratman a bit more permanent. Aguilera officially filed for divorce on Thursday. The singer is asking for joint legal and physical custody of son Max.
-Colin Farrell and actress Alicja Bachleda are no longer a couple. Bachleda -- Farrell's costar in Ondie -- is also the mother of his 1-year-old son, Henry. Colin also has a 7-year-old boy from a previous relationship.
-Actor Morgan Freeman will reportedly have to pay about $400 million in cash and property to his ex-wife. The National Enquirer claims the 73-year-old had affairs with a former school teacher and his step-granddaughter.
-On a happier note, Brothers & Sisters star Dave Annable wed Odette Yustman last weekend. Annable had been dating the You Again actress for over two years.
UPDATE #2: Aguilera has since filed for divorce.
UPDATE: In a statement released to People, Aguilera says: “Although Jordan and I are separated, our commitment to our son Max remains as strong as ever.”
The upcoming Thanksgiving holiday will likely be an emotional one for Christina Aguilera.
Although Aguilera's husband, Jordan Bratman, should be celebrating the Nov. 24 release of Burlesque with her, it's just been revealed that the two have separated.
November 19 would have been their five-year anniversary.
According to a source, the two have been separated for months. Another insider added: "Right now they’re just trying to figure things out. There are no divorce proceedings at this point.”

Award season is long, fraught with gossip, and seemingly unending. Someone always walks away with a statue - some performers and artists walk away with several. But by the time the same awards are given out the next year, no one really cares who won what the year before.
What we do remember is what they were wearing when they were doing it. People may not remember which Grammy Jennifer Lopez won the year she wore the green Versace gown, but they remember the gown. This year’s VMAs may be remembered for several years - the pictures not of moon men statues, but of the clothes everyone wore.
Whose couture sang the sweetest…and whose fashion was completely discordant?
