The romance between newly-single Christina Aguilera and her Burlesque set assistant Matt Rutler continues heating up, and this past weekend the singer got acquainted with Rutler’s family on a trip back east.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Aguilera filed for divorce from Jordan Bratman, the father of her 2-year-old son Max, on October 14.
Since Bratman had the child for the holiday, Aguilera spent the time with Rutler in his old stomping grounds.
“This is the first Thanksgiving she was without Max,” a source told People. “It was really hard for her and she was feeling sad, so she decided to go to the East Coast with Matt and a group of friends.
“Since his family lives so close, they decided to drop in for a few hours,” the source told the magazine. “They’re still getting to know each other better.”
On Saturday night, the two were spotted at New York City’s Standard Hotel, where they partied the night away at the venue’s Boom Boom Room.
Burlesque is in theaters now.
