On the heels of the separation announcement, Christina Aguilera makes it official by filing for divorce today from her husband of five years, music producer Jordan Bratman.
TMZ has the court documents in which Christina Aguilera cites "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce petition from Jordan Bratman.
Aguilera released a statement earlier this week, telling People: "Although Jordan and I are separated, our commitment to our son Max remains as strong as ever."
The divorce specifics
The divorce petition, which lists the date of separation as September 11, 2010, states that:
"Earnings and accumulations of [Aguilera] before marriage, during marriage and from and after the date of separation" are considered separate property.
The pop singer is asking for joint physical and legal custody of her 2-year-old son, Max, with Bratman. She is also hoping to block Bratman's ability to get spousal support.
Did her friends encourage the divorce?
Aguilera recently took a girls vacation to Cabo San Lucas with friends including Nicole Richie and Samantha Ronson. She reportedly opened up
about Bratman, saying he has been inattentive and neglected her for the past five years.
Her friends reportedly encouraged her to move on -- and she listened.
