Pop star Christina Aguilera is recovering from her sudden divorce from husband Jordan Bratman but the singer says there have been "a lot of tears and sadness".
The 29-year-old star is putting a brave front following the split. Aguilera filed for divorce from Bratman, a music marketing executive, last month after five years of marriage. They have a two-and-a-half-year-old son Max.
But despite her busy schedule Aguilera sometimes finds it difficult to get out of bed, the Daily Mail reported.
"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," Aguilera told Redbook magazine."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," she added.
The singer, however, refused to go into the detail about why the marriage failed in the interview.
"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. Thankfully, I have Max to keep me on a sane path. His needs and happiness are my top priorities, and my biggest concern is to protect him and make him feel safe," she said.
