After MediaTakeOut.com published a story implying that Christina Aguilera gave her 3-year-old son a black eye, the 30-year-old half Ecuadorian songstress is livid and threatening to sue. Aguilera was recently photographed with little Max, who was sporting a freshly bruised eye, apparently from taking a tumble while playing. According to TMZ, an attorney for The Voice judge sent a letter to MediaTakeOut stating: “We understand the cult of personality that exists but there are limits that any decent person should respect. Christina is a wonderful mother and was not present in the park when Max fell and hurt himself,” Eric Greenspan wrote. Images surfaced yesterday of the superstar carrying her son which show bruises under the Max's eye.
The story on the site originally read: CHILD ABUSE???? CHRISTINA AGUILERA'S SON IS PHOTO'D WITH A BLACK EYE!!! In the letter addressed to MediaTakeOut.com, Greenspan added: “To imply that she [Christina Aguilera] had something to do with this incident, without any investigation on your part whatsoever, is reckless and unconscionable. We reserve all our client’s equitable remedies for this reputable disparagement of our client’s character. As set forth above, HAVE YOU NO SHAME!!!!!!!”
MediaTakeOut has since removed any implication that the injury may have been a result of Aguilera’s abuse from the post. Max Liron is Christina's only child from her marriage to ex-husband Jordan Bratman.
