Aguilera looks for support from mum, pals post-split

New York: Christina Aguilera is relying on her mother and pals for support after separating from hubby Jordan Bratman.

"It`s not easy," the New York Post quoted her as telling Redbook shortly after news broke of her separation.

"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," she said.

Her pals presumably include Samantha Ronson, whom Aguilera vacationed with right before announcing the breakup and who``s a regular visitor to her home.

"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," she added.
