London: Socialite Nicole Richie has showered praises on her friend Christina Aguilera and calls her a "strong" woman for the way she has dealt with her divorce.
Aguilera filed for divorce from her husband Jordan Bratman last month and recently admitted she has been struggling since the painful split.
Richie asserted that Aguilera is dealing with her heartache admirably well, as she is continuing to work and look after her young son, Max.
"It`s very clear through Christina`s music what a strong woman she is, but to watch her as a mother only sky-rockets the respect I have for her. She is the woman who is recording until 4 a.m. and up at 7 a.m. to be with her son. Her dedication is incredible," dailystar.co.uk quoted Richie as saying.
