Aguilera ‘blames hubby for cold album response’

New York: Christina Aguilera parted ways with husband Jordan Bratman after her recent career comeback fell flat, according to pals.

The superstar apparently told pals she was "upset and frustrated" by the lukewarm response to her album, ‘Bionic.’

"She feels that he held her back when she wanted to focus more on her career," a daily quoted one friend as saying.

Meanwhile, Aguilera has been hanging out with a new, wilder crowd including DJ Samantha Ronson.
