Christina Aguilera confirms romance with Matt Rutler

London: Pop star Christina Aguilera has accepted her much speculated relationship with Matt Rutler saying she was happy and having fun for the first time ‘in a really long time’.

The singer had been linked to Rutler, a set assistant from the film ‘Burlesque’, soon after she filed for divorce from then husband Jordan Bratman in October.

"Once I filed for divorce, we started dating. Matthew is a special person. He`s the kind of person you could spend hours with on the phone and all of a sudden it`s daylight," quoted Aguilera as saying.

"I`m not trying to jump into anything. I just left a five-year marriage, I`m taking it slow and trying to be happy," she added.
