Pop star [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] is livid over a recent online report. The article suggests that Aguilera beat her son Max, after the 3-year-old was spotted with a black eye.

The whole story seems like a tabloid fabrication. Max was with his nanny at the park, chasing squirrels, when he tripped and fell over a rock, badly bruising his face.
Christina’s lawyers are threatening to sue.
“To Whom It May Concern:
Our office represents Christina Aguilera and we have reviewed your post where you implied that our client may have been guilty of child abuse because her son had bruises under his eyes. 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. To imply that she had something to do with this incident, without any investigation on your part whatsoever, is reckless and unconscionable.
We thought it might be productive for you to read Joe Welch’s admonition to Senator Joe McCarthy at the end of the Senate hearings. Hopefully you will learn something from this. Here is what was said and a link to it is provided.
‘Until this moment, Senator, I think I have never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness… If it were in my power to forgive you for your reckless cruelty I would do so. I like to think that I am a gentle man but your forgiveness will have to come from someone other than me…’
Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency…
We reserve all our client’s legal and equitable remedies for this reputable disparagement of our client’s character. As set forth above, HAVE YOU NO SHAME!!!!!!!!

Aguilera has had her problems with alcohol in the past, but by all accounts is a good mother. Should she be given the benefit of the doubt?
