CHRISTINA AGUILERA and her boyfriend MATT RUTLER were taken into custody early Tuesday by law enforcement authorities in West Hollywood.
RadarOnline.com reports that officials say that Aguilera — who was a passenger in a car being driven by Rutler — was "severely intoxicated" and was taken to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s station at Santa Monica Blvd. and San Vicente in West Hollywood around 2:45 a.m. PT for observation.
Cops say they detained the pop star and are holding her until she either sobers up or she can be remanded into someone’s custody.
Rutler was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
At this time, Aguerilla is not charged with any wrongdoing, but could face charges for boozed up public intoxication.
It’s been a brutal six months for the Genie In A Bottle singer: the Burlesque star jumped on another singer’s line and lost her footing during her performance at last month’s Grammy Awards.
Shortly before that, during the Super Bowl, she botched her perf of "The Star Spangled Banner" to much hue and cry by crix.
