Don’t expect to see Christina Aguilera out and about much anytime soon. After being ridiculed for reaching an estimated 180 pounds during her first pregnancy in 2012, sources are saying that Christina is worried her weight will spiral out of control again this time around.
“She’s decided that in order to stay healthy and maintain her self-esteem,” says a source, “she would rather not be in the spotlight so she doesn’t have to deal with the haters.”
Christina was spotted on March 21 emerging from an SUV in Beverly Hills, covered up with a baggy top and hiding under her hat. While many women embrace their new curves, “She seemed to be self-conscious,” an eyewitness says. “It was like she didn’t want to be seen.”
Christina has even started pulling away from friends in recent weeks. “She’s completely fallen off the radar,” says one pal. “She and (fiancé) Matt (Rutler) have been dodging phone calls and avoiding going out.” Adds the source, “She’s strong, but even she has her limit. She can’t go through all of the humiliation of being ridiculed again.”
