Now that Christina Aguilera has split from husband Jordan Bratman, she has to learn to share her son for the holidays. While 2-year-old Max spent Thanksgiving in L.A. with his dad, the Burlesque star took a trip east with pals -- and her new guy, Matt Rutler -- to fill the void.
"This is the first Thanksgiving she was without Max," a source told People.com. "It was really hard for her and she was feeling sad, so she decided to go to the East Coast with Matt and a group of friends."
Aguilera's new beau kept her busy, as they jetted off to New York before heading to Rhode Island to visit Rutler's family.
"Since his family lives so close, they decided to drop in for a few hours," says the source.
Though meeting her man's mom, Kathleen, sounds like a step towards the serious side, the insider claims Aguilera and Rutler (who met on the Burlesque set) are taking things slow.
"They’re still getting to know each other better," says the source.
