Christina Aguilera has made no qualms over the years about being estranged from her father, but it seems the famous singer’s distant relationships with her paternal grandparents may be causing additional family drama.
“The Voice” coach isn’t on speaking terms with her “dying grandparents,” Radar Online reports. The family hopes that the 31-year-old diva can put aside any hard feelings before it’s too late, Christina’s paternal uncle, Johann Aguilera told Star magazine.
“Christina’s grandfather is 86 and her grandmother is 82. They have health issues,” Johann said, adding that her father’s parents are “gravely ill” and want nothing more to see their famous granddaughter.
“I know how much joy it would give my parents if she came back into our lives again,” he said about Aguilera, who is mother to four-year-old Max.
While Aguilera has famously spoken out about the emotional and physical abuse her mother endured by her father, the “Dirty” singer told Latina magazine that she was ready for reconciliation with her estranged dad.
“I’ve talked about how rough things were for me and I’m sure he’s heard it. He can’t be thrilled about it. So maybe one day we can do lunch… I’m 31 years old now. Maybe it’s time,” Aguilera said.
Aguilera is no stranger to feuds, having been in the news many times over the years for a number of high-profile disputes with fellow celebrities (Britney Spears and Eminem, just to name a few). The latest? Fellow “The Voice” star and Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine, who was the primary target of a few noticeable digs over the season. Levine seemed to have taken it all in stride, even sporting a glittery “Team Xtina” shirt during the May finale in anticipation of Aguilera’s critique of his team’s performance.
