Christina Aguilera Tends to Bruised-Up Max at LAX Airport

Gently carrying her seemingly injured young son, Christina Aguilera toted little Max Bratman while joined by boyfriend Matthew Rutler in catching a flight out of LAX Airport in Los Angeles on Tuesday (August 23).

The "Genie In a Bottle" singer immediately covered her boy up with a blanket upon exiting their vehicle, though pictures taken at the security checkpoint show Max having a bit of a shiner underneath his right eye.

The out of town travels come as Miss Aguilera's slated performance at an October tribute concert to Michael Jackson is up in the air due to protests over the "Michael Forever" event.

According to Rolling Stone, a group with pull has “criticizied the timing of the show, which coincides with the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Jackson, and expressed confusion over the event’s charitable donations and high ticket prices."
