RadarOnline claimed on Wednesday that they can “exclusively” reveal Christina Aguilera is pregnant with her third child (second with fiancé Matt Rutler), less than two months before she is scheduled to debut her Libration Tour.
But is she really pregnant, or is this shoddy journalism?
“She’s not just growing – she’s glowing!” a staff member at RadarOnline wrote about the 37-year-old. “There’s a good reason why pop star Christina Aguilera is looking a bit plumped up these days: She and fiancé Matt Rutler have a brand-new baby on board, RadarOnline.com can reveal exclusively.”
The article would seem like a legitimate source, if the writer had added more context. Instead, rather, that two-sentence paragraph is all readers were given.
On the other hand, the website mistakenly published the post to social media with the link title starting **HOLD UNTIL 8/1**, which suggests RadarOnline has held on to this information for a few days under an embargo from Christina’s team.
An embargo in journalism is when a source requests that the information they’ve given be withheld from the public until a specific time or date.
Populove reached out to Christina’s people for comment. We will update if we find out more.
Christina Aguilera’s Liberation Tour kicks off September 25 in Hollywood, Florida. If she is in fact pregnant, do you think she should cancel or postpone the tour? Is RadarOnline to be trusted?
