Images emerged yesterday of Christina Aguilera carrying her son, Max, through LAX airport, with Max sporting a big bruise around his right eye.
The website MediaTakeOut.com then published the photo with the headline, "CHILD ABUSE???? CHRISTINA AGUILERA'S SON IS PHOTO'D WITH A BLACK EYE!!!"
Needless to say, Christina was apparently furious.
Christina's lawyer, Eric Greenspan, is threatening to sue the website for these false allegations.
"Christina is a wonderful mother and was not present in the park when Max fell and hurt himself. To imply that she had something to do with this incident, without any investigation on your part whatsoever, is reckless and unconsolable," wrote Eric in the letter sent to the website, reports the Daily Mail.
"There are limits that any decent person should respect," Eric added.
Christina and Max were accompanied through the LAX terminal by Christina's boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, who was left carrying the bags while mum cradled and comforted her little boy.
Max's dad is Christina's former husband Jordan Bratman. The pair are on good terms for the sake of their son, who they make sure always comes first.
