All my Xtina stans get in here and lets discuss: Do you think her relationship with Matt is the problem?

I mean, she was drunk but HE was the designated driver, since she doesn't drive (and arresting someone for being simply drunk? C'mon now, if Pink thinks THIS is what makes a "troublemaker" no wonder her try-hard "I'm tough, I AM" antics are so laughable). And we know the promo issues with Bionic were mostly due to her marriage falling apart.

So...do we think he's the Kevin Federline of it all? Or is she just sick of being the media's whipping girl and not being recognized when she puts out more challenging and higher quality music than any of the other pop girls?
