Christina finally opened up about her father, Fausto, in a television documentary. She tells of how the U.S. Army sergeant made her life hell.
She tells E!, “I witnessed a lot of unpleasant things – a lot of pushing and shoving and fighting and quarrelling. Growing up I did not feel safe. Feeling powerless is the worst feeling in the world. I turned to singing as an outlet. The pain at home is where my love for music came from.”
Christina Aguilera’s mother, Shelly, discusses the abuse in the documentary, recalling one incident when she found Christina, 4, with blood dripping from her chin. Christina’s mother says, “I scooped her up and said, ‘Oh my God. What’s wrong?’ She told me, ‘Daddy wanted to take a nap and I made too much noise.’”
Aguilera’s mother eventually left abusive husband, taking her daughters to live with their grandmother.
Christina’s father has since begged forgiveness but she has no desire to have a relationship with him, adding, “I let him back into my life briefly but I soon realized that he is not necessary in my life.”
