Now her family members are reaching out to the singer and The Voice USA judge, urging her to get in contact with them as her grandparents are said to be gravely ill.
In an interview with Star magazine, Christina’s uncle Johann Aguilera said they desperately want Christina and her son Max to see the family.
“Christina’s grandfather is 86 and her grandmother is 82. They have health issues,” Johann said.
“I don’t know how much longer they will last. Time is running out.”
Johann said Christina’s grandparents would be overjoyed to be back in contact with their granddaughter and great grandson.
“I know how much joy it would give my parents if she came back into our lives again. It would mean the world to them if they could see Christina before they die,” he said.
Earlier this year Christina suggested she and her father Fausto might be able to rebuild their relationship.
In an interview with Latina magazine she said: “I’ve talked about how rough things were for me and I’m sure he’s heard it. He can’t be thrilled about it. So maybe one day we can do lunch … I’m 31 years old now. Maybe it’s time.”
In a 2009 interview with E! Christina said she witnessed a lot of “unpleasant things” while growing up.
“Growing up I did not feel safe. Feeling powerless is the worst feeling in the world,” she said.
“I turned to singing as an outlet. The pain at home is where my love for music came from.”
Christina’s father has denied he abused Christina and her sister Rachel.
In 2002 the army sergeant said: “My relationship with her mother was tense and I wasn’t perfect. Shelly and I disagreed on a lot of things and we both had hot tempers. But I love Christina and her sister Rachel.
“I never abused them in any way and they know that.”
