Christina Aguilera: friends want rehab

Christina Aguilera's friends want her to go to rehab.

TMZ reports that some of the singer's friends and business associates have been pleading with her for several months to get treatment for 'alcohol abuse'.

A source said: 'Maybe when she was married she was able to keep it under wraps, but it's out in the open now.'

They report that the singer has previously 'shut down' all attempts at rehab, prior to her arrest yesterday.
