Christina Aguilera thinks it is "time" to meet with her estranged father
The `Beautiful` hitmaker has been opened about her strained relationship with her parent Fausto - who she has previously said was physically and emotionally abusive - but thinks she is now ready to face the past.
Christina - who last saw her father in 1999 - 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."
Christina married Jordan Bratman - with who she has four-year-old son Max - in November 2005 but they split just under five years later, though the singer insists she wasn`t too young to settle down when she did.
She told the new issue of Latina magazine: "Was I too young? Not at all. I did the exact right thing at the time. .I definitely wasn`t too young. I have always been older than my age."
The blonde star - who shot to fame as a member of the `All New Mickey Mouse Club` aged just 13 - also admitted she was shocked when she realised she was no longer one of the younger people in the showbiz industry.
She said: "I was on the set of a film and the choreographer was 19 and I looked around at all the dancers and I was like, Whoa! I`m the oldest person in this room. When did that happen?"
