The world of online sports betting has grown much bigger than just gambling on sporting events. Part of the fun for gamblers these days is betting on some of the proposition bets that sports books offer regarding celebrities.
One of those proposition bets is which celebrity will be the next arrested. The bookmakers offer a variety of odds on different celebrities, and when one is arrested, the winning bettors are paid and everyone else loses. That cycle will now start again after Christina Aguilera was arrested early Tuesday.
Aguilera and boyfriend Matthew Rutler were both jailed Tuesday. Aguilera was charged with suspicion of public intoxication, and Rutler was charged with suspicion of driving under the influence. Aguilera was arrested at around 2:30 AM, and was released at 7:30 when she sobered up.
Rutler, however, was being held on $30,000 bail. Spokesman Steve Whitmore claims that no charges will be filed against Aguilera, and that she was simply being held in jail for her own safety. The arresting officer claims that Aguilera was extremely intoxicated.
Bettors who picked Aguilera will now collect their winnings, although she was not one of the celebrities with high odds. Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan have had the lowest odds in the past couple of months, with both being in trouble with the law on various occasions.
Aguilera has built a solid career off of her voice. This past February, Aguilera sang the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Although she made mistakes on some of the words, critics mainly praised the performance. Aguilera also performed a tribute to Aretha Franklin at the Grammy’s just a couple of weeks ago.
