He tied the wedding knot with musician Shelly Loraine in 1980

The couple had to move to several places, including New Jersey, Texas, Japan, and New York, because of his military service. 

For Shelly, the problem between them started right after their marriage, and she became a sort of possession rather than a wife. They ended their marriage in 1987

What led their union to fall apart?

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Christina confronted that her father Fausto was physically and emotionally abusive towards her mom, which made her feel disgusting about him and his behavior towards women. 

Later, in an interview with E!, she added witnessing a messy environment full of quarreling, pushing, and fighting, which made her feel unsafe while growing up. 

The pain at home gave birth to a love for music. Despite his abusive behaviors, Shelly was trying to save her marriage until a final stroke when he left four-year-old Christina in blood after trying to spank her that got missed just because she made a noise while he was taking a nap. 

Finally, she made the courage to leave him for the security of her kids. Later she remarried her second husband, Jim Kearns, in 1991, with whom she shares a son Michael Kearns.

Her daughter on her childhood and how she is still traumatized by the past physical abuse her mother endured 

Christina has been outspoken about growing up in an abusive household and the physical abuse her mother endured from her father. 

While appearing on the Kelly Clarkson show back in 2020, she described her childhood to be chaotic, with lots of moving from one place to another. 

Since her father was in the army, there was a lot of shifting. They lived in Japan for three years. 

Christina, while appearing on the “Call her daddy” podcast, said while they were in Japan, they were super isolated. 

She recalled hearing abuse just happening on the other side of the wall but not getting the help that was needed even after calling the authorities, which according to her, is terrifying. 

It was during that time she started singing to herself. 

She will always remember the image of her singing out of the window, just like there is hope on the other side. 

At an early age, she felt that there was something on the other side, a bigger world, a bigger purpose on the other side. It’s like a core memory, she said.

She, even at this age, has not been able to heal from the trauma of seeing her mom being abused by her father. She said,

”Having so much compassion for my mother and seeing someone you love being hurt, I still, at 42, affected by it. It’s under the surface. Trauma never leaves you”.

According to her, it’s therapeutic to speak about it, having seen her mom going through so much that it instilled a level of purpose for her to empower other people and people in situations where they feel voiceless and unheard. 

She also confessed to doing a lot of healing and releasing a lot of energy that comes in the form of shame and anger, explaining that it takes a lot of time in the healing process, especially for the woman. 

The past incident has made her more protective of her own kids, especially her daughter Summer Rain, she said. 

“It’s why I am so adamant with my daughter. I am just like, the first time somebody ever hits you, the first time somebody makes you feel not right about yourself- I am so protective, Mama Bear, she added.
