xtinalatina020912cover.jpgChristina Aguilera has said many times that she was both physically and emotionally abused by her father, but now she's ready to bury the hatchet with her estranged father.

When asked about her dad, Fausto, Xtina tells Latina magazine:

    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."

The 31-year-old songstress, who says she last saw her dad in 1999, adds:

    "Growing up I did not feel safe. Feeling powerless is the worst feeling in the world. I turned to singing as an outlet. The pain at home is where my love for music came from."

Aguilera's dad has denied the allegations of abuse.
