One night after the club closes, Tess, worried with the club's economic prospects, sings "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me".
A very jealous Nikki shows up drunk and picks a fight with Tess, calling Ali a "slut with mutant lungs" and feels that Tess has rejected their long-term friendship for Ali.
Her former set assistant's mother sure doesn't think that is the case.
Sources have contacted Kathleen Rutler, who is the mother of Matthew Rutler, who is the alleged lover of divorcee Christina Aguilera to get some confirmation on their supposed romantic relationship. Kathleen told sources that as far as she knows, her son and Xtina are "absolutely not dating" and are just "friends." She admits that her son has told her that "Christina needs a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen to her problems," and that is exactly what he's doing for her, nothing more.
The song "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me", penned by Diane Warren and sung by Cher, won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in 2011, while the film was nominated for the Golden Globe Award in the Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy category. Ali Rose (Aguilera) moves to Los Angeles after she quits her bar job when her boss refuses to pay her. A., she tries and fails at every audition she does until one night, she finds herself unknowingly in a burlesque club when she hears the music on the street.

Angered, Nikki quits on the spot (before falsely claiming that she slept with Vince after his and Tess's honeymoon), and the altercation ends when Tess angrily retaliates by smashing the passenger side window on Nikki's convertible with a crowbar.
Meanwhile, Ali and Jack become romantically attracted to each other.
However, Jack is unable to act on his growing feelings for Ali due to his engagement to his girlfriend, who is away in New York City for work as an actress.
Marcus begins to become increasingly infatuated with Ali, who begins to spend time with him, making Jack jealous.
While making coffee, Ali receives a call from Marcus, and Sean prompts her to go with Marcus after his phone call, while Sean and Mark (the DJ) go on a date.
While spending time with Marcus, Ali learns about "air rights", which refers to the empty space above a building and what can be done with it.
Jack denies this, and while trying to fix things, he asks Ali to leave.
