Would You Stay Friends With Your Ex Like Avril Lavigne & Deryck Whibley?

They were married and now they’re divorced but they’re still friends! Could you do it?

Even if ’till death do you part’ doesn’t work out don’t worry you can always be friends! Avril Lavigne and Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley are still friends even though they  divorced after a three-year marriage in Oct. 2009. The two went to Madeo, an Italian restaurant in West Hollywood, and dined with two friends on Mar. 21. They had the burrata with tomato and mozzarella and penne Madeo for their man. After dinner Avril and Deryck hit up Tattoo Mania on Sunset Blvd  around 2:00 AM — no word if they got inked.

We would assume it’s super hard to remain friends with an ex — especially an ex-husband! But Deryck accompanied Avril to the Alice in Wonderland premiere in London Feb. 25 and he even helped her mix the movie’s theme song “Alice” along with her upcoming fourth studio album, Pink Crust. She told Ryan Seacrest on his morning show that, “He’s one of my best friends. We’ve been friends for a really long time, and we will always be. We’re family and we have a connection.”

Avril was recently reportedly dating Brody Jenner … we wonder how he feels about the two hanging out!
