Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger are reportedly singing their swan song — the Canadian power couple are on the precipice of divorce, and an eyewitness source has revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the two haven’t been spotted together in a while.
Say it ain’t so! Avril Lavigne, 29, and Chad Kroeger, 39, are reportedly headed for divorce just one year after marrying on July 1, 2013. Remember that huge 17-carat rock that Chad gifted Avril with on their one-year anniversary? Well… when’s the last time you’ve seen them together? Exactly. HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVE details which sheds some light on their separate lives.
Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger To Divorce: Canadian Couple On The Verge Of Split
“It’s over,” a source revealed to Us Weekly in their latest issue. “Chad is just a complete jerk in the way he talks to her, and the way he talks to people in general. A lot of her friends don’t like him.”
However, while her friends’ condemnation of the Nickelback frontman is no clear indicator of trouble in paradise, the fact that they’ve not been seen out together in a while definitely is.
At the Chateau Marmont on Aug. 29, “Avril was partying with a bunch of her girlfriends,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com.” She wasn’t wearing the huge diamond rock her husband Chad gave her as a gift on their first wedding anniversary.
“She looked like she was having a fun time but it’s kind of strange because she hasn’t been out in public with Chad for some time now.”
Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger: ‘No Concrete Timeline For Divorce Right Now’
That said, the couple are not currently willing to give up on their marriage despite all signs indicating that the end is nigh: “There’s no concrete timeline for divorce right now,” revealed another source to Us Weekly.
This is Avril’s second marriage; she was previously married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley; they had been together since she was 19 years old and they married in July 2006. They announced their split in Sept. 2009.
Chad popped the question in Aug. 2012 after just a month of dating; could their whirlwind romance have gotten too serious too fast?
Either way, we’re sure that Avril and Chad will handle this in the most polite, amicable way possible. (Get it? Because they’re Canadian.)
