Avril Lavigne to marry Nickelback star Chad Kroeger – after just 6 months!
People may still be talking about her split from Brody Jenner, but it seems that these days Avril Lavigne has well and truly moved on. Not only has news arisen that she is dating Nickelback star Chad Kroeger, but her rep has confirmed that after a six-month romance the couple are engaged. According to a source, a romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together on Avril’s new album.
Despite the ten year age gap between the two rock stars, it seems the couple have found love after coming together to co-write a song for Avril’s upcoming fifth album and the follow up to Goodbye Lullaby. They have confirmed the news themselves on Twitter, with Nickelback saying: ‘Congratulations Avril and Chad! Get all the details from @PeopleMag’. Avril, 27, then retweeted the message to her six million Twitter followers.
Kroeger, 37, is believed to have popped the question on August 8, with a 14-carat diamond ring. While she is a lot younger, it happens to be the second marriage for Grammy-nominee Avril. In July 2006, at the age of 21, she married Sum 41 lead man Deryck Whibley in a fairytale wedding. But, it was clearly not to be as she filed for divorce a little more than three years later.
She then moved on to Brody Jenner (Kim Kardashian’s stepbrother) and even got a tattoo of his name beneath her right breast before they split after two years together. All the while, Kroeger spent six years with Marianne Goriuk. We wish them the best of luck!
