Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger are divorcing
Tragedy has befallen us. Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger are splitting up. The much-anticipated "Nickelback featuring Avril Lavigne" album may never happen. Why, God? Why must you be so vengeful? From Us Weekly
"It's over," a source tells Us. "He has been going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing."
Kroeger, 39, popped the question to Lavigne, 29, in August 2012 after dating for a month. They wed in an intimate ceremony in the South of France in July 2013. Despite their troubles, the couple have yet to hint about a strain in their relationship in public. In July, the Canadian singer gushed via Twitter about the 17-carat emerald-cut ring Kroeger gifted her for their first wedding anniversary.
I just hope this doesn't affect Nickelback's next album. Literally tens of fans would be emotionally crushed, unable to cope with the perceived burden of daily life. These two need to work things out or they're gonna be forced to bear that responsibility.*10 Avril Lavigne pictures total in the gallery:
Avril Lavigne leaving the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood
Perhaps to dull the pain that comes with being married to the frontman of Nickelback, Avril Lavigne got so drunk at the Chateau Marmont last Friday that she had to be carried out of the hotel by her friends. Nice. I've had some intense nights of drinking in my day, but even I've never woken up the next morning and needed an exorcism. Avril Lavigne is a fucking bad ass.*15 Avril Lavigne pictures total in the gallery:
Avril Lavigne's new, practical ring
Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger have too much money. For their one year anniversary, he bought her a 17-carat diamond ring -- 3 carats bigger than her engagement ring. Chad was going to just take Avril out for a nice romantic dinner, but then he remembered that he's the lead singer of Nickelback. You have to make up for that somehow. What a burden.

Hello Kitty. Lots and lots of Hello Kitty. *shudders* Via Contact Music
Avril Lavigne's Hello Kitty obsession is quickly taking over her house - she has filled three rooms full of cute memorabilia. The pop punk has been collecting soft toys and keepsakes of the Japanese bobtail cat cartoon from her travels around the world for years, but she's struggling to contain her vast collection and she's starting to feel sorry for her new husband, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger.
She tells U.S. talk show host Katie Couric, "Chad has been so kind because... one room turned into two rooms and now I'm working on a third, literally I have three Hello Kitty rooms and I just turned the office into pink everywhere..."
Hello Kitty? My God, Avril is such a poser. Isn't she supposed to be some sort of punk rock rebel who plays by her own rules? Let me just set the record straight: owning Hello Kitty merchandise when you're a five-year-old girl is adorable, but owning Hello Kitty merchandise as a 29-year-old makes you a full-blown sociopath. Owning three rooms full of that garbage when you're 29-years-old is detestable and should be punishable by being forced to carpool with Chris Brown. Between her obsession with mass-produced children's toys and her love of bland, cookie-cutter "rock" stars, I'm starting to think that Avril is as edgy as a sandwich bag full of diarrhea -- which coincidentally is the name of her new album. Look for A Sandwich Bag Full of Diarrhea

If Nickelback's Chad Kroeger is impressed this much by Avril Lavigne, how much must he suck? Trick question. The answer is "a lot." Via Contact Music
Chad Kroeger says working with fiancee Avril Lavigne is "like taking a bazooka to a knife fight!" The Nickelback singer worked with the 'What The Hell' singer on tracks for her fifth album - a relationship that proved so fruitful it has led to them becoming engaged - and was blown away by her vocal ability from the start.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It's easier to write for somebody who has got a vocal range like she's got. It's ridiculous how high she can go. She just opens up her throat and it goes higher and higher - and it's amazing, it's like taking a bazooka to a knife fight!"
Yeah, working with Avril is like bringing a bazooka to a knife fight, assuming of course that the bazooka shoots poser douchebaggery and calls it music. Good God, even using the phrase "bazooka to a knife fight" makes me cringe with embarrassment. Chad and Avril's soft rock horseshit are so similarly bland that they really are meant for each other. If we all got together and crowned them "Super Rock Couple of the Century," can we go ahead and deport them back to Canada or Afghanistan or wherever the hell we won't hear from them again? Anywhere except America is fine with me.*25 Avril Lavigne bikini pictures total in the gallery:

I didn't even know these two were dating, but Avril Lavigne is now engaged to Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. It's a match made in shitty music heaven. If they have a daughter, she'll sound just like Rebecca Black
. From People
Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth studio album. "A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a Lavigne pal tells People.
On Aug. 8, Kroeger popped the question, presenting Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler. "He makes her so happy," a family source tells PEOPLE. "Both of their families could not be more excited."
This is a gift from the poseur gods. Avril Lavigne, the queen of the pseudo punk movement, is marrying the guy who's such a non-rock guy that even Kid Rock gets the douche chills when his music comes on. Chris Daughtry has better musical cred than this hack. I'll admit that a union between Avril and Chad will be great for me personally, but is this what passes for news in Canada these days? I think America might want to reexamine our relationship with our maple syrup-slurping neighbors to the north. I'll admit that Canada has come through for us in the past with Pamela Anderson and their excellent ginger ale, but they've also given us Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette. Canada, consider yourselves on double secret probation.*10 Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger pictures total in the gallery:

Avril Lavigne did an interview with Extra
at The Grove in Hollywood yesterday -- which, mind you, will air on television, and she made sure to wear her finest "FUCK" necklace. Societal rules? Hah! Avril Lavigne laughs at your societal rules!

Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner split up
One of the great love affairs of our time is over. Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne have split up. I know, right? If they couldn't make it, there's literally no chance for the rest of us. From Life & Style
"They decided to end their relationship," a source tells Life & Style. "It wasn't working out, and they wanted to go their separate ways."
According to friends, the main reason is that they didn't see eye to eye when it came to marriage.
"She wanted to settle down, but he wasn't exactly ready," another source tells Life & Style. "They had been having problems starting in the summer with her tour because she was on the road all the time. It put a strain on their relationship."
Avril Lavigne and Brody Kardashian are no longer an item? I wish I could be the first person to say "well woopty damn do," but that honor belongs to everyone who heard about the break-up. This union probably wasn't the out-and-out fraud that was the Kim Kardashian fiasco, but it was definitely a desperate publicity agent's wet dream. Avril, enough with the phony relationships, get back in the studio and make music that sucks less.*11 Avril Lavigne pictures total in the gallery:
