Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger to Divorce?
It looks like Canadian musicians Avril Lavigne
and Chad Kroeger will soon be the latest couple to join the long list of
short-lived celebrity marriages. The 30-year-old pop star married the
39-year-old Nickelback frontman in 2013 at an extravagant Goth-themed wedding,
and news of their alleged separation comes shortly after they celebrated one
year of marriage.
divorce began swirling when Avril mysteriously deleted a tweet she had
published praising her husband for the impressive “17
carat emerald cut” ring he gave
her for their one-year anniversary.
celebrity couples, Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger may have jumped too quickly into saying “I do.”
Their fast-paced relationship escalated to a formal engagement
after just one month of dating. However, Chad felt confident at the time in his
decision to propose so quickly: “It felt like the stars had aligned […] and that’s why I proposed in such a short time span – because we
wanted to start our lives together.”
Chad began seeing each other in 2012 when Avril was freshly single from the collapse
her two-year relationship with reality star Brody Jenner. Previously, the
‘Hello Kitty’ singer was wed to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley for three years
until their divorce in 2010.
Although no one should be too shocked by the news
of yet another celebrity divorce, the restrictive marriage rules that Avril and
Chad followed offer a heightened level of foreshadowing. In addition to never
going more than two weeks without seeing each other (which is an achievement
for a couple with such a busy lifestyle), they also insisted that they never
drank while apart. Chad told People
magazine: “We don’t want to go anywhere that you’re asking for trouble. This is
something we want to cherish and protect.”
However, with the couple’s marriage on the
rocks, Avril recently celebrated her 30th birthday without Chad and
without her wedding ring.
