Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger have gone their separate ways.
Lavigne, 30, announced her marriage to the 40-year-old Nickelback singer was over on Instagram.
There have been rumors swirling for quite some time now that the couple’s marriage was in trouble. Avril and Chad denied the reports.
Avril confirmed their split, writing, “It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today. Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we’ve created many unforgettable moments.
“We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support.”
She shared a photo of their wedding in France along with the announcement.
In September 2014, a source revealed the couple had been at odds.
The insider said, “The main issue is this: When they met, they were in work mode. They were doing a collaboration and that’s where the attraction stemmed from. She was in the studio and he was producing her.
“She was also coming off some bad relationships where she didn’t really feel appreciated as an artist. She felt she and Chad connected on that level.”
The When You’re Gone hit singer has been battling Lyme Disease and has credited Chad with helping her through her medical issues.
She told ABC News in June that she was diagnosed with the disease while on tour in 2014, but that she was getting better.
She said, “I’m about halfway through my treatment. I’m doing a lot better. Seeing a lot of progress. … I’m just really grateful to know that, like, I will make [a] 100 percent recovery.”
Avril and Chad’s split announcement comes just days after her ex-husband, Deryck Whibley tied the knot with Ariana Cooper in Los Angeles.
