Avril Lavigne took to Instagram today to share some sad news: After two years of marriage, she and Chad Kroeger of Nickelback are separating. It is an amicable separation, and hopefully both will be happy in the next chapters of their lives. Read her announcement, via Instagram, below:
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.
This marks Avril’s second divorce. She was previously married to Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley from 2006 until 2009, when they first announced their separation. Their divorce was finalized a year later.
Earlier this year, Avril revealed that she has Lyme Disease. She believes she caught the disease around April 2014, and she was bedridden for five months as she went through the worst of it.
Meanwhile, Avril is working on a new album. It is possible her separation from Chad will influence her new music. Her last divorce, from Deryck Whibley, resulted in the somber Goodbye Lullaby, and it’s possible the new split could have similar influences. It is still too early to tell, but hopefully Avril is inspired and ready to channel this negative energy into good songs.
