Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger have decided to divorce after just 14 months of marriage. The news will be a shock to some who follow the pair on Twitter and Instagram. Just two months ago, the Nobody’s Home singer shared her gift from Kroeger on the social media sites. It was a beautiful emerald cut diamond ring.
According to sources close to the couple, Lavigne is fed up with the way that her husband is treating her. Kroeger has a habit of talking to people in a horrible way, and her friends do not like him. However, this just shows that friends seem to want the two to divorce. It does not show that they definitely are considering it.
The two have not spoken out about their marriage and divorce plans. One of the signs is reportedly that the Nickelback singer and his solo artist wife have not been spotted together for a while. Just a month ago, the Sk8ter Boi singer was spotted out with her friends without the 17-carat ring on her finger. It could be that she did not want to lose the ring or get it damaged while she was out. However, she has reportedly been spotted without her wedding ring on at all, suggesting that she wants out of the marriage.
It is possible that the two are not quite ready to give up on their marriage just yet. There are high chances that the two are trying to make it work. According to Us Weekly, there isn’t a “concrete timeline” for the divorce.
It has certainly been a whirlwind romance for the two. It could be that they were just not suited for each other and rushed into marriage. They were dating for a month when Kroeger proposed in August 2012. They married less than a year later, and have had the appearance of being happy ever since when in front of cameras.
The two met while they were collaborating on Lavigne’s track Let It Go. A source suggests that they were attracted to each other because they can work together so well. However, they may not have the same level of collaboration when it comes to their personal lives. Sources state that the two argue a lot behind closed doors, and it is taking its toll on both of them. They have also found that their work together is not doing as well as they wanted it to.
This will be the second divorce for the Canadian solo star if they do split. She was previously married to Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley. He is currently getting help for his alcohol addiction, and she has shared her support for him. They started dating when Lavigne was just 19, and married in 2006. They divorced three years later, as she reportedly did not feel supported as an artist. This was something that the Nickelback front man was able to offer.
However, it seems like there is trouble in paradise. After just 14 months of marriage, Lavigne and Kroeger could divorce.
