Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger May Be Headed for Divorce Already

Avril Lavigne, Chad KroegerIt looks like another celebrity couple may be headed for splitsville, as divorce rumors swirl around Canadian rockers Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger. They've been married just over a year, but apparently things are so bad that the Nickelback frontman has been "going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing." A source told Us Weekly, "It's over," yet neither star has commented on the speculation.

The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony with just 50 guests in the South of France in July 2013. For their first anniversary this summer, Kroeger gifted his bride with a 17-carat emerald cut diamond ring, and upgrade from her 14-carat engagement ring. "Wow. I love my hubby," Lavigne gushed on Twitter at the time.


Despite the stunner of an anniversary present, sources say there's been trouble in paradise for the pair for awhile.

A source told E! News that they've been "fighting a lot" and "having a lot of issues."

The insider revealed, "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 "Sk8er Boi" singer was married to Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley from 2006 to 2010, and dated Brody Jenner for two years before they finally broke up in January 2012. She's also been romantically linked to Wilmer Valderrama.

When her latest album tanked, the source said, "They're finding that they're not seeing eye to eye on a lot of things." They also confessed, "There's jealousy on both sides. She flirts, he flirts. She's very insecure to begin with."

Whoa. That sort of makes sense though, given what Kroeger said last fall to People magazine. He revealed, "We don't drink when we're apart. We don't want to go anywhere that you're asking for trouble. This is something we want to cherish and protect."

It seems as though there might be a trust issue at the heart of all of it. It's gotta be tough when you're in a look-at-me industry, yet still trying to keep those intimate relationships alive.

Hopefully these two will be able to work it out, and despite the rumors that Kroeger is telling people they're divorcing, another source close to the couple has said that's an "ultimate last resort," and "they're going to try to work it out."
