Avril Lavigne-Chad Kroeger

Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger

Feb 2012 - Sep 2015

 

Almost two years after finalizing her divorce from Deryck Whibley, Canadian punk rocker Avril Lavigne began dating Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger

It appears they met initially while working together on Avril's 2013 self-titled studio album Avril Lavigne. She would later go on to cover one of Kroeger's Nickleback songs, "How You Remind Me," for the animated film One Piece Film: Z.

10 years her senior, Kroeger was quick to lock things down with the "Sk8ter Boi" singer. He proposed marriage in August 2012 - just a month after they started dating.

The pair revealed details of the big moment in an interview with Ryan Seacrest the following year, saying that Chad had taken a photo of himself holding the engagement ring and placed it within a scrapbook Avril kept at the recording studio. Stickers were used to spell out the words "Will you marry me?" and the rest is history.

Appropriately enough, the Canucks tied the knot on July 1st, 2013 (that's Canada Day if you aren't familiar) at the Château de la Napoule in the south of France. 

The honeymoon phase began immediately with the newlyweds heading to Portofino, Italy for a little post-wedding celebration. 

Little more than a year following the wedding, rumors began swirling online of the impending demise set for Avril and Chad's relationship. 

Ever the gentleman, Kroeger put that gossip to rest - even joking with ET Canada about starting a new round of rumors that he was carrying the couples first child. 

Avril even came to her husbands defense in April 2015 when she opened up about her secret battle with Lyme disease.

"He's been very supportive," she told People. Going on to reveal that the sickness had left her bedridden for months.

Sadly, on September 2nd, 2015, Avril announced that she and Chad had separated. In the Instagram post she used to reveal their split, the punk rocker said that she and Chad were still the "best of friends."
