Are Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger headed for a split?! For the last few months, that’s been the story circulating, and for the first time, the Nickelback frontman is addressing the rumors. And, while it seems he’s laughing off the media attention, Chad never flat-out denies reports that his marriage is in shambles.
“My dad calls me up and he’s like, ‘I haven’t slept in two days! What’s going on?'” the singer told ET Canada. “And I’m like, ‘Dad, you’re not buying all this crap are you?’ It’s very amusing.”
In September, just over a year after their wedding, reports surfaced that there was trouble in paradise for Avril and Chad. This was intensified by their lack of affection for one another on social media, as well as the fact that the singer celebrated her 30th birthday without her hubby by her side.
They’ve also both been spotted without their wedding rings (although, Chad was wearing his for the interview). “You know what, they come off! And they go back on,” he explained.
Avril is also still wearing the giant anniversary ring her husband bought her, but the Instagram she posted gushing about the gift has been deleted.
