Congratulations Deryck Wibley! You win for most utterly passive aggressive ex-husband ever. The Sum 41 singer evidently teamed up with a friend to go as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne and her new fiance, Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger. My guess? I bet Deryck and Avril had an exes with benefits thing going on, and then Chad stepped in and ruined the arrangement. Ah, Canadian drama.
While out and about in London, the future first lady of Canada bravely rocked an ensemble that included partially shaved My Little Pony hair, punk rock skull t-shirt, quilted leather jacket, jersey maxi skirt, bowler bag, and Tory Burch sandals. I have 100% worn this outfit to Walgreens to pick up cold medicine, so I get it, but for a nice dinner in London? Not so sure about this, Avril. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Lately I’ve been looking at my closet and feeling an overwhelming sense of “I have nothing to wear!” Luckily though, I just found the magical garment that will instantly fill the gaping void in my wardrobe: a Chavril engagement T-shirt, which celebrates the upcoming Canadian royal wedding of ChAvril LaKroeger, aka Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger. As the model illustrates, it goes perfectly with a heavy smear of black eyeliner and a punk rock attitude. Yep, this is definitely my new fall uniform. [$25, The Chavril Boutique]
Many of you will regard this as another sign of the end days, but here it is: Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne have recorded a duet and, according to L.A. Reid, it’s a “really good record” and set to be released “very soon.” As we all know, the First Couple of Canada met while working on Lavigne’s new album together. “When you are having a good time making a record that always comes across in music,” said Lavigne at the time. “The energy’s good so things flow better and that’s what I’m excited about.” Now that the musical fruits of their love will finally be available for public consumption, we all must ask ourselves: are we ready to hear it?

“You never know what your parents are going to say when you tell them you’re getting married — especially when it’s with someone they haven’t met yet! My mom is a huge fan of Avril’s, so putting her on the speaker phone and telling her the news was hilarious and equally embarrassing.”
–Nickelback frontman/Canadian dreamboat Chad Kroeger reveals to Hello! Canada that his parents hadn’t met Avril Lavigne prior to the couple’s surprise engagement. Other revelations from the ChAvril cover story? Apparently Chad has yet to visit Avril’s hometown of Napanee, Ontario, but is excited to make the trip and eat at her favorite pizzeria, while Avril is busy planning the wedding, which will be “a huge celebration.” If that ridiculously large rock on her finger is any indication, this wedding will be visible from space.

We were shocked and awed when we found out that Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger were some kind of crazy Canadian power couple. We were further stunned to find out Chadders gifted his ladyfriend with a ginormous crack rock of an engagement ring — featuring a 14-carat diamond that’s estimated to cost around $800,000. I guess it actually pays to be the most hated band in the world.
Above, we’ve gathered several items that weigh about as much as the stone in Avril’s ring. I hope she’s been doing finger exercises…
