The Canadian rocker shared this news with her fans yesterday with an Instagram post.
“It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today,” she wrote in the caption to an image of the two together on their wedding night. “Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we’ve created many unforgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support.”
Lavigne and Kroeger got married in 2013, after six months of dating, but have been plagued with rumours of a break up in the past year. A source told E! News that the couple were “fighting a lot” lately and that there was “jealousy on both sides.”
