Here’s her Instagram post:
It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today. 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.
The couple married in July 2013, and rumors started about a year later that they were having marital problems. Both have been dealing with health issues: Avril has been battling with Lyme Disease while Chad recently had a cyst on his vocal chords removed. Nickelback was forced to cancel the rest of their tour dates for 2015 so he could fully recover from the surgery.
It’s tough to make a marriage work in the entertainment industry! This is Avril’s second marriage; she split from Deryck Whibley in 2009.
