There have been rumors about problems between Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger practically since they tied the knot that they were having problems. The rumors have been going on for so long, I was surprised when Avril announced their split yesterday: it seemed like they really were just rumors. So what happened?
A source close to Avril said:
Honestly, she’s doing OK. This has been in the works for awhile.”
The question, of course, is why the couple split after only two years of marriage.
According to the source, it was nothing dramatic: just life.
Avril is still sick, so she’s not working much—just here and there. It’s been a tough year. But these days, she’s living in L.A. and has a very close, supportive group of friends. She’s focused on her recovery but she knows it’s going to take time.
“They talked about having kids but it just never happened.
“Chad is being supportive. At the end of the day, they just didn’t see eye to eye on a lot of things… [and] their friends and their social circles never really mixed.
“They originally got together to make an album and that’s where the spark between them originated. But it just slowly died out.”
Perhaps they were a bit hasty in deciding to get married? The initial “spark” tends to die out for a lot of couples; if there’s nothing else to the relationship, then it’s not surprising that it will end. It’s also tough to build a solid foundation if both of you are traveling for work all the time, which is pretty much a necessity in the entertainment industry. Well, it sounds like the split is amicable, which is good. Neither Avril nor Chad needs a lot of drama right now.
