Recent rumors of twenty-five year old French-Canadian rocker, singer, songwriter, model and designer Avril Lavigne and her Sum 41 band member husband Deryck Whibley divorcing have surfaced.
Rumors of the split are based entirely on lack of evidence as opposed to sources confirming the two are splitting. The rumors are based on lack of evidence because the two have not been photographed together since December 2008 and Avril has been seen lately gallivanting around nightclubs with her girlfriends.
Deryck Whibley attended the premiere of ‘Transformers’ without wife Avril on June 22, 2009 which led people to believe there is tension between the two. Meanwhile, Avril and her girlfriends went on vacation to Saint-Tropez for a week.
Most recently during a weekend in August, Avril was seen out and about partying and experiencing the nightlife in Southampton without husband Deryck. Now, a source ‘close to’ Avril said the rocker needed to get away and have a weekend to herself sans husband.
During this same weekend it has been reported that Avril was seen out and about with many male admirers hanging on her and partying with her. Another source says pictures from the night out between Avril and her male admirers were originally posted on a celebrity gossip site however have since been removed, leaving no trace or proof the accusations took place as said.
All the while, Deryck of Sum 41 has been helping produce Avril’s upcoming album which is due to be released November 17, 2009. The two met in 2004, were engaged in 2005 and Avril even tattooed a “D” in a small heart-shape for him.
Avril was named after the month ‘April’ which is Avril in French. Avril began her career touring with Shania Twain at age thirteen although she is not only a songwriter, rocker, model and designer she is also very involved in activism and philanthropy.
Avril currently is involved with charities such as Make Some Noise, Erase MS, Amnesty International, and War Child and Make-A-Wish Foundation. In fact as her contribution to Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur which was a compilation album, Avril re-recorded John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’.
The album was released in June of 2007. Let’s just hope Avril’s rumored split and divorce from husband of three years, Deryck will not affect her charitable ways at all.
