Lavigne and Whibley Separate


The story goes a little something like this: two Canadian youngsters find success as pop-punk stars. Girl (the suspenders-wearing, bad-attitude-having Avril Lavigne) meets sk8r boi (Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley). Girl and boi get married and live happily ever after . . . for three years. Then they separate, leaving us all to wonder: if those two crazy kids can't make it, who can?

Lavigne posted this statement on her Myspace page yesterday: "Deryck and I are separating and moving forward on a positive note. Thank you to all my family, friends and fans for all your support." This announcement validates the recent rumors that the two have been experiencing marital difficulties. The couple married in 2006 when Whibley was 26, and Lavigne just 21.

The two worked together on Lavigne's upcoming fourth album, and there may be a chance for future musical collaboration as Lavigne said that she and Whibley will remain friends.
