Avril Lavigne engaged to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger


Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger are engaged.

A spokesman confirmed that the couple got engaged earlier this month according to the BBC.

Lavigne, 27, was previously married to Sum41's Deryck Whibley, but they divorced after three years in 2009.

Kroeger, who is ten years senior to Lavigne, has not been married before.

The couple have been dating for six months.

Canadian-born Lavigne broke onto the music scene aged 17 with her debut album Let Go, garnering hits "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi".

Kroeger, also from Canada, has been singing and playing guitar with Nickelback since 1995.
