Avril Lavigne’s ex husband hospitalised

Frightening news this morning as it is revealed that Avril Lavigne’s ex husband, Deryck Whibley was hospitalised for over a month due to excess drinking.

The Sum 41 singer wrote on his website that his liver and kidneys had collapsed due to all the years of hard drinking he had been doing: “I was drinking hard every day … I then collapsed to the ground unconscious.”

Deryck (34) was sedated for a week in the hospital following his collapse.

The singer now says he wants to share his experience with his fans to show the dangers of drinking too much alcohol: “I’m not preaching or anything but just drink responsibly. I didn’t and look where it got me.”

He was also told by doctors that if he had one more drink, he could die: “If I have one drink, the doc’s say I will die.”

Deryck posted some frightening pictures of himself in the hospital so show the perils of drinking too much alcohol.

Deryck was married to Avril Lavigne in 2006 but the pair parted ways in 2009 with a divorce finalised in 2010. Avril is now married to Nickelback singer, Chad Kroeger.
