Speculation that Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne are headed for divorce has been rife in recent months.
While both have been pictured minus their wedding rings however, Nickelback frontman Chad has finally set the story straight.
Appearing on Entertainment Tonight Canada, the singer rubbished claims that his marriage is in trouble.
“You know, I get to hear all the rumour mill stuff. I find it very amusing,” said the 39-year-old.
It seems that even the couple’s family have been affected by the constant speculation, with Chad admitting that his father grew concerned for the state of his marriage to the Complicated singer.
“You know my dad calls me up and he’s just like, ‘I haven’t slept in two days, what’s going on?’” said Chad, adding, “I’m like, ‘Dad, you’re not buying all this crap, are you?’”
Kroeger started dating Lavigne back in 2012, after working with her on her fifth album. The couple got engaged after one month of dating, going on to tie the knot in a French castle in July 2013.
