This is one story that I really, really hope is not true. Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley, from the band SUM 41, got married some time ago and although they keep a low profile, they have always seemed to be oh-so-happy and the two punksters just seemed to be cut from the same cloth, perfectly suited for each other. Now, it seems that the little green monster may have taken Deryckover as he sees how awesome his wife’s career is and how non-existent his own is. From Digital Spy,
“Avril Lavigne is close to splitting from husband Deryck Whibley, reports say.
According to the National Enquirer, the pair have been growing apart since Lavigne embarked on her world tour earlier this year.
Whibley was recently seen holding the hand of an unknown woman at a nightclub in Los Angeles.
“Deryck isn’t motivated in his own career, so he’s been drinking and partying,” said a source.
Lavigne commented earlier this year that her marriage to Whibley is strong, despite her touring schedule.
“We email and talk on the phone. I’m always on my BlackBerry… He comes out and visits. I was just in Europe and he came out for two weeks at the beginning of the tour and two weeks at the end of the tour,” she said.”
I’m really hoping that this is one story that the Enquirer has wrong. I guess we’ll have to wait and see and it does make me question it a bit that we would just be hearing about this now when supposedly the problems started early in the year. I know they try to stay out of the spotlight but they are still celebrities and no matter how hard they may try, we will always find out. Hopefully, we’ll soon hear about how false this is but beware if you all of a sudden see them out and about looking all cuddly-cozy. That seems to be the major MO lately of stars that are on the road to Splitsville.
