She celebrated her marriage with her boyfriend, Deryck Whibley, a member of the well-known group, Sum 41, was friends with Avril 2 years prior to their romantic relationship, which began in 2003. Deryck attributed Avril for keeping him off drugs, as he was an avid cocaine user and drug abuser. Avril stated that she would not tolerate any drug use as she is dead set against the use of any drugs, proudly continuing on to state that she has never used drugs herself. He remained clean during their marriage and gave Avril the credit for it. In 2005, on a trip to Venice, Deryck proposed to Avril and she accepted. Mr. Deryck Whibley and Avril Lavigne were married on July 15th, 2006. With a little known fact that he took on her last name; becoming Deryck Jackson Lavigne Whitley. There were many issues with the marriage; Deryck wanting children and Avril wanting to date others boys. Many close friends of the couple stated that, after three years of marriage, the romance broke down because they were both very young, when they tied the knot and they seemed to have wanted different things. Avril filed for divorce in 2009 and it took a year to get divorce. It was an amicable divorce, and both parties spoke highly of each other, despite the break up.

By 2012, she was well on her way and began dating Canadian rock star, Chad Kroeger, from the band, Nickleback. Avril and Chad were engaged shortly after. They began their romance, while working on her fifth album. They got engaged in the late summer of 2012, with wedding plans, for the next summer in the South of France on July 1st, 2013. It can be assumed that the Canadians were commemorating their origins to choose that particular date, as it was Canada day. The lavish wedding was held at Chateau de la Napoule, a Medieval Castle. They then honeymooned in Portofino, Italy. Their relationship seems to have rules that they abided by, given their extremely busy schedules. They agreed that they will not spend more than two weeks apart. Avril goes onto say that “when you have someone special in your life, you do not want to take them for granted.” Their seemingly normal rules, also include that when they are apart, they will not drink alcohol or go out to clubs as this may put undue stress on the marriage. This being Chad’s first marriage and Avril’s second, Avril seems to have learned from her previous marriage. Her net worth is pegged at $45 million.
