Avril Lavigne the “Complicated” singer revealed that she had been staying out of the spotlight due to undisclosed health issues, rumors began swirling that she was actually struggling with an addiction of some sort.
Direct messages between the fan account and Avril were shared for the world to see, including, “I feel bad because I haven’t been able to say anything to the fans to let them no why I’ve been absent. I’m torn as I’m quite private…I’m not feeling well. I’m having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers.”
The account also tweeted messages that included, “#PrayForAvril” and “#GetWellSoonAvril.” The 30-year-old later responded with only a simple “thank you.” She’s also taken the time to respond to the kindness of fans, retweeting a get well message from a follower in Indonesia on Saturday, December 20, adding, “means so much to me. thank u.”
Her representative denied that she was not pregnant, but has not gone into details as far as what exactly the illness is. Her health issues come just a few months after speculation that her marriage of just over a year to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger was on the rocks. The 39-year-rocker laughed off the reports that were fueled when he missed her 30th birthday party, though he admitted that even his family was starting to worry, commenting, “’You know my dad calls me up and he’s just like, ‘I haven’t slept in two days, what’s going on?’ I’m like, ‘Dad you’re not buying all this c**p are you?’”
While it seems that all is well with their marriage, Avril’s health is still in question. Whatever the problem is, she says it definitely isn’t substance abuse. On Tuesday, the singer decided to address the rumors via Twitter, writing, “The rehab RUMORS are hilarious! The only thing I’m addicted to right now is Bing Crosby she wrote.
