lavigne jenner getty Avril Lavigne, Brody Jenner slam break up rumorsJust hours after Us Magazine reported that pop star Avril Lavigne and boyfriend Brody Jenner had broken up, the couple are lashing out at the publication. The two are saying they’re very much together.

On Tuesday (Jan. 17), Jenner writes on Twitter, “It really upsets me to read all the FALSE!! stories. Avril has always been there for me and is the closest person to my heart. I love her.” And to prove this isn’t just a one way street, Lavigne retweeted Jenner’s message and then adds her own message saying, “luv u 2!!!”

On Monday (Jan. 16), Us Magazine cited an unnamed source saying the couple had split. The source tells the publication, “Every time he wanted to come back and take meetings to get his career back in order, she would make him go to Asia and Europe.”

“He hasn’t worked and he wants to. They were both unhappy because he wants to have his career, she wants him to stay with her,” the source adds.

The couple began dating in spring 2010 and appear to be going strong.
