Back in January, Brody and Avril were still totally in love. When breakup rumors spread, he tweeted, “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.”
Not for long. According to sources at People, Avril and Chad made a romantic connection while writing music in February. A song they wrote together is featured on Avril’s upcoming fifth album. He popped the question with a 14-karat ring on August 8th.
The announcement was — coincidentally or not-so-coincidentally — made on Brody’s 29th birthday, which he spent barbecuing in LA with pals.
This will be Lavigne’s second marriage; she was previously married to
Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley for 3 years. They split in 2009.
