Did Canada’s sweethearts Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger marry in France?

May I present to you… the First Gentleman and First Lady of Canada! Yes, Canadian Sweethearts Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger allegedly got married this weekend in France, although People Mag is saying the initial reports of the wedding are false. I do know they’re in France right now, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they had gotten married or were about to. I don’t know why they didn’t get married in Canada. Surely it would have been treated as a national holiday in Canada? I jest! I do not blame Canadians for Chad and Avril (although I do blame Canada for Justin Bieber, so go figure). Chad and Avril got together…? I want to say it’s been about a year and a half. They got engaged last August. And now they’re married. It’s her second marriage and his first (although he had some kind of common-law thing with an ex-girlfriend and he had to make a settlement with her when they broke up). Here’s more about the (alleged) wedding:

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger just rocked down the aisle in the South of France, a source confirms to E! News.

After getting engaged last August, the 28-year-old pop-punk princess and her 38-year-old Nickleback-singer beau tied the knot in what Lavigne had promised would be a “crazy and colorful” theme-wedding on the continent.

“We want it to be unique and special and we want it to be a very big event but at the same time it’s small and it’s just close friends and close family,” Lavigne told E! News about the Canadian lovebirds’ wedding plans last month at the Billboard Music awards.

“Of course [Chad] has been really involved,” she continued. “He’s also been really cool with just letting me kinda taking the wedding in the direction I want to take it in.”

Kroeger, for his part, wisely deferred to his ladylove. “I sit back and I take a lot of the things that are presented to me, and I look at them on paper, and when I’m asked my opinion, I offer it very gently. That’s the smartest thing I can possibly do because that big day is not about me. That big day is about her.”

You can see some photos here of Avril in the South of France – the Mail is acting like the photos are from just before the wedding, but I think they might be from the rehearsal dinner or something. She’s wearing a little green dress and UGGS. And a crown. So… maybe that’s what she wore to her wedding? God knows. Anyway, congrats to Chad and Avril. This should be a glorious mess when it falls apart, but I’m thinking Avril and Chad will keep it together long enough to have at least one baby, don’t you think?

    I like how her hair is the exact same style in every picture.

    • SunnySide says:

      They will probably get married tomorrow- on Canada Day. They made a big deal about how they got together on Canada Day in their engagement article so I’d bet money they will tie the knot on their “anniversary”.

      She really does have bad hair!

  2. TPOE says:

    As a Canadian, these two offend me.

    • Candace says:

      Agree! Ugh.

    • someone says:

      as a canadian temporarily living in france, i can’t believe i’m actually saying this but, they should go back to canada. yuck. or just move to an abandoned island.

    • aims says:

      what a cheesy couple. She’s a snot nose bitch, and he a jackass. They’re made for each other, now the bad rock ballads will be assaulting our ears. Awesome!

      • No moreJennifers says:

        Amen! They are not the pride and joy of Canada. Their combined music is just terrible!

    • Ev says:


    • Danielle says:

      YES! i had to skip the article just to say these two offend me, and to add first gentleman and lady of Canada….BLEHHHHHH

    • Ruffian9 says:

      NOT Canada’s ‘sweethearts’. No way, no how.

  3. Meredith says:

    Best of luck to them. But OMG I do not like her taste in clothes.

  4. UghInsomnia says:

    Ugh, these two. Congrats, I guess. If they procreate, I hope their poor baby doesn’t only have clothes from the baby section of Hot Topic.

  5. serena says:

    Dear god what tremendous make-up..and she styles herself like a 16 years old.. ugh. Besides that, he seems ‘a little’ more mature than her, so I hope that this marriage will last longer than her previous.

  6. MsAubra says:

    they’re cute lol

  7. Jaded says:

    As a Canadian, I apologize for inflicting these two upon the world.

    • Granger says:

      Me too! I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!

    • brin says:

      Hey, we all have one (or 150)…please accept my apology for the K klan.

      • Hubbahun says:

        Please accept mine for Katie Price, Coldplay and (because she thinks she’s british) Gwyneth. Oh and of course, One Direction. **hides head in shame**

        p.s. What in the Sam Hell is that thing on Chad Gruesome’s chin?

      • Spooks says:

        I beg your pardon, Coldplay is awesome. And those 1D boys sing rubbish music, but they seem really nice, unlike Bieber brat.

      • aims says:

        I will take your apology regarding Katie Price, and Gwyneth is a joint problem. I do like Coldplay(they give a good concert.)

        Those One Direction boys are harmless, cute, no doubt, but harmless.

  8. PrairieGirl says:

    Monday’s a national holiday in Canada anyway … But may I remind everyone that Avril, Bieber and Nickleback did NOT build their careers in Canada – their breakthrough successes came from the United States and international audiences on YouTube. So do NOT lay this at Canadians’ feet. Do not. (I’ll TOTALLY apologize for Celine Dion though. We did that.)

  9. SmokeyBlues says:

    All I can picture is that Avril is probably the kind if bride to throw a tantrum on her wedding day, like you see on Bridezillas. Good luck with that one, Chad.

  10. Spooks says:

    These two are so trashy and cute. I don’t like their music, but I like them together.

  11. Dave says:

    I think it’s pretty unfair to Canadians to call these two ‘Canada’s sweethearts’ just because they’re both raging douchebags who both happen to be Canadian and claim their anniversary is Canada Day just to hit the douche trifecta. Poor Canadians.

  12. Sophie says:


  13. Tony says:

    She’s such an immature little brat.

  14. Renee says:

    While Brittney and Xtina were stripping in their trashy music videos, at least then teenage Avril was fully clothed. As a Mom I really did appreciate that.

  15. brin says:

    The reception is going to be a mess with all the spitting.

    • Arock says:

      And will smell like axe body spray. On the upside everyone parted with the gift of a barbwire arm tattoo or a hello kitty flask.

  16. Hollz says:

    According to the DM link, the photos of her in the green dress and uggs are from her upcoming video.
    I seriously doubt these two will get married outside of Canada.

    I like the dress…and like the uggs better then the fug red heels!

  17. tjf says:

    dear lord, please let them move away and no longer claim to be Canadian. such poor representatives of our fine land. ugh. just ugh.

  18. Lemony says:

    Such a handsome couple ;)

  19. ThatGirl says:

    The pics on the Daily Mail are from a video she was filming the day following the (alleged) wedding, not from the wedding or rehearsal – they state that in the article if you read it.

  20. Laura says:

    I think they are a perfectly suited couple and might even last, why not. They both are kind of musically one dimensional, and that’s part of the reason they’re well matched.I wish them well. :-)

  21. Violet says:

    Someone on one of the other sites described Chad’s head as looking like pineapple and I can’t not see that now, lol.

    I’m surprised they kept this private, it would’ve been fun to see the hot mess Avril came up with. I picture some gothic/punk mess with a 80s vibe.

    I think she’s still in love with Brody, but clearly more in love with the idea of being married — a step he wasn’t ready to take, according to rumor — and latched onto the next guy that came along, which was Mr Pineapple.

  22. Jennifer12 says:

    I couldn’t think of Taylor Momsen’s name until another poster said it, but that’s exactly who Avril reminds me of. ENews WOULD think she’s a punk. Gawd. As a New Yorker, please allow me to apologize for Taylor Momsen.

  23. xxx says:

    Gross. Just gross. Her image needs some serious updating and his hair is revolting. That chin hair is just foul.

  24. bored_01 says:

    Aurgh no. We (canadians) don’t wn them either…

  25. allons-y alonso says:

    Oh, God. Imagine if they did a musical (and i use the term loosely) collaboration. Below is a segment from a radio station here in Aus that chronicled the ‘A-Z of s**t music’. Enjoy N for Nickleback!


  26. Madriani's Girl says:

    Any respect I had for this guy (I had none) went out the window when I read his interview where he said he can, and has, sucked his own d*ck. Bye bye.

    And I never got her at all. She can’t sing and she is about as far from edgy as one can get and still be in the hemisphere, yet she is described as a “rebelious rocker”.

  27. Maxilius says:

    As a Canadian ( on Canada Day, no less )

    I am offended by you referring to them as ” Canada’s sweethearts. ”

    No one likes them here. No one.

    America can have them, good riddance, keep them out of our country.
