Avril Lavigne Talks About Her Split With Deryck Whibley

Avril Lavigne, who broke up with her husband of three years Deryck Whibley on Thursday, is opening up about the split  by posting about it on her MySpace blog.

In an entry entitled “Moving forward on a positive note,” the “Sk8er Boi” singer writes,

“Deryck and I have been together for 6 and a half years. We have been friends since I was 17, started dating when I was 19, and married when I was 21. I am grateful for our time together, and I am grateful and blessed for our remaining friendship. I admire Deryck and have a great amount of respect for him. He is the most amazing person I know and I love him with all my heart. Deryck and I are separating and moving forward on a positive note.

Thank you to all my family, friends and fans for all your support.


A pretty civilized assessment of the situation. Maybe she’s just relieved to be rid of Deryck?

Let us know in the comments section: Do you think that breaking up was the right thing for them to do, or should they have given their marriage another chance?
