Avril Lavigne has been having a bit of a rough time lately. Her marriage to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger is apparently in trouble and according to some private messages she shared with a fan earlier this month, she’s been experiencing some undisclosed “health issues”:
Huh. Sounds pretty serious, eh? Well, according to some reports, the “health issues” Avril is experiencing are basically the result of partying too hard, and she’s apparently been spending time in rehab to get her shit together… at least according to Star Magazine.
After dropping out of the public eye for more than two months and refusing to answer to concerned love ones, the startling note had everyone wondering what’s wrong with the singer. “The buzz in her inner circle is that she’s been in rehab for depression and substance abuse issues,” a source close to the singer says. “Avril was an emotional wreck over her marital problems, and she turned to partying to deal with the pain.”
Basically, she’s headed for divorce and between her failed marriage and the fact that her career is pretty much over, she’s losing it bigtime.
And now, it appears that partying away her problems has damaged her health. “Avril feels more alone now than ever and just wants to make it through this,” the source adds. “Everyone hopes that if she is indeed with rehab, it serves her well and she learns better coping mechanisms. She’s got a lot of wonderful people in her life; she just needs to swallow her pride and embrace them.”
Huh. Here’s hoping whatever’s going on gets sorted out soon.
