Avril Lavigne‘s ex, Deryck Whibley, had to be hospitalized for drinking. He posted about it on his website and included photos, and titled the post “rock bottom.” The good news is, he sees it as a wake-up call. Here’s some of what he posted on his site, DeryckWhibley.Net:
hey everyone, it’s deryck here. sorry i’ve been so m.i.a. lately, but i’ve been very sick in the hospital for a month and was pretty sick for a few weeks leading up to my trip to the hospital. the reason i got so sick is from all the hard boozing i’ve been doing over the years. it finally caught up to me. i was drinking hard every day. until one night. i was sitting at home, poured myself another drink around mid night and was about to watch a movie when all of a sudden i didn’t feel so good. i then collapsed to the ground unconscious.
He describes what happened next:
my fiancé got me rushed to the hospital where they put me into the intensive care unit. i was stuck with needles and i.v.’s all over. i was completely sedated the FIRST WEEK. when i finally woke up the next day i had no idea where i was. my mum and step dad were standing over me. i was so freaked out. my liver and kidney’s collapsed on me.
needless to say it scared me straight. i finally realized i can’t drink anymore. if i have one drink the doc’s say i will die. i’m not preaching or anything but just always drink responsibly. i didn’t, and look where that got me. (i never thought i would ever say that! haha)
And here are some photos:
Yikes. I gotta say, good for him. Sadly, a lot of people don’t realize this until it’s too late (RIP Amy Winehouse). I hope he really does stay away from booze and finds a better path for his life to take. And I appreciate him being so candid. What’s interesting to me, though, is that nowhere in his post does he use the word “alcoholic.” I hope he truly does realize that he is one and does indeed have a serious problem. Before anyone can move forward, they gotta admit it. It sounds like he’s almost there.

Do you see that hilarity going on up there? That’s Deryck Whibley, lead singer of Sum 41 and Avril Lavigne‘s ex-husband, and his girlfriend, all dressed up for Halloween. They’re dressed as Avril and Avril’s soon-to-be husband, Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. And that’s wonderful.
Really, it’s maybe a little catty and weird for them to do this. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love it, and it’s definitely my favorite celebrity Halloween costume thus far, but for Avril, it’s got to be a little awkward. And for Avril’s man, it’s just simply uncool.
Here’s what Chad tweeted in retaliation:
Total burn! Except not really, because the guy from Nickelback just called the guy from Sum 41 irrelevant. I think that’s going to open up a whole can of worms that Chad wasn’t expecting, because instead of thinking he is funny and chivalrous, I’m just laughing about how silly and lame Nickelback is.
We can talk about how much these costumes rock in the comments, but for now, I have a very serious question:
Who's the bigger douchebag?
You know, for a second I thought that Deryck had some kind of Benjamin Button-like disease and these photos were actually taken awhile back with his Mummy, but then I realized that they couldn’t be all that old, considering Whibley still looks like a weird, shrunken little old man in a kid’s body. Guess this fine lady would be his new woman and not the lady that gave him life!
And isn’t she pretty, folks? Girlfriend’s name is Ari Cooper, and if you’re unfamiliar with her, you’re not alone. She’s a model out of LA, and that’s about all I know about her. But she’s not Avril Lavigne, and isn’t that a big step up! Yeah, they’ve allegedly been dating for awhile, but I came across these photos just today and knew that I had to run them as soon as I possibly could.
Want to look at another? OK!
Aren’t these two just darling? I wonder if my husband and I look as funny as these two do. We’re about the same height as Deryck and his girl, but the only difference is that I’m probably Deryck’s height and my husband is more like Ari’s height. You know. Not that it means anything or anything.
