NICKELBACK's CHAD KROEGER And AVRIL LAVIGNE Rumored To Be Headed For Divorce

According to The Pulse Of Radio, NICKELBACK frontman Chad Kroeger and pop singer Avril Lavigne are reportedly headed for divorce after a year of marriage. Inside sources revealed to Us Weekly, "It's over. He has been going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing." The 39-year-old Kroeger proposed to the 29-year-old Lavigne in August 2012 after dating for just a few months. The couple were married in July 2013 at a ceremony in the South of France.

There has been no public hint of trouble in the marriage, with Lavigne just this past July showing off a 17-carat emerald-cut ring that Kroeger gave her for their first anniversary.

But a source told E! News that the couple is having "a lot of issues," explaining, "When they met, they were in work mode. They were doing a collaboration and that's where the attraction stemmed from. She was in the studio and he was producing her. She was also coming off some bad relationships where she didn't really feel appreciated as an artist. She felt she and Chad connected on that level."

Now that Lavigne's album didn't do as well as hoped, the source continued, "they're finding that they're not seeing eye to eye on a lot of things. There's jealousy on both sides. She flirts, he flirts. She's very insecure to begin with."

The same source told E! that Lavigne "was hoping, after this album, to take time off and start a family."

That could conflict with Kroeger's own career plans. NICKELBACK is set to release its eighth studio album, "No Fixed Address", on November 4, and plans to hit the road in early 2015 for a lengthy world tour in support of the new record.

Lavigne was married once before, to SUM 41 frontman Deryck Whibley. That marriage ended in 2009 after three years.
