Back in 2001, Avril Lavigne
was the hottest thing in music, and since then has maintained her rock grrrl sound, sometimes off-putting DGAF attitude, and legions of fans around the world, so something wasn't right when she suddenly became a recluse with little to no explanation.
While rumors have swirled that her and husband, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, were headed for divorce, in a recent direct message exchange with Twitter fan, @AvrilMusicChart, Lavigne revealed in so many words that she is dealing with health issues and isn't up for making the specifics public.
"I feel bad, because I havent been able to say anything to the fans to let them know why Ive been absent. Im torn, as Im quite private, Avril said in the DM. "I'm not feeling well. I'm having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers."
Aside from Lavigne's camp ruling out pregnancy, there no one is divulging any further details on her condition.
Let's hope she gets back on her feet soon.
