Avril Lavigne

Singer Avril Lavigne and her rock star husband Deryck Whibley are on the verge of a breakup, according to new tabloid reports. According to the National Enquirer the couple, who wed in 2006, have been troubled since Lavigne started on her world tour earlier this year, often leaving the pair thousands of miles apart. A source tells the magazine Lavigne and Whibley "have been growing apart for months," adding, "Deryck isn't motivated in his own career, so he's been drinking and partying."Rumors of their split were fueled when Whibley was reportedly seen at an event at a Los Angeles nightclub "huddled at a private table" and holding the hand of an unknown woman.
