The ‘Complicated’ hitmaker has revealed she has found love following her divorce from Chad Kroeger in 2015 and she recently celebrated her one year anniversary with her beau.
She said: “I’ve dated a couple people over the last few years, but obviously I don’t really wanna talk about it. Actually, it was our one year anniversary on Valentine’s Day.”
Avril has maintained a good friendship with her exes, especially Chad, who she worked on on her new album, ‘Head Above Water’.
She added: “They’re just good people. We had marriages, we lived together, I knew their families, they knew mine, we just stayed close and there’s a mutual respect … Chad, in particular, we’re actually really close, because that was a more recent relationship. He was with me through a lot and is a really protective person in my life. He’s still like family. I didn’t know that it would be that way, and I’m really glad it is because we were friends and we made music together. We’ve just kept the friendship and continued having a working relationship, as well.”
The 34-year-old singer was grateful to have Chad’s support through the album process.
She told USA Today: “He was a really great soundboard. I would call him and send him songs to get his opinion, and if I was ever stuck on something, he’d help me out, which is super cool …
I’d play him songs on FaceTime and he’d be like, ‘I’m so proud of you, you did such a good job’. So he just cares about me and wants to see me do well, which is really nice.”
