Well, it's official! Love is dead.

We only just barely made it through as a society during this unofficial Summer Of Uncoupling: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck? Please don't. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale? STAHP.

And now, we've been dealt yet another conscious celebrity uncoupling: Avril Lavigne and the person responsible for unleashing Nickelback on an unsuspecting world, Chad Kroeger.


"It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today. Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support," Avril wrote on her Instagram, complete with a vaguely pink-and-black-tinted photograph of the two in happier times.

Thankfully, I have full faith that Avril will spread her wings and...fly, and he'll be fine looking at that photograph.
