Summer may be coming to an end, but the season of celebrity divorces is still in full swing as Canadian stars Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne have confirmed they are divorcing after two years of marriage. Thirty-year-old Lavigne and Kroeger, 39, were married in July 2013, only one year after the two began dating while working together on Lavigne’s fifth album.

Lavigne made the announcement on her Instagram page, posting a picture of herself and Kroeger on their wedding day along with a statement, reading, “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.”

The two, like many other celebrity couples, had constantly deflected divorce rumors with Kroeger talking and joking about it in a interview back in November. “Sometimes it’s funny. When you’re standing in the checkout line at a grocery store and you look over and it’s your face on there. Not the…Kardashians…and Brangelinas…it’s ‘Chavril.’ You’re like, ‘Can I buy all these? So that no one can see?’ […]You know my dad calls me up and he’s just like, ‘I haven’t slept in 2 days, what’s going on?’ I’m like, ‘Dad you’re not buying all this crap are you?’ You know, I get to hear all the rumor mill stuff. I find it very amusing.”
