Justin Bieber has been in the news a lot lately — possibly playing beer pong, some swatting prank and a stolen computer. But now he's making headlines for a much more fun reason — his famous relatives have been revealed!
Wow! Who knew Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman, Chad Kroeger, were even dating, let alone engaged?
So much for their happy ending. Avril Lavigne and boyfriend of two years, Brody Jenner, have reportedly split — this according to Us Weekly and Life & Style.
What seems like a well-intentioned effort to break up a fight between his girlfriend and another girl resulted in Brody Jenner taking a bottle to the head.
According to their birth date analysis, Brody (born on August 21, 1983) and Avril (born on September 27, 1984) have something pretty intense going on. In their case, "it's just like Jerry Maguire–and every other guy trying to get out of the dog house–once said: you complete me." The nice thing is that, in their case, it's "actually true." (And downright cheesy. But still true.) They're "totally synced up on physical, emotional and social levels and, to sweeten the pot, their couple-ness actually attracts good fortune and big paydays."
No matter how many times we've heard that opposites attract, we're still slightly confused when a pair of stars from seemingly opposite ends of the celebrity universe combine. Here are six eamples of couples that we never would have pictured together.
Life in the celebrity romance lane certainly has been a bit bumpy as of late. What, with all the restraining orders, sex rehab and feminine hygiene products out there — yikes! So today, let us pretend that Peaches Geldof has not sunk her heroin-stained mitts into Eli Roth. That Victoria Hopper did not try to kill the already mostly-dead Dennis Hopper. That Michelle "Bombshell McGee" never existed. And that Courtney Love did indeed just make up her relationship with hotelier Andre Balazs. Happy April Fool's Day!
So much for their happy ending: Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley are over. Avril filed the divorce papers on October 9, less than a month after she posted a message on her website announcing the couple's separation. The reason cited for dissolving the marriage was—what else—that old standby, "irreconcilable differences."
Correct us if we're wrong, but didn't Avril Lavigne build her pop-punk empire upon the stones of anti-preppy angst? So what is this we hear about her recent hook ups with sleazy oil heir Brandon Davis and heir to Dole Food Company, Justin Murdock—both most assuredly the epitome of prepster privilege and arrogance?
In the four days since Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley's impending divorce was announced, speculations have flown about how things ended and why. Us Weekly blamed it all on Avril, saying that she: "forced him out of their $9.5 million, 12,000-square-foot estate in LA's Bel Air" and that Deryck "is crushed." Deryck, on the MySpace page for his band, Sum 41, however, said: "Our decision to part ways is amicable and she holds a special place in my heart and forever will be a great and amazing friend." Meanwhile, Avril, on her own website, said: "I admire Deryck and have a great amount of respect for him. He is the most amazing person I know and I love him with all my heart. Deryck and I are separating and moving forward on a positive note." Hmmm...who are we supposed to believe? Us Weekly, who was first to break the story, or the divorcing couple themselves, who sound sort of like they're still in love?
