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?
