Last week, the world learned that Avril Lavigne is suffering from Lyme disease.
The 30-year-old singer opened up about her ailment in a candid People magazine interview in which she praised her "amazing" family for helping her to cope.
When asked about her husband, Chad Kroeger, Lavigne simply stated that he's been "supportive."
Lavigne-Kroeger divorce rumors have been circulating for the past year, and with good reason: It's been almost a year since the couple has been seen together.
And this isn't just a case of the two of them successfully dodging the paparazzi.
Avril tweets just about every day, but she hasn't mentioned Kroeger on social media in 12 months.
Now, insiders are claiming that after a year of "living separate lives" Lavigne and Kroeger are ready to proceed with a divorce.
It turns out, Lavigne wants children and Kroeger does not. It's an issue that they've reportedly been arguing over for a year, and Avril has apparently reached her breaking point.
"She wants a baby and he does not right now," a source tells Radar Online. "The fighting is not something they can hide anymore."
Witnesses say Lavigne has not been wearing her wedding band or engagement ring during recent public appearances, but has replaced the rings with a pearl band, in order to not draw attention.
