If there’s another reason for all you haters our there to grow your loathing for Nickleback’s Chad Kroeger, it’s this: The singer is now engaged to be married to Avril Lavigne. She’s no longer the young punky kid performing pop tunes for tweeners. She’s 27 now and Kroeger is 37, so there’s a bit of an age difference, but they’re both Canadian so that should make up for it, right? Avril was previously married to the front man of Sum 41 but got a divorce back in 2009. Kroeger has never been married. Reports indicate that Kroeger and Lavigne have been secretly dating for the past six months after they collaborated on a tune for a forthcoming Lavigne album. Shall we start taking bets on how long this union will last?
