Avril Lavigne Covers Nylon, Says She Met Chad Kroeger When She Was 17

Avril Lavigne covers the July 2013 issue of Nylon magazine and talks about when she first saw her now husband Chad Kroeger of Nickelback (via Us). It was when she was with Deryck Whibley when she was 17 back when Complicated had just come out. That night Avril was out celebrating with Jaeger bombs and Whibley ended up carrying her out of the venue over his shoulder. That’s when she saw Kroeger partying nearby.

“He didn’t even know who I was at that point!” the singer says of Kroeger, 38. “I had just gotten on the radio.”

Lavigne and Whibley divorced in 2010 and she started seeing Nickelback front man Chad Kroeger just recently. Now she’s happy… with Nickelback.

These days, its Kroeger who makes Lavigne most happy. “He’s nice, and real, and kind,” the 28-year-old Napanee, Ont., native gushes. “For me, it’s about having a connection on a deeper level.”

Yea, but Nickelback.

The musicians began collaborating on Lavigne’s album in early 2012. “He does what I do — he’s a rocker, he plays guitar, he’s onstage every night and he writes songs,” Lavigne says.

Yea, but Nickelback?

Lavigne’s favorite track off her forthcoming fifth album is called “Let Me Go,” a romantic ballad she co-wrote with Kroeger. “Lyrically, I pushed myself to talk about different subjects I haven’t talked about before,” the singer tells Nylon. “I didn’t want to be so simple. I tried to really express myself and go deeper.”

Yea… but Nickelback?!
