Well, it's official! Love is dead.

We only just barely made it through as a society during this unofficial Summer Of Uncoupling: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck? Please don't. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale? STAHP. Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards? I SAID I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT. Ugh.

And now, we've been dealt yet another conscious celebrity uncoupling: Avril Lavigne and the person responsible for unleashing Nickelback on an unsuspecting world, Chad Kroeger.


"It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today. Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support," Avril wrote on her Instagram moments ago, complete with a vaguely pink-and-black-tinted (very #onbrand) photograph of the two in happier times.

Their 2013 collaboration "Let Me Go" was taken very literally, it seems. But then, that was also like the worst song off of Avril Lavigne, so actually good riddance.

But, no! Still devastating news. Thankfully, I have full faith that Avril will spread her wings and...fly, and he'll be fine looking at that photograph.

Considering the fact that they're totally BFFs now, perhaps Taylor Swift has a single suitor in her coven who might be a good match for Av. Tay?

The words "Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?" have never cut so deep. :(
