In interview with ET Canada, Kroeger commented on the speculation that he and his wife, singer Avril Lavigne, are parting ways.
“You know my dad calls me up and he’s just like, ‘I haven’t slept in two days, what’s going on?’ I’m like, ‘Dad you’re not buying all this crap are you?'” he said. “You know, I get to hear all the rumor mill stuff. So it’s, it’s…I find it very amusing.”
“When you get out of high school, and it’s like ‘Ugh, OK,'” he continued. “All that rumor crap. All that stuff that people say behind each other’s backs is minuscule, pales in comparison to the world of, you know, celebrity or being married to a celebrity. That’s high school multiplied exponentially. It’s ridiculous.”
“Wait, let’s start a new rumor,” he joked. “I’m pregnant.”
Rumors about a possible separation gained more strength in September when Avril celebrated her 30th birthday with friends, without her husband.
Lavigne, 30, and Kroeger, 39, married in July 2013 in a medieval castle near Cannes, France.
