According to an exchange of messages between Avril and a fan, the 30-year-od singer is suffering from a mysterious illness.
When a fan account sent a DM to her asking if she has plans to release a new album soon, the answer wasn’t very reassuring.
“I feel bad because I haven’t been able to say anything to the fans to let them no why I’ve been absent,” the popstress wrote.
“I’m torn as I’m quite private….I’m not feeling well. I’m having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers.”
After receiving the message from his idol, the fan wished her a speedy recovery in a tweet that reads “#GetWellSoonAvril #PrayForAvril.” Lavigne replied with a simple “Thank you”.
Her rep has confirmed to Billboard that this exchange of messages was authentic and added that the singer was not pregnant.
After rumors that her marriage to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger had gone bad, the Canadian singer has somewhat disappeared from the public eye.
