Away from the fire! Before their breakup made headlines, Avril Lavigne and Mod Sun secretly called it quits, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.
The two were apart for months before the Us confirmed their breakup in February. “They got to know each other on a deeper level and realized it didn’t work out, and they quietly parted things,” the insider said.
After the singer of the song “Complicated,” 38, was spotted out to dinner with Ty in Los Angeles last month, rumors that the twosome had called it quits on their relationship began to circulate. There was no third party involved in the I’m With You singer’s breakup from the 33-year-old 1970s musician, a source informed Us at the time, and the two are merely friends and nothing more.
While the insider said that Lavigne and the My Hippy singer broke up for real after months of dating back and forth, Mod Sun‘s representative told Us that the pair were engaged three days ago, when Mod went on tour, and that if anything has changed since then, it’s news to him.
The native of Minnesota who had proposed to Lavigne in March 2022 subsequently appeared to address the breakup on social media. He wrote in the caption of an Instagram image on February 28 that “in 1 week my entire life completely changed. I simply know that everything has a purpose. Even when it feels broken, I’ll keep my head high and pay attention to my heart.
Being surrounded by love every night while on tour, he continued, has been a true blessing. Thanks to them for always having my back, I have the best friends in the entire world. I’ll see you there.
After their musical connection, Us revealed in December 2020 that Lavigne and the Karma artist were dating. Afterward, Mod Sun admitted that he met the Canadian through Machine Gun Kelly, a mutual buddy.
The drummer told Metro in February 2021 that they first connected via a simple discussion of music, adding that he was awestruck when Lavigne expressed interest in his work. She said, “I really like your song, I really like your music,” and “Give me some other material that you’re working on,” which is difficult to even say since it’s Avril Lavigne.

The Sk8ter Boi singer contributed her vocals to Lavigne’s song Flames on his Internet Killed the Rockstar album in January 2021, despite the Bones crooner admitting he was first apprehensive to collaborate with her.
Mod Sun inked the Grammy nominee’s name on his neck after their time in the studio together. They were frequently seen dating in pairs, including Kelly, 32, and her fiancee Megan Fox, who proposed in January 2022.
Lavigne, on the other hand, was apprehensive to commit to Mod Sun because of her troubled relationship past. Her last marriage lasted from 2006 to 2010 to the frontman for Sum 41, Deryk Whibley. She married Chad Kroeger in 2013, however, the couple eventually divorced. (Mod Sun dated Bella Thorne from 2017 to 2019; he was Mod Sun‘s partner.)

I feel as though I’ve repeatedly had the wind knocked out of me. I’m so tired of it. Right now, I have to care for myself. So instead of waiting for a man to start a future with, I bought a house. I was like, I m doing this for me now. She admitted to Nylon in December 2021 that she was the only person and the only person she could rely on, despite her best efforts to suppress her love for the Stay Away rocker at first.
After parting ways with the Happy as F K singer, Lavigne might be scared to date again, but she seems to be embracing her newfound independence with Tyga. According to images obtained by TMZ on March 1, the couple was seen together once more when they arrived at a party hosted by Leonardo DiCaprio in Paris.
