Apparently Canadian singer and former Nickelback fan Avril Lavigne's current mysterious health issues are so serious that she's letting the hashtag #PrayForAvril be a thing — and even tweeting it herself. In a Twitter direct message exchange with a fan account, Lavigne revealed, "I feel bad because I haven't been able to say anything to the fans to let them [know] why I've been absent" and, "I'm not feeling well. I'm having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers." Following the release of the exchange, a rep for Lavigne confirmed the health issues to Billboard while clarifying that the singer is definitely not pregnant, despite speculation.
