The Word: Avril Lavigne not such a Nickelback fan after all

2013 MuchMusic Video Awards - Arrivals

 

Say it ain't so! After recently celebrating a year of wedded bliss — and showing off a gaudy 17-carat diamond ring to mark the occasion, Avril Lavigne and Nickelback front-man Chad Kroeger are reportedly packing it in, according to Us Weekly. "It's over. He has been going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing," a source says. I'm not really one to judge, but I can't believe it took her this long to realize he was in Nickelback. I guess sparkly diamonds can only distract a person from the awful truth for so long.

 

So, for those playing along at home, Lavigne has married the singer from Canadian bands Sum 41 and Nickelback. Is her dating service MuchMusic? Should any of the Barenaked Ladies be worried?

 


 

Kendall Jenner vs. the Mean Girls


Apparently there's even hazing in the fashion world, as Kendall Jenner reportedly learned during her New York Fashion Week debut earlier this month. "The other models worked so hard to get a spot on the runway and didn't think it was fair that she was there. They thought she was getting special treatment and just weren't OK with it," a source tells In Touch, adding that some of the other models "even put out their cigarettes in Kendall's drink. Models can be cruel, especially with someone new and entitled."


Gathering the details on Clooney's upcoming wedding


As George Clooney's upcoming Venice wedding to Amal Alamuddin approaches, new details about the big day are leaking out. Italian outlet Il Gazzettino reports that the nuptials will take place on Sept. 27, and Clooney's favorite newspaper of all time, the Daily Mail, reports that the couple will host an intimate rehearsal dinner the night before at the Hotel Cipriani. Us Weekly, for its part, claims that Alamuddin's family will actually be footing the bill. "Crazy enough," a source says, "her family is paying for most of it."


Connor Cruise on spiritual walkabout


The Church of Scientology might be down another high-profile member, as Connor Cruise — the 19-year-old aspiring DJ and son of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman — is reportedly distancing himself from the controversial organization and has embarked on something of a spiritual quest. "Connor is no longer as interested in being a member of Scientology," a source tells Radar Online. "Connor is in Morocco right now doing some soul-searching. He is on a spiritual journey."


Aubrey Plaza IS Grumpy Cat


Grumpy Cat apparently has a voice, and that voice is … Aubrey Plaza. The laconic "Parks and Recreation" star has signed on to give voice to the fuzzy Internet superstar for an upcoming Lifetime TV movie, "Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever," according to the the Hollywood Reporter. Plaza confirmed the casting news in true Grumpy Cat fashion: by tweeting one of the feline's popular memes.
