Apparently, Avril Lavigne is in the midst of a crisis involving unknown health issues. The Punk rock diva took to Twitter to apologize for having vanished from the public’s eye. However, without elaborating on what she is ailing from, Lavigne simply asked her followers on social media for prayers and support, according to an ABC News report.
Lavigne shook up the social and musical landscapes over the weekend when she left cryptic tweets on her account. The buzz has been running rampant about her sudden absence from gigs and celebrity appearances at notable events. The 30-year-old “Hello Kitty” star is apparently suffering from an unknown condition or illness, but the extent of her diagnosis remains a mystery.
Avril Lavigne interacted with a super-fan, but it turned out to be a bitter-sweet moment. The good news is that the singer is talking. Supposedly, the fan received a DM from Lavigne about her health issues, and shared the star’s messages on their timeline.
“I feel bad because I haven’t been able to say anything to the fans to let them no why I’ve been absent. I’m torn as I’m quite private….”

A number of unconfirmed rumors have been swirling around about Lavigne’s absence. One involved Avril being pregnant. The other gossip suggested Lavigne and her husband, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, were fighting and experiencing marital stress. Some insiders even said the couple was divorcing.
However, according to Billboard, a rep for Lavigne dismissed news that their client was with child. Moreover, ETCanada caught up with Chad recently and pressed him on split rumors. He found the news about his marriage rather entertaining.
“You know, I get to hear all the rumour mill stuff. I find it very amusing.”
For now, the speculation is still tense about Avril Lavigne’s health, as fans long for her return to the stage and studio. Nonetheless, Lavigne acknowledged there are issues, and the tweet from the Twitter fan appears to be the real deal.
