Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner Split

Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner have called it off, according to sources close to Us Weekly.

The couple, who have been dating since spring 2010, have reportedly split due to conflict over their careers – or specificially, Jenner’s lack of one. According to Us Weekly‘s source, former Hills star Jenner wanted to work more, but his pop star girlfriend preferred to take him around the world with her as she toured. The shadowy insider told Us:

“Every time he wanted to come back and take meetings to get his career back in order, she would make him go to Asia and Europe. He hasn’t worked and he wants to. They were both unhappy because he wants to have his career, she wants him to stay with her.”

The mole even says the 25-year-old pop singer vetoed “multiple” TV offers that were made to Jenner, as she preferred to have him by his side. There may well be another side to this story, but a rep for Lavigne gave a “no comment” when approached about the split.

In the past, the couple have looked a fairly solid pair. Jenner, in particular, has shown an affection for Lavigne that led to him getting a tattoo of her name on his forearm, and an ‘A’ shaved into his hair. Hell, they even fought in bars together.

Alas, the evenings of Jenner watching Avril from the side of a stage and throwing punches in clubs together seem to be over. But there is a chink of hope, apparently. The source adds:

“There is always a chance they will get back together. Brody is trying to set the ground rules and wants to be able to work. They have to find a balance.”

Do you see this relationship getting back on the rails?
