Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner have broken up. According to US Weekly, the singer and reality TV star broke up last week after almost two years together.
A source for the magazine alluded to the couple’s busy schedules as a reason for their split, saying: “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.”
Lavigne, 25, and Jenner, 26, had been one of the more visible couples for the under-30 set in Hollywood: Lavigne got her start as a teenager with punk-rock hits like “Sk8ter Boi” and “My Happy Ending,” while Jenner, step-brother to Kim Kardashian, became a recognizable face on television when he dated Kristin Cavallari on MTV’s “The Hills.” The couple reportedly have each other’s names tattooed onto their bodies.
More recently, in early November, Lavigne and Jenner got into a rowdy Los Angeles fight, from which Brody suffered a cracked head after being assaulted by a bottle.
They were actually a really cute couple, too bad they couldn’t make it work. And how funny is it that Brody’s trying to “get his career back in order”? What career?
