“It was mutual, but Brody really broke up with her,” an insider told reporters. “He told her he was tired of always being her plus-one, and always going on tour with her.”
“They decided to end their relationship,” a source said. “It wasn’t working out, and they wanted to go their separate ways.”
The source suggested that the couple’s busy schedules were 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.”
He kept on explaining: “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.”
By the way, Lavigne has been married before, to Sum 41 leader Deryck Whibley, with whom she divorced in July 2009. Soon after that the celebrity started dating Brody, says the Daily Mail.
Initially the two were spending all their time together, they even got matching tattoos of each other’s names.
Lavigne was reported having alleged that she wants to go down the aisle again but Broody didn’t share her opinions: “They had been having problems starting in the summer with her tour because she was on the road all the time. It put a strain on their relationship.”
“It put a strain on their relationship,” the source added, Life & Style reports. Only a few days ago the two were reported to be engaged.
She Knows reported: “The 27-year-old songstress is ready to walk down the aisle for a second time after accepting a Christmas proposal from the ex-star of MTV’s The Hills and Bromance.”
“Everyone is so excited,” an insider revealed. “Brody’s mom, Linda Thompson, is thrilled that her Casanova son is settling down. She loves Avril and thinks she’s good for Brody.”
He added, “It’s a case of opposites attracting. He’s a cool Malibu surfer type, she’s a pale rocker from Canada. But they work well for each other.”
Unfortunately, it was not true to life.
However, the friend of the couple mentioned that the break up may not be permanently the final point. “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.”
“You never know what will happen, but they are well suited for each other. She’s such a lovely person and surprisingly, she’s a real home body. She loves to cook and she’s really grounded and very familial. She’s into close-knit family time. I really respect her,” said the insider.
“They have the same sense of humor. They both love to laugh and have fun. They both have a little streak of irreverence which is pretty delightful and a lot of fun to be with.”
One more insider agreed: “They still love each other and could get back together, but for now, he needed a break.”
