Lavigne, 27, known for her music career and fashion line, recently responded to a Tweet by "Hils" star Brody Jenner...with love. The pair dated for almost two years, sometime early 2010 to current, though there are reports the pair have separated.
According to People magazine, a source confirmed that the couple have indeed split. The source also says that the lovebirds, who were inseparable for much of their romance, could very well get back together.
The night that the news broke about the alleged split, Jenner Tweeted a cryptic Tweet that read, "Everybody... RELAX!!!" on January 16.
"It really upsets me to read all the FALSE!! Stories," Jenner Tweeted on January 18. "Avril has always been there for me and is the closest person to my heart. I love her." Lavigne re-Tweeted the message to her followers.
Lavigne also responded to Jenner's message, "luv u 2!!! @BrodyJenner," the same night.
A source also confirmed to E! News that the pair is no longer an item, and that the breakup was a "mutual decision."
According to E! Online, a source close to the singer confirmed that she recently sold her Bel Air mansion, and will embark on an overseas tour as a "distraction" from the breakup.
Jenner, 28, is best known for his appearances on "The Hills," as well as his string of romances with co-stars Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari. Jenner was also linked to Nicole Richie in August 2006.
Lavigne was previously involved with Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley. The pair married in July 2006 in California, and have no children together. Lavigne filed for divorce in October 2009, citing irreconcilable differences.
Lavigne is best known for hits such as "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi," but more recently debuted her fashion line, Abbey Dawn. She had a New York Week Fashion Week event in September 2011 where she debuted her Spring/Summer 2012 collection, and featured Kylie Jenner, Brody's half-sister, as a model.
