Avril and Chad to tie the knot

NOT THAT COMPLICATED: In an alliance of Canadian rock royalty, Avril Lavigne is getting hitched to Chad Kroeger. The 27-year-old pop/punk princess and the 37-year-old Nickelback frontman had been quietly dating for six months before Kroeger popped the question on Aug. 8, her rep told People yesterday. Kroeger proposed on Aug. 8 with a 14-carat diamond ring. The two artists began collaborating in February on material for the follow-up to Lavigne’s 2011 album Goodbye Lullaby, and one thing led to another. “A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together,” a Lavigne source told People. Lavigne and Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley divorced in 2009. L.A. Reid will perform the ceremony. (8/22a)
