Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger

Avril Lavigne has announced that she's separating from Chad Kroeger after two years of marriage.

The singer posted a statement on her Instagram account alongside a happy photo of the couple on their wedding day.

"It is with a heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today," she wrote.

"Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments."

She added: "We are still and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other.

"To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support."

The 30-year-old married the Nickelback frontman in July 2013.

It was Avril's second marriage, having split up with Sum 41 guitarist and lead singer Deryck Whibley in 2010 after four years of marriage.

The announcement comes just a couple of months after she opened up about her recent battle with Lyme disease.

The singer, who believes she contracted the disease after being bitten by a tick in 2014, was left confined to bed for five months at her home in Ontario, Canada.
