Avril Lavigne and Mod Sun have called it quits less than a year after getting engaged. The pop-punk musicians have ended their rocky, whirlwind relationship.

The two were last seen together at a pre-Grammy event but earlier this week a tabloid published photos of the “Complicated” singer hugging rapper Tyga, Kylie Jenner’s ex-boyfriend. The photos sparked dating rumors but the two are reportedly just friends.

Mod Sun was reportedly blindsided by the split.


The couple met in January 2021 and released a song together titled “Flames” the same month. Reports of the two being romantically linked were released the following month and the two got engaged in April 2022. 

Mod Sun released his latest album God Save the Teen earlier this month which featured a track titled “Avril’s Song” and a collaboration with Lavigne titled “Shelter”.

Mod Sun described “Avril’s Song” as “dark and sweet at the same time,” noting that its lyrics are “a total metaphor” for how he’s been affected by the relationship.

“I have found such a partner in this world to go through the chaos that life gives you,” he told E! News. “I have found that person. I’m with a real grown woman who has gone through it all 10 times over and she makes me a better person.”
