True love is a false promise, filled with lies, illusion, and deceit, and here’s the proof: After two years of marriage, Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger are separating. Lavigne announced the separation via Instagram today, signaling the end of an era, and the demise of Canada’s biggest musical power couple since Raine Maida & Chantal Kreviazuk.

Here’s Avril Lavigne’s full statement on the separation:

“It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today. Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments. 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.”

Light a candle, and listen to this until the pain subsides. Goodbye, Chavril.
