Canadian pop music's royal couple may soon be no more: Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger are reportedly on the verge of divorce.

According to Us Weekly, Lavigne, 29, and Kroeger, 39, are allegedly heading for a breakup after slightly more than one year of marriage.

An unnamed source told Us: "It's over. He has been going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing."

Best known as the frontman of the Canadian power-rock group Nickelback, Kroeger asked Lavigne to marry him in August, 2012, after they dated for one month. The couple married in a lavish ceremony in the south of France in July, 2013.

And by all appearances, it has been a blissful union so far. In July, Lavigne went on Twitter to rave about the 17-carat ring Kroeger gave her for their first wedding anniversary.

But hold the phone: According to a new report in Hollywood Life, Lavigne wasn't wearing the rock when she was spotted at the Chateau Marmont a few weeks ago.

"Avril was partying with a bunch of her girlfriends," said the Hollywood Life source. "She wasn't wearing the huge diamond rock her husband Chad gave her as a gift on their first wedding anniversary."
