The Canadian singer’s reps confirmed the news to outlets like Page Six, although it seems like the announcement caught the American rapper by surprise. Representatives of the 35-year-old told the platform, “They were together and engaged as of three days ago when he left for tour so if anything has changed that’s news to him.”
The two were reportedly having issues for the past few months and were “on and off” before Lavigne called off the engagement. While the reason for the split is unclear, sources have told TMZ “there was no cheating on either side.”
“The day we met, I knew you were the one. Together forever til our days are done. I had a dream where I proposed in Paris. I pulled out a ring + asked you to wear it. I was on one knee as I looked in your eyes. You’re too beautiful for my words to describe. I grabbed your hand + took one last breath … I said, ‘Will you marry me?’ + she said, ‘yes.’ I love you, Avril,” Mod Sun wrote on Instagram at the time of the announcement last year.
