Los Angeles: Musician Chad Kroeger has laughed off rumours of him splitting from Avril Lavigne after one year of marriage.
The Nickelback member said that he found the break-up story 'amusing', reported Ace Showbiz.
"You know my dad calls me up and he's just like, 'I haven't slept in 2 days, what's going on?' I'm like, 'Dad you're not buying all this crap are you?' You know, I get to hear all the rumour mill stuff. I find it very amusing," he said.
"When you get out of high school, and it's like, 'Ugh, okay.' All that rumour crap. All that stuff that people say behind each other's backs is minuscule, pales in comparison to the world of celebrity or being married to a celebrity. That's high school multiplied exponentially," he said.
Kroeger, 39, gave the 'When You're Gone' hitmaker a 17-carat diamond ring to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in July.
