Avril Lavigne Shows Support To Ex-Hubby Deryck Whibley
The Hello Kitty singer has said she's "proud" of the Sum 41 star following his battle with alcoholism...
Avril Lavigne has taken to Twitter to show her support to ex-hubby Deryck Whibley after the rocker revealed he almost died from the effects of alcoholism.
Earlier this week, the Sum 41 star was snapped looking very frail while out in Los Angeles with his fiancée Jocelyn Aguilar - just days after admitting to fans on his blog that his alcohol addiction landed him in intensive care.
The 34-year old Canadian explained how his liver and kidneys had "collapsed" after years of "hard boozing", confessing his ordeal has left him "scared."
He concluded: "I finally realised I can't drink anymore, If I have one drink the doc's say I will die. I'm not preaching or anything but just always drink responsibly. I didn't, and look where that got me. (I never thought I would ever say that! haha)."
In wake of the revelations, Deryck's ex-wife Avril tweeted: "Spoke to @Sum41 Deryck today. I am so proud of him. He is family to me and always will be. #StayStrongDeryck."

Lavigne - who is now married to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger - divorced Deryck after four years of marriage in 2010.
Despite almost losing his life, Whibley went on to give fans some hope that he'll be back making music again, stating: "I already have a few song ideas for new songs.
"Soon it will be time to start making an album and getting back to touring again."
We wish him a speedy recovery.
