(Newser) – Avril Lavigne and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger will no longer be making sub-par music together. They're separating after two years of marriage, Lavigne announced in a statement on Instagram today, per the Los Angeles Times. "Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments," she wrote. "We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other."

Lavigne, who was previously married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley for three years, met Kroeger when he contributed to one of her albums; they were together just one month before getting engaged in August 2012, and married less than a year later. But they've long been plagued by rumors of trouble in paradise, People reports. It's not been a great year for them: Lavigne, 30, revealed in April that she has Lyme disease, and Kroeger, 40, recently had a vocal chord cyst removed, forcing Nickelback to cancel the rest of this year's tour.
