Burn! Deryck Whibley Dresses Up as Ex-Wife Avril Lavigne for Halloween
It’s the most ridiculed union of the year, so it’s no surprise that Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne — who announced their engagement in May — have been a popular Halloween costume this week. Heck, even Avril’s ex-husband, Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley, is getting in on the fun.
Teaming up with his girlfriend Ari Cooper, Deryck sported a blonde multi-hued wig, white hoodie and heavy eyeliner to be a deadringer for the “Sk8er Boi” singer.
Nickelback frontman Chad got in on the joke, tweeting this back-handed compliment:
“Hey Deryck loved the costumes! We were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha!”
He later sent another tweet to Deryck, confirming he was only joking, writing:
“You owe us a couples bowling grudge match see you when I get back from Russia!”
Deryck and Avril divorced in 2010, but they’ve remained friends and musical collaborators. The exes worked together on her 2011 album, Goodbye Lullaby.
