Avril Lavigne Perfectly Dismisses Rehab Rumors
It takes a special talent to simultaneously deny rehab rumors and wish the world a Merry Christmas. Well, it turns out Avril Lavigne has that unique gift. With Christmas just a day away and persistent rumors flitting around Twitter, Lavigne tweeted this gem:
The rehab RUMORS are hilarious! The only thing I'm addicted to right now is Bing Crosby. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! and to all a goodnight!— Avril Lavigne (@AvrilLavigne) December 24, 2014
Speculation stems from the undisclosed health problem Lavigne hinted at earlier this month. Lavigne sent a fan a DM on Twitter telling them, "I'm not feeling well. I’m having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers."
A rep for Lavigne would not disclose the issue to Billboard, but they confirmed she was not pregnant.
A few days later she thanked fans for their support, once again without revealing the problem.
Thank you to all the fans for the sweet get well messages and all the tweets. I appreciate the lovely notes and well wishes from everyone.— Avril Lavigne (@AvrilLavigne) December 12, 2014
For our part, we'd like to wish Avril a Bing Crosby-filled Christmas and a speedy recovery.
