Avril Lavigne

After hinting at an undisclosed health issue over the weekend, Avril Lavigne has broken her subsequent silence to thank fans for their support.

Avril Lavigne Suffering From Undisclosed Health Issue

Lavigne opened up to a fan who direct-messaged her on Twitter asking why she hadn't been very active on the micro-blogging site. "I'm having health issues. So please keep me in your prayers," Lavigne responded, and a rep confirmed to Billboard that the DM screenshot was authentic.

On Friday (Dec. 12), Lavigne thanked fans -- though she didn't shed any light on just what kind of health issues she's facing.

Most recently, Lavigne released her self-titled fifth album last year.
