Avril Lavigne Perfectly Dismisses Rehab Rumors

Avril Lavigne

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:

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.

For our part, we'd like to wish Avril a Bing Crosby-filled Christmas and a speedy recovery.
