As the story goes, Vandella then went to record "Under My Skin" as Lavigne ("From here it was no longer the real Avril," the blog post reads, “but ‘Avril Lavigne’ under the skin of the other singer") and left subtle hints along the way about what had really happened.
That, along with pictures of how Lavigne’s face and handwriting had changed, was all the proof they needed. As Buzzfeed explained in an article titled "Here's How I Accidentally Made An Old Avril Lavigne Death Hoax Go Viral," that Brazilian post made it clear at the beginning that it was created to show "how conspiracy theories can look true." And yet, despite that disclaimer, the theory quickly spread like wildfire thanks to the Buzzfeed writer sharing the conspiracy theory as a joke with his fellow Americans following a visit to Buzzfeed Brazil. Late last week, Twitter used @givenchyass brought the conspiracy theory back to life with a long thread explaining it all.
When they announced their separation a couple of years ago, Avril said via Instagram, “We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other.” Unlike other exes, you can tell these two actually mean it. Avril joined Chad on stage recently, to rock out together at a Nickelback show. She shared this video: Impromptu performance of "Rockstar" with @nickelback last night in Los Angeles. He posted the following photo, and said, “When we say ‘you never know who will join us for ‘Rockstar’ karaoke’… Thank you @avrillavigne and Los Angeles for an amazing night!

The two have been spotted out together a few times this fall, most recently over the weekend in Los Angeles.
Here they are back in October, picking pumpkins like any ‘ol normal couple.
