Scoop: Avril ‘grateful’ for time with Deryck

Did Avril Lavigne split from husband Deryck Whibley over “pal” Brandon Davis? Despite the rumors about the friendship that emerged when the singer announced she was ending her marriage of three years, a source tells People magazine “there is no romance.”

The insider adds that the breakup was “not about Deryck wanting a kid nor is she dating anyone else.” And as for the report that the “Complicated” singer booted the Sum 41 rocker from their Bel Air manse, the source insists that “Deryck has left the house, but “wasn’t kicked out.”

So what did go wrong? “She married too young and she finally realized that,” says the source. “Avril realized she needs her own life and needs to explore things without him.”

For her part, Avril was gracious in announcing the split on her blog, and tacitly acknowledged that the pair was indeed too young to wed.

“Deryck and I have been together for 6½ years,” explained the singer. “We have been friends since I was 17, started dating when I was 19, and married when I was 21. I am grateful for our time together, and I am grateful and blessed for our remaining friendship.”

We still get the sense she’s feeling more positive about it than he is. 

Khloe Engaged

Khloe Kardashian is set to wed her beau after just a month of dating, Us magazine reports. The reality star is reportedly betrothed to L.A. Lakers forward Lamar Odom — and she’s got her heart set on throwing together a ceremony in just two weeks.

“Khloe and Lamar want to get married before Lamar has to go away for training, and the [basketball] season starts up [this fall],” a source explained.

“They are hoping to pull together a wedding within the next two weeks so they can get married and have time for a honeymoon,” added the insider.

“They’re very, very happy,” sister Kim told People of the couple, just a couple of weeks ago.

With Kourtney pregnant and Khloe getting married, it looks like Kim has a lot to, if you’ll pardon the expression, keep up with.
