Star: Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner are engaged


In case you were worried that Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner might not last after getting tattoos for each other and solidifying their love during drunken nights at Hollywood clubs, you can rest easy. These two crazy kids are reportedly engaged to be married. They’ve been together a whole year and only broke up once, so it’s time:

On Feb. 9, during the duo’s whirlwind trip to Europe, the divorced singer, 26, e-mailed a bandmate a picture of her left hand with what appears to be an engagement ring on it – with the subject line “ha ha.” And insiders tell Star that Brody, 27, did indeed pop the question to his girlfrien of about a year. “Avril has hinted to pals that she thought Brody was planning a big surprise during their trip to France,” says an insider. “It’s just her style to be coy rather than coming out with an announcement right away.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, March 17, 2011]

I’m hoping that this is just some joke e-mail Avril sent and that Star is reading too much into it. I checked both Avril and Brody’s Twitter accounts, and neither of them have tweeted anything about this and they don’t send tweets to each other either as far as I could tell. (I just skimmed it honestly and didn’t go that far back.)

Last summer, we heard that Brody was “begging” Avril to do a reality show with him. He’s sort-of a Kardashian, after all. (His dad is Bruce Jenner.) Maybe they are engaged and soon we’ll be treated to the Avril and Brody show. Spare us, but you know that some TV exec would sign off on that.

Avril and Brody are shown on 2/16/11, 2/13/11 and 12/7/10. You can see her left hand on 2/13 and there’s no engagement ring. Credit:

    Maybe the item Avril can borrow as a bride is some corrective hair color.

  2. brin says:

    Even Ryan Seacrest wouldn’t be dumb enough to sign off on that. They are so meh.

  3. Abby says:

    How is it that her style and music sound are EXACTLY the same as it was when she was 16? In ten years she hasn’t changed at all.

  4. Dixie says:

    Abby I was thinking the exact same thing! I can’t believe she still dresses like that

  5. Quest says:

    Oh Good God…that first pic of Avril holding on to Brody for there life…hilarious.

    How old is she now?

  6. fabgrrl says:

    Wow, he is quite a handsome man.

  7. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Does Hot Topic have a bridal registry?

  8. Praise St. Angie! says:

    yeah, this will last.

    to Abby and Dixie…noticed that, too.

    and it’s probably why she hasn’t been as popular, music-wise, as she was several years ago.

    her fans have grown up, evolved, matured. and she hasn’t. musically or otherwise.

  9. echolocate says:

    I agree about her look. It seems almost impossible that she’s managed to avoid any change to her appearance in all this time. Not to mention, her look was already over by the time she appeared on the scene.

    It’s almost embarrassing. She looks like someone who has no desire to be an adult, ever. He does, too, actually. Their bedroom door probably has a “Keep Out!!!!!!!!!!!!!” sign on it.

    I do get a chuckle imagining her surly teenage presence at the Kardashian Thanksgiving table.

    Based on that first picture, Brody needs to shake off after he uses the urinal.

  10. Dani says:

    @9 – Hilarious! Avril at the Kardashian meal table. Can’t you just see her punk #ss attitude and her wingin some mashed potatoes in Kris’s face the first time Kris ticks her off.

  11. Droll says:

    The first fight with the Kardashians will undoubtedly involve Avril spitting on someone.

  12. Jasmin says:

    I second Abby: How old is she??? Looks a little too old to be doing the koolaid coloured streaks in her hair. I think I was over that when I hit 12.

  13. Bailey says:

    #9- echocolate – you are hilarious, I just spit my green tea all over my screen!

  14. Yael says:

    Ok Avril, the Rainbow Brite locks have to go, you’re starting to look sort of gaga-ish…though you’re far more talented than her, not to mention a universe PRETTIER…start growing kiddo, in 4 years you’ll hit the big 3-0, can’t do that looking like a late 90′s scat…

  15. Leticia says:

    He is handsome, but has he ever had a real job? Has he ever worked a day in his life? How would that feel, to have a self-identity that is merely derivative of step-siblings or Olympic father.

  16. jover says:

    This is the problem with all these tweener pop stars. They are rushed through by the industry to cash in quickly while lacking in real talent, their musical development stagnates, and then they become older more cliched versions of their younger selves while still trying to stay relevant. What knowledgeable twentysomething music fan would go to an Avril Lavigne concert?

  17. Isabel says:

    Good heavens, the neon streaks are still in her hair? How dreadful.

    How much more skulls/leopard print/fingerless glove combinations can this woman spit out? AVRIL – YOU ARE PUSHING 30. And almost on your second marriage. Add those factors together and it’s time to act like a big girl. Or at least look like one.

    Also, I don’t care what kind of Kardashian/famous for nothing trash Brody is…he really is a very pretty man.

  18. mia girl says:

    @pirate cuervo: “Does Hot Topic have a bridal registry?”

    LMAO… That is some funny sh*t.

  19. DetRiotgirl says:

    ITA with everyone commenting on her looks. Plus, have you heard her new song? She also sounds exactly like she did ten years ago. Seriously, it’s like she’s frozen in time.

    Also, did you know she writes awful songs for other people too? This week’s free music video on iTunes is Miranda Cosgrove’s “dancing crazy”. Apparently, Avril wrote that mess with Max Martin. If you listen to the 30 second clip on iTunes, you’ve pretty much heard the whole song. It’s just some awful half rap repeated over and over again for three minutes. So, basically, Avril is making royalties for giving Miranda four lines of talking. Yeah, wow.

  20. Dani says:

    Some funny stuff on here today. Do you suspose that they see themselves the same way the general public views them or do they live in a delusional world? I vote for delusional world because they have bucketfulls of money to blur their reality. And the rich get richer. You can be sure that this marriage will make money for them too.

  21. HRH says:

    “Does Hot Topic have a bridal registry?”


  22. Jackson says:

    She still looks like such a badass…..
    Ahahahaha, I made myself laugh.

  23. Ellie says:

    My sentiments exactly. She needs to grow up. I’ve never liked her stupid teen angst attitude. Her music sounds the same too.

  24. brin says:

    The craziest thing is that she has (or had) a clothing line at Kohl’s…don’t know who would wear it besides her.

  25. Iggles says:

    Ugh. Whoever said they were “meh” had it right. I don’t think Brody has ever held a job and Avril – ugh. Horrible music and messy relationship history. Was she still married to the Sum 41 guys when she hooked up with Brody?

  26. irishserra says:

    Two rich kids with too much time on their hands…

  27. cici says:

    i think brody jenner is so FRACKING hot i can’t even stand it. Gorgeous GORGEOUS man.

  28. JustBored says:

    I loved how after he treated all those girls like crap on The Hills, he is now Avril Lavigne’s bitch. Too funny..

  29. malina says:

    Oh this girl… I don’t even know why I’m so annoyed by her.

    Plus, yeah, she’s still at the stage of 16 yrs old.

  30. KelJo says:

    I have to agree with everyone who commented on the lack of evolution in Avril’s style in both music and dress…jeez Louise, grow up already.

    As for Brody Jenner, I know nothing about him, except that he’s Bruce Jenner’s kid, and was on one of those idiotic reality shows (The Hills?). My only impression of him comes from a picture of him (shirtless) that I saw a couple of years ago, and he has a huge tattoo down his left side of his own name…”Jenner.” Really, dude? How much of a narcisstic ego-maniac do you have to be to get your own name tattooed on you? And it’s not like he’s done anything to earn the Jenner name any respect.

  31. Wendy says:

    To the poster who said Avril is more talented than Gaga, you are totally out of your mind.
    Avril is the worst.

  32. jen says:

    Brody is like totally hardcore.

  33. Mitch says:

    Brody is the kevin federline in the relationship.

  34. Rio says:

    I never got into Avril- although I was her demographic- because I’d been wearing ties with t-shirts throughout HS, loved it, thought it looked awesome, and had to give it up IMMEDIATELY as soon as she came onto the scene.
    Yes, I can hold grudges for the silliest things…

  35. margaritachum says:

    after seeing that style and that hair i only have one question:

    avril, how is it back there in 1990?

  36. aang says:

    where does she get the clothes?
    are 26 year olds even allowed in hot topic?

  37. JJ says:

    Clearly the IQ of 90% of the people who have commented about this article is so low that it makes me lmao.

  38. DetRiotgirl says:

    @JJ I was unaware that any of the people commenting here had been given IQ tests, much less that you were put in charge of evaluating them. I, for one, would like to know which part of the exam you think 90% of us failed. Was there a math test in here somewhere that I missed?

  39. guesty says:

    They are such a random couple.

  40. Jilly Bean says:

    I love how she is the anti-Kardasian…

    and his step dad is David Foster…

  41. ThatBoyLuke says:

    LOL as if Avril would do reality TV, she’s sold like 35m alums and is still goig strong, pluss she would see that as beneath herself.

  42. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    If Avril was the “edgy, punk” chick she pretends to be, she wouldn’t be dating a pretentious, entitled douche from one of the most vapid reality shows of all time. This has to be the most annoying pairing I could possibly come up with.

  43. Str8Shooter says:

    He must really be a famewhore (like his family) to hook up with Advil Lavigne.

    I didn’t know humans could marry skunks!

  44. Kimberly says:

    She’s too old to be dressing like she just got done watching hannah montana or wizards of waverly place . . . she looks like she’s still stuck in 2004. Sad b/c we’re the same age.

  45. jemshoes says:

    She’s cute, but this is no excuse for dressing the way she does – not at her age! :)

  46. TeeTee says:

    Brody is handsome, clean yourself up and RUN away as fast as you can man!!

    what a waste

  47. paisleydog says:

    Avril, Dot called, she wants her gluuuves back!

  48. JenJen says:

    Seriously disappointed in her for this. She will never get another dollar of my money.

    Re: Hot topic comment= spot on!

  49. Zelda says:

    Avril, darling–

    So long as you’re there, could you head down to Winnipeg beach and see if you can find a diamond earring? I lost it last time I was in 2002.
    Thanks Much!


  50. Newbie says:

    “They’ve been together a whole year and only broke up once, so it’s time.”

    Hahahahahaha! OMG!

  51. Shannon says:

    I agree with what everyone else has to say about Avril’s stagnating musical talent. I thought she was awesome for about two minutes when I was 14. Now I’m 22, and I listen to far more mature, meaningful music. I wouldn’t be caught dead listening to Avril Lavigne.

  52. Stephanie says:

    I wonder if this is a preview of what Raccoon McPantsless will look like in 7 years.

  53. Claire says:

    She is horrible – comes across as a spoilt, nasty brat. She never gets good press for her attitude. He looks like a big douchebag. Hopefully they just get ignored

  54. Jenna says:

    this is such a random couple..? isn’t she kind of selling out her hardcore persona to be with someone like him? I hope they break up and he comes running to me………… just sayin.

  55. Jenna says:

    in the top pic she’s dressed like she’s 12 years old and her parents are no longer making her match her clothes…

  56. Francesca says:

    Brody is too handsome for that teenage mess. Please, isnt there a supermodel who can step in and save him?

  57. denise says:

    #9 LMAFAO! I had to go back and look and secondly is it me or is he crosseyed??

  58. Francesca says:

    Well it seems like it might be true!

  59. emma says:

    leave her the hell alone, she can dress and look and sing the way she wants to!
    don’t see why people feel the need to comment on her looks when she’s made it quite clear she will dress how she wants to dress and not how people think she should.
    just because she’s original and not a copy cat of most other people in the industry.

    I personally think she’s really beautiful and since when was it a bad thing to look younger than you actually are? -.-

  60. LuckyLilGem says:

    These days pretty boys want to be with successful women; equal opportunity mating at its best.

  61. Bri says:

    Yeah to whoever said I wonder if they see themselves like the majority of the population does? The answer is definitely no, they haven’t a clue. Just like all the other douche bag celebs. Avril doesn’t know she sold herself out. Good god she dresses like I did when I was 5 years old. She looks like a retard! And Brody Jenner? But I have to admit he is hot!

  62. I love her i think shes amazing and hes the guy from the hills when all the girls always faught over him i love them both im so happy for them. :)

  63. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  64. Funny shit says:

    They are such a random couple.

  67. Robin says:

    @Wendy: Avril has more talent than Gaga, who is one of the worst artists ever.

    Her musical talent has improved over the years. She was always a good singer-songwriter, but she is much better now.
