She Found Out About The Engagement Online
The woman who dated Kroeger right before Avril Lavigne says they broke up in May. So why is he saying he has been with Avril since February?
Kristen Dewitt told RadarOnline that she and Chad Kroeger had been dating for years, and when they broke up in May it was mutual. But when Lavigne and Kroeger announced their engagement this week, something seemed wrong to Dewitt.
"His engagement to Avril completely caught Kristen off guard, and the timelines don't match up," said RadarOnline. "Chad had to have been seeing Avril behind Kristen's back."
When the couple made the announcement of the engagement this week, Dewitt went to Twitter to share her frustration.
"The moment u find out ur ex of four months engaged the girl he was cheating on you with! #classic," she said.
While Kroeger hasn’t said anything about Dewitt, in April he was on the Dave & Jimmy show on WNCI radio, a Columbus, Ohio, station.
"Yes, I'm dating a girl from Ohio," Kroeger said in that interview. So even if Kroeger and Dewitt weren't public, the rocker did admit to dating someone after he had allegedly gotten together with Lavigne.
Kroeger had dated Marianna Goriuk for years, and when they broke up, he had started dating Dewitt, said RadarOnline.
Kroeger, 37, and Lavigne, 27, met when he signed on to help her write for her new album. He said he just couldn't help having feelings for her, and they said they started dating in February. They did so privately though, and very few people knew of the relationship before they announced their engagement.
On top of this, Lavigne's song Girlfriend from 2007 rings a little too true in this situation.
"Hey, hey, you, you, I don't like your girlfriend / No way, I think you need a new one / I could be your girlfriend / So come over here and tell me what I wanna hear / Better yet, make your girlfriend disappear / I don't wanna hear you say her name ever again," Lavigne sings in the song.
On Thursday, they released their engagement photo, which included a $350,000, 14 carat engagement ring.
Neither Kroeger nor Lavigne has commented on Dewitt's timeline, but they will likely move past it. The couple has not yet announced any wedding plans. But with the whirlwind romance, the wedding could come sooner than later.
