Avril Lavigne Engaged To Nickelback Frontman Chad Kroeger!

We hear bells ringing! Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger’s relationship has been so quiet that few even knew they were dating. Now, after a six-month courtship, the Canadian rockers are engaged to be married, Lavigne’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne’s upcoming fifth studio album. And along those lines, they fell in love.

“A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together,” a Lavigne pal tells PEOPLE. On Aug. 8, Kroeger popped the question, presenting Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler, which we would really want to see!


“He makes her so happy,” a family source tells PEOPLE. “Both of their families could not be more excited.”

It will be Kroeger’s first trip down the aisle, and the second marriage for Lavigne, who split from Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2009. She had also dated Brody Jenner.

Do you think Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger could be walking down the aisle anytime soon? Could their relationship (and soon-to-be marriage) last, given the short amount of time they’ve been together? Feel free to holler your best wishes and tales of envy to us through the comment box below!

Adele: I’m Pregnant With My First Child!

Adele may have made a name for herself singing songs of heartbreak about ex-boyfriends, but her lovelife now seems to be going swimmingly, and in the future, she’ll probably be crooning lullabies instead. On Friday via her website, the 24-year-old Grammy-winner announced that she and her boyfriend, 36-year-old Drop4Drop charity CEO Simon Konecki, are expecting a baby.

“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” Adele posted. “I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx”


Adele and Simon met and began dating in the summer of 2011, although they did not go public with their relationship until January of this year, when Adele once again made an announcement on her website, to clarify rumors that Simon was still married.

Simon Konecki has a 5-year-old daughter from his previous marriage to fashion stylist Clary Fisher. This will be the first baby for Adele. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Are you happy for Adele and Simon’s first baby together? Do you expect her to sing about babies and families in the near future?

Usher: I’ve Got A Stalker And She Thinks We’re Married!

Usher believes his life is in jeopardy … claiming he’s being stalked by a dangerous delusional woman who is convinced she’s MARRIED to the pop star.

TMZ has learned … Usher has obtained a temporary restraining order against 26-year-old Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw – who’s listed at 5’2″ … and weighs between 140 and 180 lbs. According to court docs, Usher claims Darshelle showed up uninvited to his Georgia home on June 23 with the intention of harassing him and his family. Sources close to Usher say she pounded on his front door and demanded to be let in.


Cops were called to the scene … where they warned Darshelle to stay away from the property … and told her not to come back. We’re told Darshelle left the home … but not for long. Usher says she returned the very next day. Cops were once again called to the scene … and sources tell us Darshelle tried to convince the officers she was Usher’s wife and had simply misplaced her keys. Cops didn’t buy the story … because USHER’S NOT MARRIED … and placed Darshelle under arrest.

Usher is hoping to make that order more permanent during a hearing next month. For Darshelle’s part — she posted a YouTube video Wednesday, claiming Usher has been secretly funneling her cash since last year, promising to make living arrangements for her. She also says he promised to help with her music career.

Do you think that — by some stroke of chance — Usher has some sort of relationship with this woman? Or do you think she’s just another stalker gone cray-cray over celebs? Share your thoughts with us in the comment box below!

Duchess Of Cambridge Goes Camping With School Kids

On Sunday, the Duchess of Cambridge joined inner-city schoolchildren on a camping trip in Kent. The group of 28 eight and nine-year-olds built tents and made campfires on a weekend designed to help develop their confidence and teamwork skills. Kate, 30, (who also spent the day Friday with local children) joined some of the campers under their makeshift shelters and on a ramble through the woods.

And, of course, she answered their questions about life as a princess. “It’s very busy and great fun but I am very well looked after,” Kate told one child.

“She said she got to visit lots of countries but hadn’t seen as many as William,” Tigerlily Smith, 8, told reporters of her conversation with Kate. As for married life, “She said William was very sweet and kind and spoiled her,” Smith revealed.


The students, from ARK’s King Solomon Academy Primary in north Westminster, London, went camping at Widehorizons’ Margaret McMillan House in Wrotham, Kent. The Foundation of Princes William and Harry (of which Kate is now a patron) supports ARK, a U.K. education charity.

The dressed-down duchess (who donned Le Chameau boots and jeans), was a hit with the children, one of whom was eager to show off his manners. ARK spokesperson Lesley Smith said the campers enjoyed themselves tremendously on their trip.

Miley Cyrus Engaged to Liam Hemsworth?

When she stepped out on Saturday night, Miley Cyrus dazzled in a coral silk chiffon Jenny Packham gown and what looked like a very special accessory – the diamond sparkler she had already revealed on Twitter.

“I am sooo obsessed with @jennahipp nail foundations!” Cyrus, 19, wrote Thursday in a posting meant to show off her manicure but sure couldn’t disguise that ring on her left hand. The sizable rock has generated talk that she and Liam Hemsworth are taking their relationship to the next level and getting engaged. But, are they really on the way to a married life?

While reps did not return requests for comment, a source close to the couple says they are not engaged. Still, the ring was very much in evidence Saturday night when Cyrus and her Hunger Games beau, 22, attended Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night XVVIII in Phoenix together.

The two have been dating on and off since they were first spotted kissing in 2009. They also already share a dog. Back in 2009, Cyrus told Seventeen about Hemsworth, whom she first met on set of The Last Song, “I’ve never gotten along with someone so well.”

So, what do you think? Are Miley and Liam engaged for real? If the rumors are true, then we are happy for them!
