The 39-year-old Nickelback frontman addressed breakup rumors in an interview with ET Canada on Thursday. Us Weekly declared the couple were headed for divorce in September, but Kroeger dismissed the report and said he finds such rumors comical.
"You know, my dad calls me up and he's just like, 'I haven't slept in two days, what's going on?'" he related. "I'm like, 'Dad, you're not buying all this crap, are you?' You know, I get to hear all the rumor mill stuff. I find it very amusing."
"All that stuff that people say behind each other's backs [in high school] is minuscule, pales in comparison to the world of celebrity or being married to a celebrity," he asserted. "It's ridiculous. How many times has Jennifer Aniston been pregnant this year?"
Kroeger and Lavigne have been together since July 2012, and married in July 2013. The frontman gave the 30-year-old singer a 17-carat emerald-cut diamond ring for their one-year wedding anniversary, and said it is normal for either of them to be spotted without their wedding rings.
Kroeger and Nickelback last released Here and Now in 2011, and will debut their eighth studio album, No Fixed Address, on November 17. Lavigne's latest album, Avril Lavigne, was released in November 2013, and includes the singles "Let Me Go" and "Hello Kitty."
