Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley was sent death threats by Avril Lavigne's stalker

Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley was sent death threats by Avril Lavigne's stalker

Remember that completely non-serious crush you used to have on Avril Lavigne? When you were her Sk8er Boi? It wasn't anything serious, was it? Right? Wrong. It turns out that Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley has revealed that one of his ex-wife Avril's stalkers sent him death threats.

Yes, in a new interview with Vice, Whibley revealed the extent of the rather serious targeting he was on the end of. 

"My ex-wife [Lavigne] had a lot of stalkers. And being married to her, they sort of wanted to come after me. There was this one guy from the UK who started sending death threats."

Then one of the letters... Was wiped of fingerprints.

"He was really weird because the stuff he sent had no fingerprints on it and it was at a level that was a little bit more sophisticated. It turned out to be way more serious and he wanted to kill me for some reason. Thankfully the FBI found him over here."

Safe to say, they divorced in 2010. Whibley is now onto better things: being married to Ariana Cooper and releasing a new Sum 41 album, '13 Voices'. Lavigne, however, married Chad Kroeger in 2013...

And then divorced him two years later. So, however she's doing right now, it's better than she would have been in any given point between 2013-15.
