Avril Lavigne's Ex

Taking HER Last Name

Was a Huge Mistake

EXCLUSIVE

1107-avril-lavigne-deryck-whibley-getty
Here's something you didn't know about Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley -- he took Avril Lavigne's last name when he married her, and now ... 3 years after divorcing her he's finally sick of it ... because he's filed legal docs to drop it.

Deryck Jason Lavigne Whibley just filed in L.A. County Court to go back to his birth name ... sans Lavigne.

It's pretty crazy -- A) because he took her last name in the first place and NO ONE KNEW, and B) because it took him so long (FOUR YEARS) to switch it back.

Whibley and Lavigne got hitched in 2006 and divorced in 2010.

To review: Deryck ended up stuck with Avril's last name -- and Avril ended up ... stuck with Chad Kroger

It's a toss up who got the worst end of that deal.

Turn in your man-card you tool.

You might also see a doctor, to see if surgery can add something obviously lacking between your legs.

... The man looks such a little bitch right now.

It's one thing if your woman doesn't want to take your last name... but taking hers!?

What a balless little bitch.

what a little bitch to take her name...LOL he deserves it. It did it hidden away so he wouldn't have to live the public shame of being a spineless turd.

Well, there was no TMZ in 2006. People actually minded their own business instead of making money snooping through people's private lives.

Now he knows how annoying it is to be expected to take your husband's last name as your own. What last name you are born with is enough!

YOU SPELLED HIS NAME WRONG, YOU HALF-WITS. YOU CAN'T EVEN SPELL THE NAMES OF THE CELEBRITIES WHOSE COAT-TAILS YOU ARE RIDING ON. Try Chad Kroeger.
