Avril Lavigne's Ex

Finally Free From Her Name ...

Only Took Him 3 Years

6/16/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Deryck Whibley Name ChangeSum 41 singer Deryck Lavigne Whibley has officially erased Avril Lavigne from his life, and ... more importantly, his signature -- a judge just granted his name change.

The rocker’s request to drop Avril's name was stamped on Thursday. As we first revealed, Whibley had secretly taken her name during their 2006 marriage ... to become Deryck Jason Lavigne Whibley. Deryck's name change was filed a few months after Lavigne married Nickelback frontman Chad Kroger ... which is probably not a coincidence. The fact Deryck has a new fiancée probably influenced the change too.

"Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?"

With everything that has happened to his health recently, a fresh start sounds like a good idea. Get rid of the things that remind you of hard times (like your x wifes name) and look forward to the future.

I really don't get why you have to (or chose to) change your name when you marry someone.

He's so ugly and RATCHETT there could be another leprechaun movie starring him without the help of special effects make up. Did Avril get warts for touching that toad? And his new fiancé is just marrying him to get a decent paycheck.

At least he didn't get her name tattooed in huge script across his chest, back or neck.

Women should stop fully taking the husband's name too. Keep your own or hyphenate.

This guy is so pathetic and such a ***** I'd be surprised if Avril wasn't the one using a strap-on and making him the wife.
