  • Avril Lavigne and Mod Sun, who released a single together called "Flames" in January 2021, were spotted packing on the PDA at the beach in Santa Monica, California, for Mod Sun's 34th birthday in March 2021.

    The couple got engaged on March 27, 2022, in Paris, France, the two both revealed via Instagram on April 7, 2022.

    On February 21, 2023, TMZ reported that Lavigne had called off the pair's engagement. Mod Sun's rep made it sound like he was blindsided, telling TMZ, “They were together and engaged as of 3 days ago when he left for tour, so if anything has changed that's news to him.” 

    He seemingly addressed the breakup in an Instagram post shared on February 28. He wrote, “In 1 week my entire life completely changed… I just know there’s a plan for it all. I’ll keep my head up + always listen to my heart, even when it feels broken. Being surrounded by love every night on tour has been an absolute blessing. I have the best friends in the entire world, thanks for always having my back. See you on stage.”
