It’s sad it has come to an end but Avril and I are still family and moving forward in the most positive way possible. Our decision to part ways is amicable and she holds a special place in my heart and forever will be a great and amazing friend,” Whibley added. “Thanks to all our family, friends and fans for all the support.” Good for them being positive about the whole situation.
