Avril Lavigne has addressed the conspiracy theory that she was replaced by a body double.

The 39-year-old pop-punk star shot to fame in the early 2000s with hits like Sk8er Boi and, in recent years, rumours have circulated online that she couldn’t take the pressures of fame and was replaced by a body double named Melissa. But she has described such talk as “dumb” even though she doesn’t feel “negative” about the hearsay.

Speaking on the Call Her Daddy podcast, Lavigne said: “I know what you’re talking about.

Meanwhile, the When You’re Gone hitmaker – who was initially married to Deryck Whibley from 2006 until 2010 and then to Chad Kroeger from 2013 until 2015 – has dated the likes of Mod Sun and Tyga in recent years but is currently thought to be single and insisted that she is “awesome” as a partner and would even date herself if she could.
