Has Avril Lavigne been keeping serious health issues a secret?
The Canadian pop star worried her fans over the weekend when she revealed in a conversation with fan account @AvrilMusicChart that she's been absent from the public eye recently due to "health issues."
"I feel bad because I haven't been able to say anything to the fans to let them no [sic] why I have been absent," Avril wrote. "I'm torn as I'm quite private. I'm not feeling well. I'm having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers."
After the hashtags #GetWellSoonAvril and #PrayForAvril appeared on Twitter, Avril thanked her fans Sunday.
Although some fans assumed that the 30-year-old "Complicated" singer was having pregnancy problems -- Avril married Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger last July -- her rep quickly shut down those rumors.
"The health issue could not be specified but it was confirmed that Lavigne is not pregnant, as some have speculated," Billboard reports, also confirming the validity of the DM exchange posted by @AvrilMusicChart.
Though according to Billboard associate editor Jason Lipshutz, her rep also sounded "very concerned."
Just spoke to rep for Avril. Could not specify health issue but sounded very concerned. Confirmed it's not pregnancy. http://t.co/IhsaqnAm6X— Jason Lipshutz (@jasonlipshutz) December 9, 2014
Avril was last spotted in September, celebrating her 30th birthday in Las Vegas with close friends amid rumors that her marriage to Chad was on the rocks.
"There's jealousy on both sides," E! News reported. "She flirts, he flirts. She's very insecure to begin with."
