People reports that Kroeger said in an interview with Canada’s eTalk, “Sometimes (the rumors are) funny. When you’re standing in the checkout line at the grocery store and you look over and it’s your face on there. Not the . . . Kardashians . . . and Brangelinas . . it’s ‘Chavril.’ You’re like, ‘Can I buy all these? So that no one can see?'”
- The singer and guitarist told ET Canada, “You know, my dad calls me up and he’s just like, ‘I haven’t slept in 2 days, what’s going on?’ I’m like, ‘Dad you’re not buying all this crap are you?’ You know, I get to hear all the rumor mill stuff. I find it very amusing.”
- You’ll remember Us Weekly and E! News both reported on alleged trouble in the marriage this past September, claiming that Kroeger “has been going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing.”
- Nickelback’s new studio album, No Fixed Address, comes out next Monday (November 17th). The band will launch a six-month North American tour on February 14th, 2015 in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
