Avril Lavigne and Tyga’s low-key romance has reportedly ended after about three months of dating. TMZ reported that the pair split a couple of weeks ago after “the romance just ran its course,” adding the decision was “mutual” and there are “no hard feelings.” Reps for Lavigne declined to comment on the split to POPSUGAR, while Tyga’s reps did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s inquiry.
Speculation that Lavigne and Tyga were dating began on Feb. 20 when photos of the musicians hugging outside of Nobu in Los Angeles were published by TMZ, after which the pair were spotted on multiple occasions showing PDA at events and on dates.
There doesn’t seem to be any drama involved with this breakup, which tracks, considering the pair’s relationship was reportedly casual. “They’re still not exclusive and just getting to know each other,” a source told People at the end of March. “They’re taking things very slowly to be on the safe side and really get to know each other before diving into something serious.”
Most of the drama surrounding Lavigne and Tyga’s brief romance involved Lavigne’s ex-fiancé Mod Sun, who Lavigne started dating in early 2021 and got engaged to in March 2022. The pair reportedly experienced turbulence in their relationship beginning in 2023, with a source telling People in February that they’d been “on and off for the past two months.” A source confirmed to POPSUGAR on Feb. 21 that Mod Sun and Lavigne had officially split after two years of dating.
Sun seemingly had a hard time with Lavigne moving on with Tyga. In footage obtained by TMZ from a March 15 show at Irving Plaza in New York, rapper Travie McCoy performed the Gym Class Heroes song “Cupid’s Chokehold,” during which he called Sun “one of the three most loyal” people he knows and yelled, “F*ck Tyga!” as Sun stood by without protest.
However, Lavigne and Tyga were unbothered by Sun and his friend’s antics as they were spotted holding hands on a date night at restaurant Catch Steak in West Hollywood. So while the pair may have called it quits, drama with exes seemingly had nothing to do with it.
