Mod Sun recently took to his Instagram page to give an update on how he’s been doing since his split with his ex, Lavigne. While the singer didn’t say what happened between them that may have caused the breakup, he did reveal that he was fine, although his heart “feels broken.”
He said, “In one week my whole life changed completely… I just know there is a plan for everything. I’ll keep my head up + always listen to my heart, even when it feels broken.” The singer continued, “Being surrounded by love every night on tour has been an absolute blessing. I have the best friends in the whole world, thanks for always having my back. See you on stage.”
A series of images accompanied Mod Sun’s announcement. The first picture showed the musician taking a mirror selfie, while others showed him performing for a crowd of fans and playing keyboards. Overall, he looked like he was in a good place, surrounded by love and great energy.
Fans sympathize with Mod Sun
Fans were quick to show their support for the heartbroken singer, with some even going so far as to call out Lavigne for dumping him, saying, “Karma is real.”
One empathetic fan said: “Not going to lie, I cried so hard when I heard you and Avril called off your engagement. Like crying.”
Another spoke of how sensitive the singer’s heart was as a Minnesotan, saying: “People shift up way too fast. Minnesota hearts are not designed for that chaos.”
While some chose to focus on supporting the singer, others took the opportunity to call out Lavigne.
One of Mod Sun’s followers wrote, “You have faced bigger challenges in life and you always came out on top! She lost the best thing that ever happened to her and karma is real. You deserve better and I’m glad you will have a chance to find someone worthy of your king.”
Avril Lavigne called off her engagement
On February 21, it was confirmed that Lavigne had called off her engagement to Mod Sun, calling it quits on their relationship nearly a year after he proposed to her in Paris.
TMZ reported at the time that the former couple had been trying to make things work but just couldn’t and needed to take a break from each other. A source to the news outlet also claimed that there was no cheating involved.
Despite claims that neither party cheated on the other, Lavigne was seen hanging out with rapper Tyga at the popular NOBU restaurant just before calling off her engagement to Mod Sun. The pair looked comfortable with each other and even shared an intimate hug before going their separate ways.
Although Tyga and Lavigne are known to be friends, their meeting in that moment has raised some eyebrows.
Mod Sun says Avril Lavigne changed her life
Shortly before Lavigne called off her engagement, Mod Sun, in an interview with E! News, gushed about his now ex-fiancee and how she changed his life and saved him. The singer credited Lavigne with making him stop feeling like a “kid” and also helping him mature.
He then said, “I have found such a partner in this world to go through the chaos that life throws at you. I have found that person. I am with a really grown woman who has been through it all ten times over and she does me into a better person.”
Mod Sun also talked about how Lavigne saved him from the “idea of self-destruction” and freed him from his “self-sabotage” button. He revealed that he planned to give her a beautiful and memorable wedding.
The “Girlfriend” singer has yet to release an official statement since calling off their engagement.
