Mod Sun is finally speaking out about his relationship woes — and it turns out he really was as blindsided as it sounded!
OK, if you haven’t been following, let’s back up a second. Last week, shocking reports hit the internet claiming Avril Lavigne had called off her engagement to Mod. Now, there really wasn’t much information as to why this had happened. TMZ‘s insiders claimed things had been “on and off” for a while as the couple tried to mend their romance, but then when they got in touch with the Karma singer’s team, a rep declared:
“They were together and engaged as of three days ago when he left for tour so if anything has changed that’s news to him.”
The fact Mod didn’t know what was going on was CRAZY!

And things got more complicated when you factored in Tyga. Yup, Avril was spotted out and about with Kylie Jenner‘s ex just before the breakup made waves. Naturally, there was speculation about a cheating scandal, but People‘s sources made a point to clarify Tyga wasn’t a romantic interest to Avril. Hmm… not sure if we’re buying that. Frankly, this whole thing has been confusing as heck, so thank goodness someone’s finally speaking out! Innerestingly that someone is the one who might know the least — but also isn’t trying to keep up appearances: Mod Sun.
The Flames singer, born Derek Ryan Smith, broke his silence on Tuesday. While posting a series of photos from his hectic first week of tour, Mod seemed to allude to his personal troubles as well, writing:
“In 1 week my entire life completely changed…I just know there’s a plan for it all. I’ll keep my head up + always listen to my heart, even when it feels broken Being surrounded by love every night on tour has been an absolute blessing. I have the best friends in the entire world, thanks for always having my back. See you on stage.”

He sounds so sad! Also, this shocking breakup news comes just days after Mod was literally gushing about finding the perfect partner to spend the rest of his life with. While speaking to E! News on February 12 (just two weeks ago!), he shared:
“I have found such a partner in this world to go through the chaos that life gives you. I have found that person. I’m with a real grown woman who has gone through it all 10 times over and she makes me a better person.”
Oof! It sure seems like he didn’t see this coming AT ALL — which just has us wondering even more: what happened?! And why did Avril wait until he was headed on tour to announce this??
Whatever happened, it went down fast and furious! Do you have any predictions at this point, Perezcious readers? Let us know (below)!
