Although singer and song-writer Avril Lavigne has made her affection for skater boys quite clear, her new beau is definitely much cooler. It appears that Lavigne has quietly been dating Phillip Sarofim who is the son of Texas billionaire Fayez Sarofim. The 33-year-old has stepped back into the limelight, having revealed her new record, after a nearly five-year hiatus from the music industry. She went MIA for a while following her struggle against Lyme disease, but the Complicated singer seems to be healthier and happier now, with a new record on its way and a new man in her life. She has been clicked out and about with Phillip in the recent past, but fans were unsure of the mystery man’s identity.
Although E! News reported via a source that the relationship is a fairly new one – about two or three months so far – and started after the end of Avril’s relationship with the Canadian music producer, J.R. Rotem. The pair dated for about 9 months before going their separate ways and moving on. Avril has was also married to Chad Kroeger – from 2013-2015 – and Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley – from 2006 to 2010 – and as for Phillip’s pedigree, he has four siblings and was previously married as well. We hope Avril finds happiness in her new relationship!
