Avril Lavigne is Owed $2 Million From YouTube

Avril Lavigne and husband Deryck Whibley exit Madeos restaurant with a doggy bag on Sunday night.

The 23-year-old singer’s music video “Girlfriend” became YouTube’s most-viewed video ever, and has been watched more than 93 million times. Lavigne‘s manager says YouTube owes her around $2 million for views of her videos on YouTube.

Avril‘s fans have been banding together to inflate the play count artificially by using a constantly refreshing website that adds one pageview every 15 seconds to her music video.

A YouTube spokesperson made the following statement: “We have safeguards in place that limit the efficiency of this type of behavior, to make sure that advertising campaigns running on YouTube only reach legitimate viewers and are in no way affected by inflated view counts or gaming activities.”
