Avril Lavigne‘s fans are worried for after she asked them to send her prayers for an undisclosed illness.
The 30-year-old singer was sent a DM by a fan account asking why she hasn’t released a new album in two years.
“I feel bad because I haven’t been able to say anything to the fans to let them no why I’ve been absent. I’m torn as I’m quite private… I’m not feeling well. I’m having some issues. So please keep me in your prayers,” she said to the fan.
Avril‘s rep confirmed to Billboard that the DM is real and said that she is not pregnant.
