Divorcing couple Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley collaborating on an album together was probably not the brightest of ideas. However, they thought they were different. Although they announced their split in September of last year, the former couple are still working on Avril’s album together – but it’s not going so well! Avril was supposed to release her next album, Pink Crust, in November of last year. That date was moved to “early 2010″ which is now looking more like “mid-2010.” Let’s just take a moment to note that the name of the album is Pink Crust – I mean, clearly, this was doomed from the start.
Deryck is producing the new album, an apparent ode to some rare STD, and a music producer close to the project reveals that there is all kinds of drama going on trying to get this done. “The first eight songs, Avril and Deryck worked with a lot of love and it came easy. But there’s three or four more to do and they just ain’t feeling it. It’ll be a terrific album if they can put this aside for a month or so and concentrate on what matters – the music,” the source said.
It’s hard to whistle while you work when your rocker ex-husband is demanding tons of dinero from all the hard work you have put into your music and fashion lines! Under California law, the money needs to be divided fairly between Avril and Deryck. Not the best circumstances for a healthy working environment. [Photo: Getty Images]
