“I came with Chad because Nickelback got nominated,” she said. “And I’m just here supporting him,” Lavigne told Canada’s eTalk on the red carpet. Meanwhile, Kroeger had his own reasons: “I got tired walking around with my band members, so I went and found hottie here,” he said, referring to Avril.
The former couple has remained close since announcing their plans to split, and regularly join each other in and out of the studio.
Teasing their appearance at the Juno Awards over the weekend, Lavigne also shared a photo with Kroeger exiting a plane for the annual ceremony.
Lavigne also shared a vintage video from 2003, when she won her first award at the ceremony, presented by – ironically – Kroeger and Nickelback.
And later in the night, Lavigne shared photos from the event, captioning one, “Good to be back at the Junos Awards. Feeling healthy and enjoying the positive vibes here.”

Post-breakup, Kroeger and Lavigne have hit the red carpet before, and even joined up for a pre-Grammy party in February.
The couple was married for two years before calling it quits, and vowed to remain friends – which they clearly have.
