AceShowbiz - Avril Lavigne is NOT dead and replaced by an imposter. A conspiracy theory claimed that Avril killed herself in 2003 and was replaced by a look-alike called Melissa Vandella. As the "Girlfriend" hitmaker marked the 15th anniversary of her debut single "Complicated", those claims have resurfaced.

Avril signed a new record deal in March and has been working for her new LP. "For this album I have a new team behind me and I just signed with BMG," she shared, "I've been working really hard on the new music and it's a reflection of my journey over the last few years. At this point in my career and in my life, I just wanted to put fresh energy around me and I feel like I'm having somewhat of a rebirth in my life."
