We’re keeping Avril Lavigne in our thoughts.

Responding to a Twitter DM from a fan, the ‘Complicated’ singer revealed that she has quietly been suffering from “health issues,” asking the fan to “keep me in your prayers”:

“I feel bad because I haven’t been able to say anything to the fans to let them [know] why I’ve been absent,” Lavigne wrote. “I’m torn as I’m quite private… I’m not feeling well. I’m having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers.”

Lavigne’s rep confirmed to Billboard that the message exchange was real, but did not specify what illness the singer is suffering from. The rep, however, did confirm that Lavigne is not pregnant.

The fan, who runs the fan account @AvrilMusicChart, later took to Twitter to tweet out the hashtags “#GetWellSoonAvril” and “#PrayForAvril”. Lavigne responded with a simple “thank you,” followed by the angel emoji.

Back in September, Lavigne and husband Chad Kroeger were rumored to be heading for a split, but just last month, the Nickelback frontman laughed off the rumors.

We wish Avril Lavigne all the best and hope she gets well soon!
