The Nickelback frontman was spotted collecting several boxes and some of his most treasured items, including two guitars, from their $5.4 million property in Sherman Oaks, which they purchased together in July, just hours after the 'Hello Kitty' singer confirmed their split on Instagram on Wednesday (02.09.15).
The 40-year-old rocker was accompanied by an unidentified young woman, who helped him move his belongings, which also included a fan, into his vehicle, according to UsMagazine.com.
The former couple spent most of their time living in their native Canada since getting married in the South of France in July 2013, but a source recently revealed Avril, who has been battling Lyme disease since last year, is building a new life for herself in LA.
The insider said: ''Avril is still sick, so she's not working much--just here and there. It's been a tough year. But these days, she's living in L.A. and has a very close, supportive group of friends. She's focused on her recovery but she knows it's going to take time.''
The pair, whose marriage was first rumoured to be on the rocks last September, decided to end their two-year marriage because they ''didn't see eye to eye on a lot of things.''
But while announcing their separation this week, the 'Complicated' hitmaker insisted they are still ''the best of friends.''
She wrote: ''It is with heavy hearts that Chad and I announce our separation today. Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support.''
