Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroger have been dogged with breakup rumors for the past several months, and the Nickelback singer has finally decided to clear the air.

Only, he didn't.

In a interview with Canada's "E-Talk," Chad did his best to avoid the topic, while still discussing the rumors.

"Sometimes it's funny, when you're standing in the checkout line at the grocery store and you look over and it's your face on there. Not the … Kardashians … and Brangelinas … it's Chavril," he told the program. You're like, 'Can I buy all these? So that no one can see?'"

Recently, Chad has made a point to flash his wedding ring for paparazzi, but it hasn't quelled rumors. For her part, Avril didn't help the situation when she showed up without her husband at her birthday party in Las Vegas in September.

"My family members hear this stuff … and then they call me up very concerned," Chad said. "I'm like, 'Dad, you're not buying all this crap, are you?'"

He continued, "All that stuff that people say behind each other's back is minuscule, pales in comparison to the world of celebrity. That's like high school multiplied exponentially. It's ridiculous."
