Avril Lavigne reportedly suffering from an undisclosed health problem

'Please keep me in your prayers,' said an alleged message from the singer

Avril Lavigne is reportedly suffering from an undisclosed health problem.

Billboard cites a conversation allegedly held between Lavigne and a fan on Twitter, in which the singer admits to ‘health issues’, apparently writing: “I feel bad because I haven’t been able to say anything to the fans to let them no [sic] why I’ve been absent. 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 publicly posted a “thank you” on Twitter when the same fan account, @AvrilMusicChart, posted the message “#GetWellSoonAvril #PrayForAvril”.

Avril Lavigne released her last, self-titled album in 2013. It followed 2011’s ‘Goodbye Lullaby’. ‘Avril Lavigne’ featured ‘Let Me Go’, a duet with her second husband, Nickleback’s Chad Kroeger, as well ‘Bad Girl’, which featured Marilyn Manson.
