Well wishes and a speedy recovery to Avril Lavigne.

In a Twitter exchange with fan account @AvrilMusicChart over the weekend, the pop singer revealed that she has been absent from music because of health issues. Lavigne said, in a conversation shared on the @AvrilMusicChart account Tuesday, “I feel bad because I haven’t been able to say anything to the fans to let them (know) why I have 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.”

Fans adopted the hashtags #GetWellSoonAvril and #PrayForAvril on Twitter, which Lavigne thanked them for Sunday. Lavigne married Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger last summer and released her self-titled fifth album last November. She last played live in August, during a string of shows in Japan, according to her Facebook page.
