Sum 41 star says Avril Lavigne stalker sent him death threats

Sum 41's Deryck Whibley has revealed that a stalker of his ex-wife Avril Lavigne sent him death threats.

The musician married the pop-punk singer in 2006 before they separated three years later.

Speaking to Vice, Whibley said that during their marriage he received "sophisticated" death threats from a man who was stalking Lavigne.

The FBI eventually got involved before the problem got sorted.

He said: "My ex-wife [Lavigne] had a lot of stalkers. And being married to her, they sort of wanted to come after me. There was this one guy from the UK who started sending death threats.

"He was really weird because the stuff he sent had no fingerprints on it and it was at a level that was a little bit more sophisticated. It turned out to be way more serious and he wanted to kill me for some reason. Thankfully the FBI found him over here."
