Chad Kroeger’s only been married to Avril Lavigne for a little over a year, but that hasn’t stopped the lead vocalist from joking around about the break-up rumours that have recently been swirling.

“You know my dad calls me up and he’s just like, “I haven’t slept in 2 days, what’s going on?’ I’m like, “Dad you’re not buying all this crap are you?’ You know, I get to hear all the rumour mill stuff. I find it very amusing,” he tells ET Canada in Los Angeles.

Fans pointed out that Lavigne celebrated her 30th birthday in September, solo, with no signs of Kroeger at the event. But according to the Nickelback singer, the rumours are all just…rumours. In fact, he tries his best to explain what the rumour mill is like as a celebrity figure.

“When you get out of high school, and it’s like ugh, okay. All that rumour crap. All that stuff that people say behind each other’s backs is minuscule, pales in comparison to the world of celebrity or being married to a celebrity,” says Kroeger. “That’s high school multiplied exponentially. It’s ridiculous. How many times has Jennifer Aniston been pregnant this year? A dozen?”;

Kroeger adds: “Let’s start a new rumour. I’m pregnant.”

In the meantime, Kroeger will be focusing on Nickelback’s upcoming announced “No Fixed Address”; tour which will kick off in North America on February 14, 2015 and trek through 61 shows throughout the U.S. and Canada.
