Pop star Avril Lavigne has revealed it was confiding in girlfriends that got her through her divorce from ex husband, Deryck Whibley.
Lavigne has now moved in, and is dating Brody Jenner from the Hills, and added that writing new songs had helped her move on.
Speaking to TV Week, she explained, “They were there for me. It did me really good to be able to tell them everything.
“It helped me come to terms with the things that had happened.”
She added: “It also helped put my feelings down in paper. It was comforting. It’s always been like that for me. When I was a kid, I had my diary to confide everything in. Now I write songs. It really was a form of healing.”
