Us Weekly first reported on Sept. 17 that the pair had called it quits after three years and one month of marriage.

"She dumped him and told him she was leaving him. She wants to move on," a source told Us, adding that she forced him out of their $9.5 million, 12,000-square-foot estate in L.A.'s Bel Air. 

Whibley, 29, "is crushed," another insider told Us then.

The following day, Lavigne confirmed on her blog that she was separating from her Sum 41 rocker husband.
