Avril Lavigne finalises divorce

Avril Lavigne and rocker Deryck Whibley have finalised their divorce - and the division of their guitars.

Court records show a judge approved terms of the breakup, which call for each performer to keep the rights to their song catalogues, awards and guitars.

Neither side is entitled to spousal support.

Avril, the 26-year-old punk-pop singer who burst to fame with her 2002 album Let's Go, filed for divorce in October 2009. She cited irreconcilable differences for her split from Whibley, 30, guitarist and vocalist with the band Sum 41.

The former couple got together when Avril was 17, and married in July 2006 and have no children together.
