Canadian musician Avril Lavigne has been keeping herself out of the public eye for the past few years due to Lyme Disease but she’s healthy enough now that she's starting to make a bit of a comeback.
And part of that comeback includes finding a new romantic interest, and a rich one at that, ‘cause her new boyfriend, Phillip Sarofim, is the heir to over $1 billion dollars.
So who exactly is he? And where’s all this money coming from anyway?
Phillip Sarofim son of Texan billionaire "Fayez Sarofim" Fayez was born in Cairo, Egypt. so Philip have the Egyptian nationality and also the American one!!! pic.twitter.com/aKfCRpBGXe— Avril Lavigne Egypt (@avril_strong) April 25, 2018
Sarofim’s father, Fayez, is reportedly worth $1.48 billion dollars.
He’s the second largest shareholder in Kinder Morgan and also owns a stake of the Houston Texans NFL team.
In 2015 he was named the 847th richest person on the entire planet.
So she’s dating the son of a VERY VERY rich man.
Like Lavigne, Sarofrim has been married before, he was previously married to a woman named Lori Krohn.
In a bit of a weird twist Sarofim’s billionaire father then married his own son’s mother-in-law.
In case you’ve forgotten Lavigne herself was once married to Chad Kroeger of the band Nickleback from 2013-2015.
She was also married before that to Deryck Whibley of the band Sum 41 from 2006-2010.
Lavigne and Sarofim apparently met a dinner party hosted by a mutual friend of theirs and have been seeing each other for a few months now.
We're all very happy that Lavigne is finally getting out and seeing someone now.
