Sources say the rapper and rocker have been spending plenty of time together lately, even with her engagement to Mod Sun last March.

In the week following Valentine's Day, there's been plenty of relationship drama playing out in the media. The situation surrounding Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox continues to captivate curious fans as the actress denies any rumours of infidelity. At the same time, their good friend Avril Lavigne has been spending plenty of time with a certain rapper lately.

As TMZ notes, the Canadian rocker was engaged to Good Mourning creator Mod Sun last March. Earlier this month he spoke candidly with E! News about a song dedicated to her on his recently released God Save The Teen album, called "Avril's Song." Speaking on his relationship, the artist said, "I have found such a partner in this world to go through the chaos that life gives you. I have found that person. I'm with a real grown woman who has gone through it all 10 times over. She makes me a better person."

So... Why is Avril Cozying Up with Tyga?

As shown in the images above, Lavigne was photographed outside NOBU in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 19). At the time, she was grabbing dinner with a group of friends – including "Rack City" hitmaker Tyga. In the snapshots circulating online, they stand by the restaurant's valet booth and share a hug while waiting for their vehicles.

It turns out the unexpected duo was travelling together from the popular eatery. Many thought their public display of affection was nothing more than a goodbye hug. Now that we know they left NOBU in the same car, though, eyebrows are being raised online. A source tells TMZ that Lavigne and Tyga have become close recently. The nature of their relationship, however, remains unclear at this time.

Avril's Relationship with Mod Sun

The pair's aforementioned engagement took place in the world's most romantic city – Paris. They romanced each other for approximately a year before the creative popped the question. On his new single dedicated to the "Sk8er Boi" artist, Mod markedly sings about Lavigne helping him through some of his darkest days and suicidal struggles.

"She blew me a kiss, And I didn't wanna blow my brains out anymore / And she is everything I'm not. Without her, I am lost," are among the lyrics penned by the 35-year-old on "Avril's Song." Reports reveal that Mod Sun wasn't at dinner with his partner and Tyga over the weekend, however, they did attend a pre-Grammys party as a couple earlier in February. Check back later for any updates on the situation.
