Mod Sun was reportedly totally surprised by Avril Lavigne and Tyga's relationship.

Mod Sun was reportedly "blindsided" by Avril Lavigne's new romance with Tyga, according to TMZ. The outlet says that sources close to the singer say he's been beaten up about the breakup and "feels absolutely devastated" after seeing Lavigne and Tyga together in Paris for Fashion Week. The two were spotted locking lips earlier this week.

Another report from Us Weekly reveals that Lavigne and Tyga didn't plan on their relationship becoming a romantic one. “Avril and Tyga never imagined a romance would happen and this was totally unexpected,” a source told the outlet. “They have no idea where things are going but they’re enjoying spending time together. They have great chemistry.” The source added that they were “strictly platonic up until recently,” adding that “since they had already built a foundation of friendship, it was an organic transition to something more.”

Mod Sun and Avril Lavigne first announced they were splitting up, last month, which reportedly came as a shock to Mod Sun. He confirmed the news in a post on Instagram at the time. “In 1 week my entire life completely changed…I just know there’s a plan for it all,” he wrote. “I’ll keep my head up + always listen to my heart, even when it feels broken [broken heart emoji]. Being surrounded by love every night on tour has been an absolute blessing. I have the best friends in the entire world, thanks for always having my back. See you on stage.”

The end of their relationship came shortly after the release of Mod’s latest album, God Save the Teen. On the project, there’s a track titled “Avril’s Song” as well as a collaboration between the two on “Shelter.” “She blew me a kiss, And I didn’t wanna blow my brains out anymore,” he sings at one point. “And she is everything I’m not. Without her, I am lost.”
