According to reports, Avril and Chad have been dating for half a year before proposing marriage, which would mean they began seeing each other in February, but he and Kristen didn't break up until May.
When the engagement went public on 21 August
, Kristen took to Twitter to express her shock saying: "The moment u find out ur ex of four months engaged the girl he was cheating on you with! #classic (sic)."
In April, Chad admitted on the WNCI radio talkshow, Dave & Jimmy
