Avril Lavigne and a group of friends kicked back on a private yacht in the French Riviera this weekend, with bikinis and designer shades for some fun in the sun.
Paparazzi on the scene caught one rather surprising guest stepping on board for this weekend's party: Lavigne's ex-husband, Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley.
Lavigne, who married Whibley in 2006 and divorced him last year after a yearlong separation, was all smiles as she offered her ex a hello hug on the high seas.
Conspicuously absent? Lavigne's boyfriend Brody Jenner, who was nowhere to be seen.
Earlier this year, 31-year-old Whibley told PopEater he's feeling great these days about his friendship with his former wife, and those "irreconcilable differences" they cited at the time of their split. "We're on good terms now...I even produced some of the songs on her new album." Here's to the happy ex-couple!
