Well... Sort of! Here's what happened. There's a 30-year-old guy in Salem, Oregon whose name is Avril Lavigne. That's not his birth name . . . he was originally Romany Mesina. He CHOSE to legally change his name to Avril Lavigne.
But that's only one of the many, many terrible decisions he's made in his short life. He's also a registered sex offender and he's been arrested in the past for theft, disorderly conduct, and more.
Somehow, we just heard about him now, though . . . after he was arrested for trespassing on Sunday.
There's no word on whether the real AVRIL LAVIGNE knows about him or what she thinks about him taking her name.
