Avril Lavigne was "over love" before she met Mod Sun.

The 'Bite Me' hitmaker - who was previously married to Derryck Whibley and Chad Kroeger - was feeling "jaded" with relationships when she penned the title track to her new album, 'Love Sux', but a few days later, she worked with the 34-year-old singer on their track 'Flames' and she began to rethink her stance.

Appearing on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show', she said: "How funny is that? I went into the studio and I'm literally like, 'Okay, here's where I'm at. I'm over love, I need a hot minute, I'm jaded on love right now.'

"I wrote that song, 'Love Sux,' and that set the tone for this album. Yeah… and then a couple days later, I had a boyfriend."

In a video posted to The Kelly Clarkson Show's Instagram account on Thursday, the "Bite Me" singer, 37, whose new album Love Sux dropped at the end of February, revealed that she actually wrote the American Idol winner's hit song "Breakaway" nearly two decades ago.

Elsewhere on the show, the 37-year-old singer praised Kelly for her "incredible" performance on her 2004 single 'Breakaway', which Avril herself wrote "at a very young age" but ultimately decided against using on her own album.

She said: "Okay so I wrote this song, recorded it for my first album. I did not use it, it went to Kelly, and she slayed. She did an incredible job with it.

"I wrote this song at a very young age, I was leaving my small town, went to the city and took a chance, I took a leap of faith on my career – it was like, a very scary thing.

"Leaving my world behind and taking a chance, was what this song was written about."
