Talk about an emerging couple not on my bingo card for the year.
Country singer Nate Smith, who got his start from TikTok, was spotted gallivanting around Los Angeles with punk rock icon Avril Lavigne. The two look chipper hanging out together, as paparazzi saw them leaving a dinner, getting into a truck bed, and then skateboarding around a gas station.

Daily Mail reported that Lavigne was seen pulling a hoodie on as she laughed, riding alongside Smith on their skateboards. While the images appear that the two could have been having a flirty night together, TMZ quickly updated that Lavigne said the two were just friends and had no romantic feelings.
#UPDATE — A source with direct knowledge tells TMZ that Avril Lavigne doesn't have a new love interest here in Nate Smith — instead, they're just good pals … skate buddies, it seems. https://t.co/P30uZVRDXs
