Avril Lavigne

E! NEWS -- Things are on the up and up for Avril Lavigne.

Now more than two years after the pop rock singer went public with her Lyme disease diagnosis, a source tells E! News exclusively her health, music career and personal life is taking a turn for the better.

"Avril is in a really good place right now," our insider shares. "Her recovery has been going well and she's been getting stronger and stronger. She has more energy and has even been exercising."

The chronic condition left Lavigne, 32, bedridden for five months and sidelined her professional endeavors up until last December when she announced her sixth studio album. And good news, Avril fans! It appears new music from the "Complicated" singer (who recently moved into a new Los Angeles home) is closer than ever.

"She should be releasing new music by the end of the year," the source reveals. "It's been a slow process."

So what can music lovers expect from Lavigne now that her "Sk8r Boi" days are over? We're told the Canadian star drew inspiration from personal experiences related to Lyme disease and her 2015 divorce from Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger.

"She writes her own material and she's been through a lot with her marriage and her illness," the source explains. "She has a lot to say."

There's also a new man in Avril's life, who E! News has learned is music producer J.R. Rotem. The Israeli-American insider and Lavigne were photographed holding hands while out in Los Angeles Monday evening, and according to our source, things are moving toward a romantic relationship.

"J.R. is a producer she's been working with," the source says, describing the Israeli-American music man as successful and sober. "He's respected in the industry. Lately, they've started hanging out socially and there's definitely chemistry there. They're both so passionate about music."

The insider says of the friends, "They've been out a few times now and things seem to be headed in a romantic direction."

Lavigne was last linked to Ryan Cabreraafter the pair was spotted getting cozy on a dinner date and it was revealed that the singer-songwriter was living with her following a separate breakup.

Avril Lavigne

This morning on “Good Morning America” singer Avril Lavigne sat down for an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Jesse Palmer to discuss her debilitating Lyme disease diagnosis.

Singer Avril Lavigne said she’s seeing progress in her treatment for Lyme disease, which struck her last year while she was on tour.

Her treatment regimen has included multiple antibiotics and ample rest.

“I'm about halfway through my treatment,” the Canadian singer said in an interview with ABC News’ Jesse Palmer. "I'm doing a lot better. Seeing a lot of progress. ... I'm just really grateful to know that, like, I will make [a] 100 percent recovery."

Lavigne, 30, said trying to get a diagnosis was the worst time of her life.

“I literally became bedridden last October,” the “Complicated” singer said, adding that she saw multiple specialists who failed to get to the root of the problem. “They would pull up their computer and be like, ‘Chronic fatigue syndrome.’ Or, ‘Why don't you try to get out of bed, Avril, and just go play the piano?’ It's like, ‘Are you depressed?’”

Lavigne said she would wake up with night sweats and felt as though she had the flu.

“This went on and off for a month,” she said. "And I saw my doctor right away, got blood tests, got swabbed, and they didn't really know what was wrong with me."

It wasn’t until two months into the symptoms that she said she suspected Lyme disease.

“I started going to other doctors and, like, specifically telling them and asking, like, ‘I have Lyme disease. I know I do. Can you check me?’” she said. "Then I finally figured out, 'Find a Lyme specialist.'"

"And the thing is, when you're a specialist, you also really know the disease inside and out and you can diagnose their symptoms," Lavigne said.

After getting the diagnosis of Lyme disease, which Lavigne believes she got from a tick bite last spring, the singer was bedridden for five months in her Ontario home.

Lavigne, who is married to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, said her family and fans have helped her through her ordeal.

Many fans, she said, made videos and sent her letters and posters and other items to show their support.

“I sat there in my bed and I watched the videos and, like, did exactly what I'm doing now. I cried through the whole thing,” she said, laughing. “Honestly, I felt very, very loved. And it sounds silly saying it, but I really truly did feel my fans through the process.”

Members of an Islamic political party who tried to ban pop singing star Avril Lavigne's coming concert in Malaysia are vowing to protest at her show this Friday, after the singer got the go-ahead to have her concert. Lavigne was given the green light after her gig had been cancelled following protests from Malaysia’s opposition party, the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS), calling the pop star "too sexy" to perform in the mostly Muslim country. The show was reportedly rejected by the Malaysian government, but was later approved after officials deemed Lavigne was "not a bad influence, especially on the young people of the country." But PAS leader Nasrudin Hassan insists the group will continue to oppose the pop icon's performance.He says, "A concert of this nature is not conducive to teach the younger generation to become good citizens, upright and competitive, but instead would weaken them morally and mentally. "If the concert organizers do not heed this warning to cancel the concert, PAS youth will order all Muslim youth to turn up and protest the concert in order to prevent it from taking place." Avril is going to take the stage in the country’s capital Kuala Lumpur, kicking off a month-long tour of Asia.

Singing star Avril Lavigne plans on putting her music career on hold after landing her first lead role in a new movie. Avril has toyed with acting in the past, taking on minor roles in last year’s The Flock and the 2006 film Fast Food Nation. She also provided the voice for a character in 2006 animated movie Over The Hedge. But now Lavigne is stepping up her career as a serious thespian with her first starring role, and she is insisting it will be totally different to her previous work. She tells the British newspaper The London Paper, "I’ve got a film role coming up - something you wouldn’t expect from me, something deep and dark."

Pop singer Avril Lavigne is launching a attack on the paparazzi for making Britney Spears life hell, calling them "f**king stalkers".The outspoken Lavigne herself has been the victim of the paparazzi’s relentless pursuits, which have resulted in traffic violations and car accidents.And Lavigne feels sympathy for Spears, who is plagued by the ever intrusive photographers on a much bigger and more damaging scale than her. She tells Maxim magazine, "No one else has it as hard as Britney. I feel bad for her. How does she even think with all those flashbulbs? When I’m being followed, everything’s thrown off. They run red lights. They cause accidents.She can’t even walk to her car. F**king stalkers."

Avril Lavigne is being sued by a 70s rock band over claims she copied one of their songs.Songwriters Tommy Dunbar and James Gangwer, members of The Rubinoos, allege Lavigne's hit 2007 single 'Girlfriend' is strikingly similar to their 1979song 'I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend'.Dunbar - who filed the lawsuit in San Francisco on July 2 - said: "We are not so naive as to chalk it up to some sort of cosmic coincidence."The lyric, the metre, the rhythm - they're identical."However, Lavigne's manager, Terry McBride, insists 'Girlfriend' has no resemblance to 'I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend'.He said: "The suit has no basis. There's nothing similar. Our musicologist says there are no similarities of melody, choral progression or metre."Despite saying the songs have no similarities, McBride says he would be prepared to settle the case out of court.He added: "You are forced to consider doing this because American lawyers can do these cases on contingency. If I defend and win, it costs me$300,000. If I go to get my costs back, the other party declares bankruptcy.You end up footing the bill."Avril has insurance that covers these sort of suits that are so prevalent in this business."The case is due to be heard in California on August 28.

Avril Lavigne is set to swap singing for acting.The diminutive star, who recently had roles in 'Fast Food Nation' and 'The Flock', is on the look out for a lead Hollywood role.

No drugs for Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne considered having a goth wedding but eventually gave into her childhood dream of a traditional ceremony.The punk-pop singer married Sum 41 front man Deryck Whibley last July and surprised their rock fans by having a conventional service. Avril, 22, said in an interview with Jane magazine: "I wanted to say, 'Let's totally have a rock 'n' roll, goth wedding.'"But at the same time I thought, 'I've been dreaming about my wedding day since I was a little girl. I have to wear the white dress.' I wanted to be a princess.'"People thought that I would have some black wedding dress, and I would have."But at the same time, I was thinking about the wedding pictures, and I wanted to be in style. I didn't want to be thinking 20 years later, 'Oh, why did I wear my hair like that?' "The 'Sk8r Boi' singer also claims she has changed her husband for the better. Avril said: "I'm the best thing that's ever happened to him! We have a really good, strong relationship."He doesn't do drugs. Clearly, he used to, because he talked about it, but I wouldn't be with someone who did, and I made that very clear to him when we first started dating."I've never done cocaine in my life, and I'm proud of that. I am 100 percent against drugs."
