Despite rumors they were engaged, it turns out the opposite is true: Kardashian stepbrother Brody Jenner has split from his Canadian pop star girlfriend, Avril Lavigne. The reason for the split? Brody wasn’t ready to settle down, a source tells Life & Style.

"She wanted to settle down, but he wasn't exactly ready," the insider tells the mag. Not only that, but Brody felt beholden to Avril’s whirlwind touring schedule, another source tells Us Weekly. "Every time he wanted to come back and take meetings to get his career back in order, she would make him go to Asia and Europe,” adding, “They were both unhappy because he wants to have his career, she wants him to stay with her.” The same source reports that Avril made Brody turn down “multiple” TV offers.

Brody and Avril began dating in 2009, just after Avril filed for divorce from husband Deryck Whibley. Brody, son of Kardashian stepdad Bruce Jenner, has been linked to The Hills Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari, as well as childhood friend Nicole Richie, according to People.
