Japanese pop star, Ryota, who is the bassist for the Japanese band, One Ok Rock, crossed paths with Avril long before they were in-laws. Avril and the band appeared on the same Japanese TV show in 2013 and crossed paths again when the band was performing at a concert in Canada last year. Their most recent encounter was when Avril sang vocals to the band’s song “Listen.”
