Avril Lavigne had some special support at a party to launch her Abbey Dawn accessories line in L.A.: her ex-husband, Deryck Whibley!

The Sum41 rocker came out to the JustFabulous party at the Viper Room, and even shared a hug with Lavigne, who reportedly split from her boyfriend Brody Jenner in January. Whibley also posed for pictures at the event and congratulated Lavigne on her hard work.

And Lavigne wasn't simply enjoying her party: she performed a set packed with her hits (including "Girlfriend" and "My Happy Ending") for a packed house, which included Taylor Momsen, Mena Suvari and Kimora Lee Simmons, who introduced the rocker before her performance. (The concert was also streamed live on the Internet for fans who couldn't make it.)

A slipped disc and a doctor's warning just wouldn't stop the rock – at least not at first.

It shows Whibley undergoing an MRI and then performing with his band – against doctor's orders.

Deryck Whibley, still recovering from injuries after being attacked in Japan, and his bandmates have decided to cancel their spot on the Vans Warped Tour this week so he can fully recover.

"Knowing that they are unable to deliver their signature high energy show, Sum 41 made the tough decision that a break is needed while Deryck begins rehabilitation for the slipped disc," the group said in a statement Wednesday.

The rocker's condition has not improved but he "is expected to make a full recovery with the necessary treatment and rest," says the band.

Less than a month after amicably splitting from wife Avril Lavigne, Deryck Whibley hit the town in Las Vegas Friday night.

The Sum 41 singer celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Mirage where he was spotted getting close with a new woman – model/designer Hanna Beth Merjos.

Following dinner at Stack – which Whibley and Merjos entered hand-in-hand – the pair then headed to the Slash and Friends show, which featured a performance by the Guns N' Roses guitarist, as well as Tommy Lee and Daughtry.

Whibley and Merjos were later spotted getting cozy at Jet Nightclub with friends until leaving just before 3 a.m.

A rep for Whibley tells PEOPLE: "Deryck is in Las Vegas celebrating a friend's opening with a group of his close friends, including his best friend Rob Dipple and Rob's girlfriend."

The couple – who married in 2006, when Lavigne was 21 – announced their split on Thursday after weeks of speculation of trouble in the marriage. "I am grateful for our time together, and I am grateful and blessed for our remaining friendship," Lavigne wrote on her Web site.
