Ten days after their sixth anniversary, former White Stripes singer Jack White and his wife Karen Elson have announced that they are getting divorced, and they're marking the occasion by throwing a party tonight in Nashville.
The party will celebrate their marriage and upcoming divorce with “a
positive swing bang hum dinger” with dancing, photos, memories and
“drinks with alcohol in them.” Only close friends and family
allowed–“no plus ones or dead beats.” The couple's publicist sent us a flier with the
address blurred. (Bummer.)
The couple have two kids together, Scarlett (5) and Henry Lee (3). The
statement about their split says: “We remain dear and trusted friends
and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel
so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue
to spend both separately and together watching our children grow.”
White and Elson married on June 1, 2005, in a ceremony overseen by a shaman in Manaus, Brazil.
