Jack White and his model wife Karen Elson have announced their split with a divorce party on their wedding anniversary to celebrate the “making and breaking of the sacred union of marriage”. The couple met when filming the video clip for Blue Orchid in 2005 and were married shortly after with Meg White as maid of honour and The White Stripes manager Ian Montone as best man.
The couple of have two children together, Scarlett, 5, and Henry Lee, 4, which makes the divorce a little bit more sad, but the couple have shared some very nice sentiments with the public in a statement “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.”
Luckily for the kids, Jack White has a track record of keeping a good relationship with ex-wives. He was married to band mate Meg White when The White Stripes formed back around 1997.
