Six year marriage is over

Jack White and British model / singer Karen Elson have confirmed that they are to divorce.

Jack White and Karen Elson make for an imposing couple. One is a hugely respected songwriter, while the other is a successful model. Raising two children together, it seems that the marriage has not quite worked out.

Issuing a short statement, the pair have confirmed that they are to divorce. Explaining that intend to remain close friends, Jack White and Karen Elson wrote:

"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. In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party. An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family."
