Jack White and Karen Elson to divorce, throw party

Former White Stripes frontman Jack White and model Karen Elson have split up, according to their rep. The couple, who wed in 2005, released the following 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.”

White and Elson clearly are not lamenting the break-up, and are even throwing a “divorce party” to celebrate their time together. “An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family,” White and Elson said in the statement.
