Model turned singer Karen Elson and her White Stripes musician husband Jack White have announced they are divorcing after six years of marriage. White, 35 and Elson, 32 said “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.”
After meeting on the set of the White Stripes ‘Blue Orchid’ video, the couple were married by a shaman in a canoe on the Amazon River in Brazil in June 2005. Their children are five and three years of age. However, true to the pair’s unconventional approach to life, rather than lamenting their separation, they have decided to throw a party to celebrate.
“In honour of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party,” continued the statement. “An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.” The invitation for tonight’s party, asks guests to join Karen and Jack to ‘celebrate their 6th anniversary and their upcoming divorce with a positive swing bang hum dinger’. Leaked online today, it also states that the party is ‘only for close personal friends and family’ and requests that guests do not bring ‘plus ones or dead beats’.
