Jack White Restraining Order From Ex-Wife Karen Elson, Slams Black Keys Singer: "That A**hole"

Karen Elson, Jack White's ex-wife, has filed a restraining order against The Raconteurs singer after claiming he is a threat to safety. Elson, a model and musician, sent emails to a judge saying that because of White's actions, she "fears for her safety and that of their children." The order was approved on 17th July pending a court hearing on 29th August.

According to the Nashville City Paper via The Independent, White is barred from "any contact with Karen Elson whatsoever except as it relates to parenting time with the parties' minor children." With regards to the specific details of White's supposedly threatening emails, he expresses a peculiar venom to Dan Auerbach, lead singer of The Black Keys.

Is Jack White Really A Threat To His Ex-Wife & Children?

Who knows where White's beef with The Black Keys' singer came from but TMZ reports that he sent an email to Karen dated 16th July complaining that their children will go to school together: "My concern with Auerbach is because I don't want the kids involved in any of that crap[...]That's a possible twelve f***ing years I'm going to have to be sitting in kids chairs next to that a**hole with other people trying to lump us in together."

Their Pending Divorce Was Amicable in 2011 But Now It Seems Not
Quite So.

Perhaps his fury stems from issues suggested in original restraining order reports that The White Stripes lead criticised Elson for associating with rival musicians: could Auerbach have been one of them? With clearly a bee buzzing about the guitarist's bonnet, he adds "[Auerbach] gets yet another free reign to follow me around and copy me and push himself into my world."

The couple married in 2005 in Brazil but they broke up in 2011 with a divorce party to make and break their union of marriage. They have two children together, Scarlett Teresa, 7, and Henry Lee, 5 who will apparently be in the same school as Sadie Little, Auerbach's daughter.

Jack White has not provided any comment on the matter.
