However, a spokesperson for White's Third Man Records label has now moved to clarify the comments and insist the star just wants some well-deserved time off.

The ex-White Stripes singer, whose band called it a day in 2011, has since forged his own successful solo career and claims hardly anybody he knows speaks to drummer Meg since the band split.

Jack White thinks it's a songwriter's job to be ''against the world''.

The 'Freedom at 21' singer credits his career to the delta blues musicians of the 1920s and 1930s, and believes all artists should stay true to the honest, confessional style of songwriting they pioneered.

He told The Guardian newspaper: ''As a songwriter, even if you're singing about other people or making up characters, it's still your job to be against the world and that all began in the 1920s and 1930s with these blues singers.

The 'Hotel Yorba' duo found fame in 2001 - a year after divorcing as a couple - becoming one of the biggest rock bands of the last decade, before splitting in 2011, but Jack claims drummer Meg never showed the same level of enthusiasm as himself about the band.

He said: ''In The White Stripes it was impossible to share the good moments with Meg because she was very uninterested. If something nice happened, it wasn't like we would hug or have a drink. That wasn't what went on.
