White Slams Accusations Wedding Was Publicity Stunt

LATEST: WHITE STRIPES rocker JACK WHITE has slammed reports his marriage to model KAREN ELSON last Tuesday (02JUN05) was a publicity stunt to promote today's (06JUN05) release of his new album, GET BEHIND ME SATAN.

The SEVEN NATION ARMY singer followed in the footsteps of his ex-girlfriend RENEE ZELLWEGER - who secretly wed country singer KENNY CHESNEY last month (09MAY05) - by exchanging vows with Elson in a shock wedding in Brazil, after a whirlwind five-week romance.

White's bandmate and reported ex-wife MEG WHITE served as bridesmaid and the duo's manager IAN MONTONE took on best man duties as the couple were wed by a shaman.

But White's baffled by claims the wedding was fake, insisting, "It's definitely for real.

"We knew we were in love probably from the moment we met each other. Whether it was going to happen a year from now or three days later, it was just going to happen."

Zellweger split from White in September (04) after a two-year relationship.
