Jack White - Jack White To Divorce

Rocker Jack White is divorcing his model/singer wife Karen Elson after six years of marriage.
The former White Stripes star wed the British beauty in Brazil in 2005, but the couple - parents of daughter Scarlett and son Henry - announced its split on Friday (10Jun11).
In an email sent out to friends and family, White and Elson write, "We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children.
"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."
However, the parting lovers insist their break-up is more than amicable - and they're throwing a "divorce party" in Nashville, Tennessee to mark the occasion, stating the evening will "re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family."
This is White's second failed marriage. He was previously wed to former White Stripes bandmate Meg White. They remained friends and continued to perform together after they divorced in 2000.

What the hell? Even Jack White can't keep a marriage together? What hope do the rest of us have? Celebrities and their pathetic attempts at marriage make me sick. I married my husband for life. It's tough, it's awful at times, but I made a commitment and it's WONDERFUL too. Grow up, people. A divorce party? Disgusting.
