Rocker Jack White and Wife Throw a Divorce Party

Friday, 10 Jun 2011 04:38 PM


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - For rocker Jack White and his model wife Karen Elson, parting is such a sweet party!

The couple said they plan a celebration on Friday night in Nashville, Tennessee, in honor of their pending divorce, which they also announced on Friday.

An invitation posted online said the get-together will mark White and Elson's "6th anniversary and their upcoming divorce with a positive swing bang hum dinger."

"The party will include dancing, photos, memories, and drinks with alcohol in them. This is only for close personal friends and family so please no plus ones or dead beats," the invitation said.

White and Elson, who were married in June 2005, have two children together, 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," the couple said in a statement.

They did not say whey they were splitting up.

A photo accompanying the invitation shows White in a Western-style hat and a jacket with skeletal images of bones on it, and Elson hugging him from behind.

White, who is known for singing in a plaintive voice that straddles the line between punk rock and the blues, first gained fame with drummer Meg White in Grammy-Awards winning rock duo The White Stripes.

The White Stripes broke up earlier this year, but Jack White continues to play in band The Ranconteurs.

The British-born Elson is a model-turned singer who last year released her debut album "The Ghost Who Walks."
