Regular readers of the Inquisitr know that Jack White is my soul mate, so this post will be a huge exercise in objectivity. You’re welcome.
The most epic musical genius of our generation and wife Karen Elson are divorcing, it seems, but the notoriously private musician has taken the interesting step of hosting an event to mark their split. (Which, if you’ve been through a for-the-better divorce or witnessed one, actually doesn’t seem like too bad of an idea.) The event is on tonight in Nashville, and the invitation below reads:
“Karen Elson and Jack White kindly request the presence…at a party to celebrate their 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.
“Please help us celebrate together this anniversary of the making and breaking of the sacred union of marriage with our best friends and animals.”
White and Elson, who married on June 1st of 2005, released a statement about the split and the party, acknowledging their intent to parent together and remain friends:
“We remain dear and trusted friends and coparents to our wonderful children 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.
“In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party, an evening together in Nashville to reaffirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.”
It was also reported that OMG, Jack White, we should totally get married.
