View gallery

The press release we just received announcing Jack White and his wife of six years, model/musician Karen Elson, are getting divorced is so strange, we are going to run it here so you can experience the confusion of reading it for yourself. Note: It came with the attached "Divorce Party Invitation." As music writer Andy Downing wondered on Twitter, how long before Jack and Karen pretend to be siblings and start a band?

To whom it may concern:

karen elson and jack white announce today that they are getting divorced.

"we remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents 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 re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family."

with love

Karen Elson and Jack White
