After meeting in the making of the ‘Blue Orchid’ music video, marrying in 2005, announcing their divorce in 2010 and throwing a celebratory 6th anniversary/divorce party to follow (unusual, to say the least), 34 year old model Karen Elson has now taken out a restraining order against White Stripes band member and former husband, Jack White.
The court order, that was issued last month, states that, at least until the hearing at the end of this month, White is not allowed any contact with his ex-wife unless it relates to “parenting time with the parties’ minor children” and even then, only via email.
Although reports claim that Elson emailed White, telling him how he was an amazing father, she told the court that she wants the restraining order due to the harassment and embarrassment made by White and her fear for her and her children’s safety. This bullying was allegedly one of the biggest factors of their marriages’ downfall.
The estranged couple have still not agreed on parental right as, whilst Jack wants to raise his daughter, Scarlet Theresa, 7 and son, Henry Lee, 5, Karen is persistent that her ex-husband isn’t fit to do so due to his ‘violent temper’. But i’m sure, if Jack continues to fight for custody, a seven nation army couldn’t hold him back…
