Jack White and his second wife Karen Elson were married by a shaman on June 1, 2005, aboard a canoe on the Amazon River in Brazil.
On June 10, 2011 after six years of marriage and two children they oddly announced they have decided to separate and sent out invitations to friends and family to join them to celebrate their anniversary and impending divorce.
Here is the statement that White and Elson released…
“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.”

It was obviously too good to be true as the divorce became very nasty and was eventually finalized two years later on Thanksgiving Day November 26, 2013. The legal wrangling involved a restraining order against White with a request that he get his head examined. Jack White even oddly accused accused The Black Keys Dan Auerbach of stealing his music, sound, tone, etc. in his divorce papers. Elson was named the primary residential parent for their two children and White got to keep hold of all of his music businesses, which include his various bands as well as his record label, Third Man Records.
