The White Stripes front man Jack White has decided to commemorate the end of his marriage to British model Karen Elson by throwing a lavish party. Although this may appear to be a vengeful stab at his soon to be ex-wife, or an act to prove he can live life to the max independently, it turns out that the couple will be ending their marriage as it started; together… at their Divorce Party.
In a joint statement the couple said, “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.”
Despite the party falling within days of their six-year anniversary, the couple refused to make a solemn affair out of things, asking guests instead to “celebrate their sixth anniversary and their upcoming divorce with a positive swing bang hum dinger.”
It has to acknowledged the couple’s positive attitude offers a refreshing change from the highly publicized celebrity break-ups that are becoming increasingly common, however I’m not sure I would cherish an invite to what I can only imagine to be the most awkward party conceivable.
I Now Pronounce You Man and… Ex-Wife.
