Jack White and Karen Elson’s amicable divorce turns ugly

Restrained: Jack White, whose ex-wife Karen Elson got a restraining order against the rock star, who she claims has harassed her amid a custody dispute. This comes two years after a split so seemingly amicable they threw a party together to commemorate it. Sounds like the trajectory of so many suburban divorces we know, except for the showbizzy details: Nashville City Paper reports that the model/singer alleges the White Stripes front man bullied her over dealings with two other musicians (sadly unnamed) whom he claims “ripped off” his music – in one case, pressuring her to yank their kids out of a class where one rival’s child was enrolled (Update: the guy from the Black Keys, it turns out); in another, berating her for attending the performer’s wedding. They’ll have another hearing at the end of August.
