“We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee,” the ex-couple, who wed in 2005, said in a statement. “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.”

The former White Stripes frontman and Elson are throwing a bash in Nashville on Friday to “celebrate their 6th anniversary and their upcoming divorce,” according to the invitation. But only people who actually know the couple are invited, meaning no “plus ones or dead beats.” (That probably means you.)
