Jack White Celebrates Anniversary With Divorce
0
Jack White will mark his wedding anniversary with british model Karen Elson in typically weird fashion - with a divorce. It won't be a time for tears, because the pair will be making celebration of the event, according to a joint statement. "We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee," the announcement said. "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." They first met on the set of a White Stripes music video for "Blue Orchid", and in 2005 married in Brazil. They later had two children, aged five and three. Invitations to their "divorce party" asked guests to "celebrate their 6th anniversary and their upcoming divorce with a positive swing bang hum dinger" at a party in Nashville, and requests that the friends and family invited do not bring "plus ones or dead beats". Jack fronted his popular group The White Stripes until their split earlier this year. He is ranked at number 17 on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time.

    Ugh it isn't is sister , how hard is it to believe that? Jack white was born as Jack Anthony Gillis and Meg was born as Megan Martha White. And none of Jack parents their name were 'white'.

    John Anthony "Jack" Gillis met Meg White, married on September 21st, 1996,and took her last name. Jack White. You are a certified retard.

    You take life too seriously. Contrary to my whimsical sarcastic comment, I am aware that they were not related. Jeez.

    He doesn't say it just to screw with people. He did because he wanted people to focus on the music, not the relationship.

They figured that bands compromised of a married couple just aren't nearly as interesting as a band compromised of a brother and sister (because, well, couples doing stuff together in that fashion isn't all that rare, but siblings doing it isn't something we see every day). Yeah, like Van Halen, or Ac/Dc, or Oasis, or Kings of Leon, or the Allman brothers, or the Jonas brothers, or the Avett brothers, or Credence Clearwater Revival, or Lynyrd Skynyrd... If those bands had siblings in them, they would have been way more successful.
    But all those bands DID - OHHHH, I see what you did there! Also, you missed the Beach Boys.
