It's official: Jack White is now legally divorced from model Karen Elson.
The former White Stripes rock musician married Elson in 2005 in the middle of the Amazon river. The couple ended their relationship in 2011 when Karen filed for divorce.
Records released by the court show that the agreement was signed by the judge on Nov. 26. Elson will receive primary custody of the couple's two children and White will get about 150 days with the kids, AP reported.
Elson will also receive $3,200 in child support from the rock star.
Daily Mail reported that the divorce started out very normal. The couple even had a divorce party to celebrate the end of their marriage but the civil split ended a few months later into the divorce process.
Elson filed a restraining order this past summer. The order claimed that White had made attempts to contact Elson's lawyers in a very angry and outrageous manner. The restraining order also detailed violent rages that White would go into and that Elson feared for her own safety and the safety of her children.
