The divorce between Jack White and estranged wife Karen Elson has been finalized. After a nasty divorce process, a judge signed off on it on Nov. 26.
The British model has primary custody of the two children they share together and court documents show White has about 150 days worth of visitation.
CBS News reports the White Stripes star and Elson tied the knot back in 2005 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Elson filed for divorce from the musician last year after they announced their split in 2011, and in August, she filed a restraining order against him. She stated in court documents that he was harassing her, noting, “Wife fears for her and the children’s safety as a result of this harassment.” She wouldn’t comment on the ordeal publicly, saying it was a “private matter.”
Back in 2011 they seemed to be handling their split well, saying in a statement to People at the time, "Karen Elson and Jack White announce today that they are getting divorced. 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."
They even threw a joint divorce party in Nashville.
