Today Karen Elson welcomed her new son, Henry Lee White. When we saw that Yahoo announced the birth, we thought: Wow! It's great that Karen's getting so much love from the press. She's so cool. And then we remembered, oh yeah, she's married to a guy who fronts a little band... Called the White Stripes. Congratulations to Karen, Jack, and big sister Scarlett Teresa! --ANNA FIELDING GRIGGS
Karen Elson Granted Restraining Order Against Jack White
In 2011, Karen Elson and Jack White announced their divorce with a party--a "positive swing hum dinger"--to "celebrate the making and breaking of the sacred union of marriage." I thought it was the cutest, classiest, most grown-up thing a soon-to-be-divorced couple could do and was sure the two would be pals. But now, two years later, Elson and White's relationship seems to have soured: According to Nashville's City Paper, a judge has granted Elson a restraining order against White.
