Things are not going so well. Jack White has received a restraining order from his ex-wife, Karen Elson, for harassing her and her lawyers.

From his ex-wife, Karen

We’re supposing these two will not be sending out invitations to this party. . .

British model, Karen Elson, has obtained a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband and White Stripes frontman, Jack White, for alleged harassment and violent temper.

The rocker is hence forbidden from "any contact with wife whatsoever except as it relates to parenting time with the parties' minor children." A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 29.

White is accused of harassing Elson about their pending divorce settlement and acting aggressively towards her legal council.

"This is a private matter. I thank you for respecting my family's privacy and will be making no further comment," Elson said in a statement, according to E! News.

The former couple met on the set of the White Stripes video “Blue Orchid.” They married in 2005 in Brazil and have two children together. White and Elson separated in 2011 and celebrated the occasion with a party, sending out invitations to champion “their 6th anniversary and their upcoming divorce”. Whatever works, right?

Well, we hope this gets resolved, so the children will not be affected. Maybe Elson and White can even be friends again. . . eventually.
