Jack White divorce party

Jack White and wife Karen Elson are celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary -- and their divorce!

Jack White divorce party

Is it any surprise that Jack White's divorce will be untraditional? The White Stripes rocker and wife Karen Elson have announced they will be parting ways after six years of matrimony.

To kick off the divorce, Jack White and Karen Elson will be throwing a party. The pair, who celebrated their sixth anniversary on June 1, are parents to five-year-old daughter Scarlett and three-year-old son Henry.

Friends and family have received an e-vite to the event that states:

"We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children. 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."

"In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party. An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family."

While the Jack White divorce party is unusual for sure, is it really that crazy of an idea? Sounds like a great way for two people, who agree to divorce yet remain friends and co-parent, to kick off the next chapter in their lives!

Would you ever hold an event like the Jack White divorce party?
