Karen Elson and Jack WhiteJack White has officially divorced his wife Karen Elson.

The former White Stripes rocker married the model in 2005, but they split in 2011 after Karen filed for divorce, and court records have revealed a judge finalized proceedings on November 26 after months of bitter spats, according to Billboard.

The pair reached an agreement naming Karen as the primary residential parent for the couple's two children, Scarlett Teresa, seven, and Henry Lee, six, while Jack has been granted around 150 days per year to spend with them. The agreement also states that Jack, 38, has been granted permission to keep the rights to his musical businesses - which include his bands The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Dead Weather and his record label, Third Man Records.

His separation from 34-year-old Karen was amicable in the beginning and they even threw a "divorce party" to celebrate the end of their union - but the situation escalated into a series of shocking accusations.

Jack White and Karen ElsonJack White has hit back at his estranged wife after she was granted a restraining order against him.

The former White Stripes' rocker's spouse Karen Elson - who separated from Jack in 2011 and filed for divorce in 2012 - claims she fears her famous husband is dangerous and may cause her harm following disagreements over parenting rights, but Jack insists she is lying.

In documents filed in response to Karen's restraining order, and obtained by TMZ, Jack claims Karen recently told a friend, "I'm completely in love with Jack and I'd move back tomorrow if he asked me." While the 34-year-old model claims Jack, 38, is not fit to be a parent and has rebuffed his requests to help raise their two kids - Scarlett, seven, and five-year-old Henry - resulting in him becoming increasingly hostile towards her, he insists she often leaves the children with him.
