Divorce parties aren’t all that rare, though we suspect it’s a little less common when the couple in question co-hosts one. Yet that’s what Jack White and Karen Elson are doing: the couple Friday announced a shindig to celebrate their sixth anniversary “and upcoming divorce.”
“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,” White and Elson said in a statement e-mailed by their publicist.
The pair has two children, Scarlett and Henry Lee. Their break-up is no less eccentric than their wedding, which took place in a canoe in the Amazon River, with a shaman officiating.
The divorce party, a private affair in Nashville, is tonight. No word on whether White will be wearing that awesome suit.
