Model Karen Elson Granted Restraining Order, White Sues

Brit model, Karen Elson, reportedly has been granted a restraining order against her estranged husband, White Stripes rocker, Jack White. Married in 2005 in Brazil, the couple (pictured below)have two children and separated in 2011. Elson, who walked in the Olympics Closing Ceremony with Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell,  and Stella Tennant, among others, filed for divorce last year and recently filed for a temporary restraining order against White citing harassment (namely, expletive-filled and offensive emails) and “fear for her safety and that of their children” over their pending divorce settlement. According to the order, which was granted by a Nashville, Tennessee judge, White is barred from "any contact with Karen Elson whatsoever except as it relates to parenting time with the parties' minor children." Elson's expletive-filled and offensive emails and that he contacted her legal team “in an inappropriate and aggressive manner.” And true-to-form, White isn't going down without a fight. He's suing her ...

According to the rocker, he is not "scary or violent" and his ex only wants to "malign him in the public record," and as a result, he has filed filed a motion to contest the charges against him. White alleges that while Elson's court documents claim that she is "in fear" of him, she leaves their kids in his care all the time, even as recently as last month, and according to White's countermotion, "he does not want to be portrayed as something he is not, violent toward his wife and children." We had a feeling this one wouldn't be an open and shut case.
