Karen Elson Files Restraining Order Against Jack White
Jack White’s estranged wife Karen Elson filed a restraining order against him, which has been granted by a Nashville judge.
White allegedly inundated Elson with phone calls and emails that she claims were of a threatening nature. Her attorney further alleged that the rocker had made attempts to manipulate Elson into forgoing her legal counsel in regard to the custodial battle over their two children, reported The Tennessean.
"He has persisted in discouraging her from communicating with or taking advice from her counsel in effort to coerce her into acting against her and the parties' minor children's best interests, often by emails laced with profanity and calling wife derogatory names," the Nashville circuit court filing stated. "These communications are often threatening in nature and the wife fears for her and the children's safety as a result of this harassment."

The filing further states that White pressed Elson to contact their son’s school to have him moved out of a class of a musician who he “feels has ‘ripped off’ his music.” White also apparently was unhappy when Elson attended the wedding of another competing entertainer.
The restraining order, which was granted on July 19, requires White to only contact his wife through email. The estranged couple is scheduled for a hearing Aug. 29.
White and Elson first announced their split roughly two years ago. At the time, they threw a party for their friends and boasted about maintaining a friendship following the break up.
