When Jack White and Karen Elson threw a divorce party a couple of years back, everyone thought it was going to be a healthy split with no hard feelings. Until yesterday, when word spread about Elson slamming White with a restraining order.

The order comes from a alleged history of harassing texts and emails White had been sending to Elson. According to the order Elson claims that "White is unfit to be a parent," which is why she's trying to get full custody of the kids. The communication between the two has made her fear for her children's safety.

According to the order, White had a big problem with Elson allowing their children to be friends with a certain musicians kids (cough cough: Dan Auerbach cough cough). It's been known that White has had issues with Auerbach, but he has never been so up front about it until now. Amongst the emails was one where White blatantly bashes Auerbach.

An excerpt from email from White to Elson:

My concern with auerbach is because i dont want the kids involved in any of that crap. you aren’t thining ahead. that’s a possible twelve fucking years i’mg going to be sitting in kids chairs next to that asshole with other people trying to lump us in together. he gets another freee reign to follow me around and copy me and push himself into my world.

White and Elson are set to appear in court on August 29th for their custody hearing.
