Jack White And Karen Elson Finalise Divorce

The divorce of US rock star Jack White and British model and singer Karen Elson has been finalised.

Court records show the agreement was signed by a judge on November 26.

It names Elson as the primary residential parent for the couple's two children and White will get around 150 days a year with them.

White - one half of The White Stripes until the group broke up in 2011 - also retained rights to all his musical businesses, including The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Dead Weather and his record label, Third Man Records.

Elson married White in 2005 in Nashville, but she filed for divorce last year.

Although the separation started off amicably, earlier this year Elson filed for a restraining order, accusing White of threatening her and saying she feared for her safety.

White denied the accusations.
