An invitation posted online said the get-together will mark White and Elsonâ€™s â€œ6th anniversary and their upcoming divorce with a positive swing bang hum dinger.â€ â€œThe party will include dancing, photos, memories and drinks with alcohol in them. This is only for close personal friends and family so please no plus ones or dead beats,â€ the invitation said. White and Elson, who were married in June 2005, have two children together, Scarlett and Henry Lee.
They did not say whey they were splitting up. A photo accompanying the invitation shows White in a Western-style hat and a jacket with skeletal images of bones on it, and Elson hugging him from behind.
White, who is known for singing in a plaintive voice that straddles the line between punk rock and the blues, first gained fame with drummer Meg White in Grammy-Awards winning rock duo The White Stripes.
The White Stripes broke up earlier this year, but Jack White continues to play in band The Raconteurs. The British-born Elson is a model-turned singer who last year released her debut album â€œThe Ghost Who Walks.â€
