Karen Elson and Jack White to Divorce with a Party

Till party do us part. We would have tied the proverbial knot six times by now if that were the line. Now, apparently, it is. That is, if you’re Karen Elson and The White Stripes’ Jack White, who announced they’re splitsville by sending out an invite to a “swing bang hum dinger” of a jamboree to celebrate their sixth anniversary—and divorce.

In a statement, the couple said, “We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow. In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party. An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.”

We ask, is that not the most enlightened way to call it quits?
