Jack White, Wife Karen Elson Throwing 'Divorce Party' to Mark Split

SEBASTIEN BOZON/AFP/Getty Images(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- Jack White and his wife Karen Elson are breaking up -- but they're not too broken up about it.  In fact, they're even throwing a party to mark the occasion.

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."

The couple then went on to say, "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."

They also issued a copy of the invitation to the party, which is taking place Friday night in Nashville.  The invitation states, "Karen Elson and Jack White kindly request [your] presence at a party to celebrate their 6th anniversary and their upcoming divorce, with a positive swing bang humdinger."

The invitation goes on to say that the bash will include "dancing, photos, memories and drinks with alcohol in them," and states that it is only for their family and close friends, "so no dead beats."  It ends by saying, "Please help us celebrate together this anniversary of the making and breaking of this sacred union of marriage with our best friends and animals."

White and Elson -- a musician and model -- wed on June 1, 2005 in Brazil.
