Beefs 2013: Jack White Lashes Out at Black Keys' Dan Auerbach in Karen Elson Court Battle
Published Aug 02, 2013Yesterday (August 1), we learned that garage rock mogul Jack White had been slapped with a restraining order from ex-wife Karen Elson as the pair battled over custody rights and divorce settlement terms. Now, more of the pair's dirty laundry has come to light, as TMZ has obtained some of White's emails to Elson via court documents.
Bizarrely, Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach has been drawn into the dispute, with White discussing their children attending school together in Nashville.
In an email dated July 16, 2013, White wrote (with the original spelling preserved): "My concern with Auerbach is because I don't want the kids involved in any of that crap ... That's a possible twelve fucking years i'mg going to have to be sitting in kids chairs next to that asshole with other people trying to lump us in together. He gets yet another freee reign to follow me around a copy me and push himself into my world."
Original reports surrounding the restraining order suggested that White had criticized Elson for associating with rival musicians. Now we know who he was talking about.
Those seeking more tabloid gossip can read more of White's emails over at TMZ.
The pair are due to attend a hearing about their custody dispute on August 29. Hopefully, after that, they will be able to go about resolving their issues outside of the public eye.
