Musician Jack White and model/singer wife Karen Elson have officially announced the ending of their six-year marriage -- with an invite to a divorce party. Albeit not the most typical of celebrations, at least they know how to go out with a bang.
In a news release, the couple stated:
"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."
So what exactly goes on at a divorce party? Will there be a back-to-bachelorhood party the night before? Are guests giving presents or asking for
theirs back? Is there going to be an uncommitment ceremony with the
couple returning rings? Do friends make speeches consisting of "I told you so"-type themes? Needless to say, I bet the bridesmaid who caught that bouquet is not feeling too great about her future.
Check out the invite after the jump.
The duo is not the first to celebrate the ending of a marriage. Back in 2006, former Miss USA Shanna Moakler (wife of Blink-182's Travis Barker) threw a divorce party in Las Vegas, complete with a three-tiered cake that featured a knife-holding bride and bloody groom.
