  • Jack White's ex-wife has filed a restraining order against him.

Musician Jack White is calling his estranged wife a liar after she filed a restraining order against him that alleges he has an "explosive and violent temper" and is "dangerous," according to TMZ.

Supermodel Karen Elson wed the White Stripes frontman in 2005 and they have two kids, but she alleges White has been harassing her via email ever since they split up last year. White filed his own legal docs in response to hers, accusing her of a smear campaign.

All of this is especially surprising considering that the two threw what appeared to be an amicable "divorce party" after they announced they were breaking up last year. They even sent out invitations that read, "We remain dear and trusted friends. ... We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared."
