Karen Elson suggests that she and her ex-husband Jack White tried to do the “conscious-uncoupling thing” before divorcing in 2013.
The English musician and product married US artist White in 2005. They have two teenage children with each other.
In an job interview with Harper’s Bazaar Uk, Elson, 42, explained the White Stripes and Raconteurs frontman is now a “dear friend”.
“Every divorce has its demanding moments. We initial attempted to do the Goopy acutely aware-uncoupling issue,” she claimed.
“That all fell on its head, but now I can wholeheartedly say that my ex-husband is a dear buddy and another person I adore.
“I seem at him and feel ‘You’re my family’. I know him as ‘Dad’ – I roll my eyes at his father jokes and I provide him advice when our teens are offering him grief.”
“Our relationship is purely that of moms and dads,” she extra.
The time period “conscious uncoupling” acquired mainstream prominence following it was employed by Hollywood actor and Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, to announce their divorce in 2014.
Elson is a founding member and performer with the New York-based mostly cabaret troupe The Citizens Band and has also collaborated with artists which includes Cat Energy.
White has introduced two new albums for release in 2022, Panic of the Dawn and Moving into Heaven Alive.
