Restraining order for Jack White

The estranged wife of rocker Jack White has filed a restraining order against him after she said in their divorce filings he was threatening her and she fears for her safety and her children's.

British model and singer Karen Elson married Jack in 2005 in Nashville and they have two children. They separated in 2011 and she filed for divorce last year.

Karen filed for a temporary restraining order on July 17. It was approved by a judge pending a court hearing on August 29. The order was first reported by the Nashville City Paper.

She said in the filing that Jack has a violent temper, sends her emails laced with profanity and calls her derogatory names.

A publicist for the singer said there was no immediate comment.
