Jack White Ties the Knot With 'Blue Orchid' Model

Published: 2005-06-03
Everyone loves good superstar gossip, so here's some to fill the weekly quota: White Stripes frontman Jack White wedded British supermodel Karen Elson this past Wednesday in Manaus, Brazil. Most White Stripes fans will best recognize Elson as the redheaded model featured in the "Blue Orchid" video clip.

The news of White and Elson's marriage comes quite officially from the White Stripes website (www.whitestripes.com). The message explains that "they were married by a traditional Shaman priest on a canoe at the exact point where the three rivers [the Rio Negro, the Solimones, and the Amazon] meet."

It goes on to say that the couple opted for a small wedding party, which included White Stripes manager Ian Montone as best man and drummer Meg White as maid of honour. After the Shaman canoe ceremony, White and Elson immediately carried on with a blessing by a Catholic priest. It is the first marriage for both.

The White Stripes' newest disc, Get Behind Me Satan, will hit stores on Tuesday, June 7th.

Though Meg and Jack have claimed to be siblings, court records have suggested they were married for four years before divorcing in 2000.
