A leaked email allegedly sent by Jack White to his ex-wife Karen Elson appears to show the former White Stripes frontman branding The Black Keys singer' Dan Auerbach a "copy" and an "asshole".

Elson divorced White in 2011 but the model/musician took out a restraining order against her ex-husband on July 22 amid allegations of "harassment" and "bullying" behaviour. As part of her petition, Elson reportedly submitted a series of emails to a Nashville judge, and notorious US gossip site TMZ claims to have obtained the emails.

One of the emails allegedly finds White complaining that Elson has enrolled their two children, seven-year-old Scarlett and six-year-old Henry, into the same school as Auerbach's daughter, five-year-old Sadie.

The email allegedly sent by White on July 16 reads: "My concern with Auerbach is because I don't want the kids involved in any of that crap ... That's a possible twelve fucking years I'm going to have to be sitting in kids chairs next to that asshole with other people trying to lump us in together. He gets yet another free reign to follow me around and copy me and push himself into my world."

Meanwhile, White and Elson have a hearing on August 29 over a separate dispute involving their two children. The restraining order taken out on July 22 reveals Elson's belief that her ex-husband is not fit to be a parent. According to the restraining order, it is also claimed White has a violent temper and has sent Elson intimidating emails and text messages.
