Jack White's divorce from Karen Elson has been finalised.

The couple, who married in 2005, had their final divorce agreement signed by a Nashville judge on November 26, reports Billboard. Elson is named as the primary residential parent for the couple's two children as part of the agreement, with White granted 150 days per year with them.

Additionally, White has retained all of the rights to all his musical businesses, including The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Dead Weather and his record label, Third Man Records.

Earlier this year Karen Elson took out a restraining order against White and accused him of "harassment" and "bullying behaviour". It was reported that the pair are at odds over the custody of their two children, with Elson alleging that her ex-husband was not fit to be a parent. White subsequently launched a countermotion against the restraining order.

In August it was reported that White had allegedly called The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach a "copy" and an "asshole" in an email he sent to Elson. The email, which was submitted by Elson as part of her petition for a restraining order, allegedly finds White complaining that she has enrolled their two children, seven-year-old Scarlett and six-year-old Henry, into the same school as Auerbach's daughter.
