Jack White is legally a single man once again.

The 38-year-old rocker's divorce from ex-wife Karen Elson has been finalized, according to Rolling Stone.

The couple was married for six years before splitting in 2011. A Nashville judge granted Elson primary residential custody of their two children (daughter Scarlett and son Henry), giving White about 150 days a year with his kids. White gets to retain the rights to all of his music businesses, including his record label Third Man Records.

White and Elson married in Brazil in June 2005.

Over the summer, Elson obtained a temporary restraining order against White, claiming the former White Stripes frontman had been harassing her about their divorce settlement. White was barred from having "any contact with wife whatsoever except as it relates to parenting time with the parties' minor children."

According to the docs that were filed, "Wife fears for her and the children's safety as a result of this harassment."

White soon responded claiming that Elson was actually in violation of their custody agreement. He also claimed that Elson had written in an email to him, "You're an amazing father, I'm so glad we had these kids together."

Before marrying Elson, White famously dated Renée Zellweger.
