Jack White — lead singer of the White Stripes — has been hit with a restraining order … after his estranged wife told a judge she fears the rocker is DANGEROUS and could cause her harm.
Karen Elson obtained the restraining order in Tennessee in July — claiming White has an explosive and violent temper … and has berated her in emails loaded with profanity.
In the legal docs, Elson — a model and singer — says she fears for her own safety … AND the safety of the couple”s two young children.
Jack and Karen were married in 2005 in a canoe in the middle of the Amazon river in Brazil … only to separate in 2011. Karen finally filed for divorce in 2012.
So far, no comment from White”s camp.
