Jack White's ex-wife Karen Elson has reportedly received a restraining order against the former White Stripe. 

According to Nashville's "City Paper," Elson is accusing White of harassment and making threatening emails and phone calls.  The restraining order explains that she "fears for her and the children's safety." 

Elson and White - who announced their separation in 2011 - have two children together, and are reportedly in the midst of a custody dispute. 

Elson's attorney told "The City Paper" that both parties are trying to settle the dispute privately.  However, they're scheduled to appear in court for a custody hearing on August 29th.
