Whites divorce

24 Mar, 2000

After ceasing living together, Jack and Meg White divorce in the same year that the White Stripes’ second album is released. Jack describes tensions in the band:

She viewed me that way of ‘Oh, big deal, you did it, so what?’ Almost every single moment of the White Stripes was like that. We’d be working in the studio and something amazing would happen: I’m like, ‘Damn, we just broke into a new world right there!’ And Meg’s sitting in silence.”
