Jack White Proposed to and Married Olivia Jean During Detroit Concert

    Jack White proposed to and then married his girlfriend, Black Belles singer-songwriter Olivia Jean, during his performance at the Masonic Temple Theatre in Detroit on April 8. When Jean joined White for a rendition of the White Stripes’ ‘Hotel Yorba’, White paused at the “let’s get married” lyric and said: “I’ve got a question for you. Will you marry me?” White and Jean got married during the show’s encore, with Third Man co-founder Ben Swank officiating the ceremony.

    According to the Detroit Free Press, White and Jean’s respective bass players were best man and maid of honor, and their families were in attendance, including White’s mother, Teresa Gillis. This marks White’s third wedding; his first wife was his former bandmate in White Stripes, Meg White. He divorced his second wife, model and singer Karen Elson, in 2013.

    Jack White released his most recent album, Fear of the Dawn, on Friday.
