NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The estranged wife of rocker Jack White has filed a restraining order against him after she said in their divorce filings he was threatening her and she fears for her safety and her children's.

British model and singer Karen Elson married White in 2005 in Nashville and they have two children. They separated in 2011 and Elson filed for divorce last year.

Elson filed for a temporary restraining order July 17. It was approved by a judge pending a court hearing on Aug. 29. The order was first reported by the Nashville City Paper.

Elson said in the filing that White has a violent temper, sends her emails laced with profanity and calls her derogatory names.

A publicist for White said there was no comment.
