A judge has finalised the divorce between singer Jack White and British model and singer Karen Elson.

Court records in Nashville, Tennessee, show that the final divorce agreement was signed by a judge on November 26.

The agreement names Elson as the primary residential parent for the couple's two children and White will get about 150 days with them.

White also retained rights to all his musical businesses, including The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Dead Weather and his record label, Third Man Records.

The pair married in 2005 in Nashville but Elson filed for divorce last year.

Although the separation started off amicably, earlier this year Elson filed for a restraining order and accused White of threatening her, which he denied.
