    Rock 'n' roll ain't always pretty. In a court filing Friday, former White Stripes frontman Jack White denied threatening his estranged wife, who was recently granted a temporary restraining order. Karen Elson showed the court emails from White that show he's unhappy with her plan for their children's education, and includes a tirade against singer Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, claiming he had "ripped off" White's music. In his filing, White denied the allegations.
