Listen to Jack White on iHeartRadio

Jack White is sharing his side of the story in response to the restraining order his estranged wife Karen Elson got against him last week. 

"Rolling Stone" says the rocker filed his own motion Friday in a Nashville court, clarifying that he has never been "violent toward his wife and children."  The filing even cites an email written back in May in which Elson - who split with White in 2011 - calls him an "amazing father." 

White's attorney adds that Elson's request that her ex undergo a psychiatric exam is "inflammatory, disingenuous, fraudulent and retaliatory." 

White's countermotion goes on to say that Elson left their kids in his care the day after she signed the restraining order affidavit, and just last month told a mutual friend that she is still in love with White. 

White and Elson are due back in court August 29th for a hearing in their ongoing custody battle.
