NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Jack White denies making any threats against his estranged wife in a court filing in response to her request for a temporary restraining order.

British singer and model Karen Elson was granted the temporary restraining order pending a hearing. She showed the court an email from the former White Stripes frontman that expresses unhappiness with Elson's plans for their children's schooling and takes a swipe at rock 'n' roll rival Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.

In a court filing Friday, White denies his wife's claims and says his wife went back on a verbal agreement to settle the divorce without mediation.

White has asked the court to establish a temporary parenting plan and said he does not oppose the temporary restraining order except for communications about the children.
