Jack White married Olivia Jean onstage just minutes after getting down on his knees: Complete story here!
Jack White pulled a romantic stunt during his concert at the Masonic Temple in his hometown Detroit on Friday night when he called his girlfriend, singer Olivia Jean, 36, for a duet on White Stripes's Hotel Yorba. He then proposed to her and hitched in the next few minutes. The 12-Grammy winner began by introducing Olivia to his sold-out crowd as his girlfriend and then turned to Jean for a question.
"Will you marry me?" the 46 years old singer asked his girlfriend while presenting her with a ring. "Yes," replied Olivia, and the song perfectly rolled into the following line of the song, "let's get married." White scooped his fiance in his arms, carried her offstage, and returned quickly to announce, "It's been such a great day; mind if we get married right now?" Jean is a member of the rock band Black Belles, which is currently on hiatus and performs as a solo artist.
