In an interview with Rolling Stone, Black Keys bandmates Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach addressed the former White Stripe, who had expressed his distaste — albeit privately — for the group, going so far as to request that his ex-wife Karen Elson take their kids out of the same class as Auerbach’s.
“I actually feel embarassed for him,” Carney said of White. “I don’t hold grudges, man. I really don’t. We’ve all said f—ed-up shit in private, and divorce is hard.”
He went on to rail against TMZ, who he believes should be “ashamed of themselves” for “dragging poor souls” into the private lives of people — something about which he believes White has similar feelings.
