Jack White proposes to, then marries Olivia Jean during gig in Detroit

During his performance in Detroit last night (April 8), Jack White proposed to – then just moments later, married – his girlfriend, fellow singer-songwriter and local Olivia Jean.

The historic moment came at the end of White’s set at the Masonic Temple Theatre, during a rendition of The White Stripes’ 2001 tune ‘Hotel Yorba’. 

ABC 7 WXYZ – joined White and his band to perform the song, before he popped the question to an onslaught of cheers. 

To begin White’s encore – consisting of The Raconteurs’ ‘Steady, As She Goes’ and the Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’ – he and Jean returned to the stage, this time flanked by White’s mother,

White’s shows reportedly have a strict no-phone policy, though one punter was lucky enough to film the proposal and subsequent marriage.

This marks White’s third marriage. He wedded White Stripes bandmate Meg White in 1996 (a year before that band formed), and the pair were divorced in 2000.

 He then married model and singer Karen Elson in 2005, before the pair split in 2011 and were divorced in 2013.
