British model and singer Karen Elson married White in 2005 in Nashville and they have two children. They separated in 2011 and Elson filed for divorce last year.
Elson filed for a temporary restraining order on 17 July. It was approved by a judge pending a court hearing on 29 August. The order was first reported by the Nashville City Paper.
Elson said in the filing that White has a violent temper, sends her emails laced with profanity and calls her derogatory names.
A publicist for White said there was no immediate comment.
