All About Jack White’s girlfriend
Olivia Jean, born on February 23, 1990, grew up influenced by the Detroit garage rock movement and began composing and recording songs. She obtained her first guitar at the age of seven and quickly started recording songs on other instruments. Jean was found by Jack White during a Dead Weather event in Detroit, Michigan. In 2009, she was invited to record at Third Man Records in Nashville, Tennessee.
She met Shelby Lynne and Ruby Rogers via White. This time they recorded some of Jean’s own tracks. They decided to form a band and call themselves The Black Belles. Jack eventually signed them to Third Man Records. Their self-titled album was out in October 2011. They had some touring success and went on hiatus in 2012. Olivia’s solo career began after The Black Belles’ breakthrough. Third Man Records released Bathtub Love Killings in 2014. The same label published her sophomore album, Night Owl, in August 2019. She’s worked with performers including Jack White, Karen Elson, and Wanda Jackson.
Jack White just proposed to his girlfriend, Olivia Jean, on stage at the Masonic Temple during the opening night of his Supply Chain Issues tour. He did it during Hotel Yorba, she said yes, and he rolled right into the “let’s get married!” line. Crowd went crazy.
