Jack White, Model Karen Elson Marry

Clearly, Jack White (search) isn't brokenhearted over the recent marriage of ex-girlfriend Renee Zellweger (search). The White Stripes singer wed model Karen Elson on Wednesday in a canoe in the Amazon River in Brazil.

Chloe Walsh, a publicist for White, 29, confirmed Thursday that the singer-guitarist married Elson, a 25-year-old who has modeled for Prada and Banana Republic. She is also featured in the band's latest video, "Blue Orchid," a surreal clip which features snakes slithering over Elson.

The marriage and details regarding it were first reported by Us Weekly, though the story was not in its latest issue.

The service was conducted by a Shaman priest on a canoe in the Amazon basin. It was followed by a blessing by a Catholic priest at a cathedral in Manaus, Brazil.

Meg White, the drummer for the White Stripes (search), a blues-rock duo from Detroit, served as maid of honor. Though she and White have claimed to be siblings, court records have suggested they were married for four years before divorcing in 2000.

Whether it's White's first marriage or not, it is the first for Elson.

White and Zellweger met during the filming of the 2003 movie "Cold Mountain (search)" and dated until late 2004. The actress married country music star Kenny Chesney May 9 in a Caribbean island ceremony.

White won a Grammy earlier this year for best country collaboration with country legend Loretta Lynn. He produced her 2004 album, "Van Lear Rose," which also won for best country album.

White's marriage comes as the White Stripes release their fifth full-length, "Get Behind Me Satan," on Tuesday.
