'Black Keys' Singer

My Suicidal Ex

Is Endangering Our Kid

EXCLUSIVE

0805_Dan-Auerbach_getty
Black Keys singer Dan Auerbach is in a feud with Jack White ... but it pales in comparison to the all-out divorce war Dan has been having with his estranged wife.

The allegations in Dan's divorce from Stephanie Gonis are shocking.  For starters, he claims she tried to commit suicide twice in one day -- the first time by allegedly gashing open her leg and ankles in front of their daughter ... the second time by almost burning their house down.

Stephanie fired back in her own legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming the leg-gashing "suicide" attempt was the result of years of abuse during the marriage.  As for the fire ... she says it was just an accident.

According to docs, Stephanie voluntarily committed herself and spent time in a treatment center.

A judge has given Dan temporary custody of their daughter.  Stephanie gets supervised visitation for now.  The judge won't give her additional parental rights until he's convinced she's mentally stable and is not putting their daughter at risk.

The divorce is ongoing.

Jeez, you'd think he and Jack would be bonding. Apparently they have a lot in common.

If I was Dan, I would consider moving, getting a good security system, a restraining order and maybe a handgun, a taser, or pepper spray, etc.

Sounds like his ex-wife has a lot in common with that crazy biatch from Arizona, Jodi Arias, who shot and stabbed that one guy to death.

Some women just can't handle rejection and breakups. Usually it is the guy that acts crazy like this after a breakup. Nowadays it seems that the women do it just as much. Maybe more.

And that sht Jack White wrote about Dan copying him? LOLLLLL I like Jack too, but that is ridiculous. He needs to get over it.

Good for the judge. She needs supervised visitation if any visitation is granted in the future. He needs a great security system and restraining orders in place where she cannot come around him or their daughter unless it is in a supervised visitation setting.
