Jack and Meg White helped spread the rumor that they were siblings and not a married couple. The truth is that they had divorced in March 2000 just as they became a renowned band. In a 2005 interview with Rolling Stone, Jack White said they lied about their relationship to keep the public's focus on their music. "When you see a band that is two pieces, husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend, you think, 'Oh, I see...,'” he said. “When they're brother and sister, you go, 'Oh, that's interesting.' You care more about the music, not the relationship-whether they're trying to save their relationship by being in a band."
