apparently to preserve the sanctity of the band?

idk, their statement is a bit convoluted ...

Sad news. I liked this band. What a lot of folks don't know (maybe they do), is that Jack and Meg of White Stripes were actually married to each other at one time.

yes and that they pretended to be siblings for some reason

since they won't talk about it, it's kinda hard to figure out why

another random factoid:

Jack took Megan's last name when they married
his real name is actually John Anthony Gillis

London's Daily Mail takes a guess:
