Tareq Salahi -- 'Rehab' ILLEGALLY Fired My Wife

3/9/2011 11:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Alleged White House crasher Tareq Salahi is hinting that he may SUE "Celebrity Rehab" ... claiming the show illegally fired his wife because of her "health condition."

It's unclear what "condition" Tareq is referring to -- but Michaele has said in the past that she suffers from multiple sclerosis.

Tareq and his lawyers have issued a statement saying, "[Michaele] was fired due to her health condition which is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act."

Team Salahi says they will announce more details about their gripe later today.

Earlier this week, Tareq told reporters that his wife's only addiction was "chocolate" -- leaving many wondering why she was even on the show in the first place.

Wow...Um you dont go to rehab for a physical disability! A disability is not an addiction. Im disgusted by these bottom feeders and ashamed of TMV or anyone else who covers their stories. All they want is for their 15minutes of fame to continue and sadly they are getting it.

Furthermore, she shows NO signs of MS.

Lastly that jacka*s threatening to sue based on the ADA is a disgrace to every individual that actually has a disability. You cant sue someone for your wife not being allowed to go on a show, to make money, while exploiting an addiction when their is no addiction...
Just go crawl back under your rock!

How dare they try to use the Americans with Disabilities Act to try to get money. My boyfriend has Cerebral Palsy and has to manage his disability daily.

TMZ and every other media outlet needs to STOP giving these people press attention. Ignore them and they will go away.

Hi Michelle.. Just wanted to let you know I;m on your side at least as far as the Multiple Sclerosis... I was diagnosed nearly 20yrs ago with Relapsing/Remitting MS - and progressed about 5-7 years later to somewhere between secondary progressive and primary progressive MS... It is a very insidious disease - one in which the general population often sees nothing wrong with the victim health wise from casual observation - yet a disease that can absolutely destroy your life and anyones ability to try to live a life that even remotely resembles anything normal - due to the fatigue, weakness, headaches, seizures, cognitive issues, and any of about another 50-100 various symptoms that seem to toss darts at victims of the disease to determine which ones each individual sufferer is destined to have to deal with...

Good luck in your battle with this disease - may God perch on your shoulder and help you navigate your way through all the challenges presented by this curse we all call MS...
