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.

I agree #2- those idiots broke the law and were let off easy when they crashed (trespassed) the party at the White House!! She is neither a celebrity nor an addict, so why was this simpleton on the show in the first place??
These are two of the most annoying, delusional opportunists on TV and these days, that says a lot!!!!

Isn't her "health condition" not being an addict? Mmm, yeah. Well, I don't think the American with Disabilities Act protects those who have NO DISABILITIES!!!!

These two are something else. He's the biggest idiot I have ever seen or heard in my life. She's on a show titled Celebrity Rehab and then he goes on TMZ and states that she has no addiction. Hell yes, she should be fired from the show as it is for people who have addictions not MS. She should go see a doctor who specializes in her condition thant try to gain fame from Dr. Drew. I hope a judge laughs in their faces. These two are what you would call Fame Whores. Disgusting!!!!
