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.

Celebrity Rehab deserves whatever headache the Salahi's create for them! Producers for the show were sooo fixed on getting "Celebrities" that they sold their souls to get people like the Salahi's on the show. Without looking at their history with other programs/events. Dr. Drew is quickly loosing all crediability & soon he should be investigated by the medical board. Dr. Drew seems more focused on being a celebrity himself them on actually treating. RIP Mike Star! it should have been the Salahi's!

It was allowed to attract attention. It worked & now its over. Total waste of time at the publics expense.

These two seem quite insane.

If she had no addiction, she was making a mockery of those who do.

Why would producers book her? This whole show is a joke and Drew Pinsky is another fame whore who should do his doctoring behind closed doors -- as it's intended to be done.

all about the money    

Yea her health condition is the lack of addiction. They were hoping she could "sneak/fake" her way onto Celebrity Rehab before being called out for lack of addiction and grabbing another 15 min of fame for sneaking onto a TV show. Besides like someone else said...why was she even considered for Celebrity Rehab. As far as I know she is not a Celebrity. Unless the show is so desperate for scandal or ratings that they went from A -list and B-list to Z-list for their Celebs.

These two are just a middle aged version of Heidi and Spencer. And, like Speidi, if you ignore them they will go away.
