TMZ has learned ... far from being kidnapped ... Michaele Salahi has run off with Neal Schon, the lead guitarist for the band Journey.

TMZ broke the story ... Tareq called authorities several times last night and today, claiming his wife has been abducted, because she left without taking her belongings.

But now we've learned ... Michaele (pictured above with Schon and her husband in 2010) has been dating the rock icon, went to his show in Nashville last night and is currently with Schon in Memphis, where Journey is set to perform with Foreigner.

Scoop Marketing, the rep for Journey, confirmed with TMZ that "Nobody kidnapped her and they are in Memphis together."



We've also confirmed Michaele has dated Schon in the past -- seen above partying at the Salahis' winery last year -- and she's called it an "intimate and passionate relationship."

Guys have been trading us in for a newer model for centuries soooooo,right back atcha boys.. Men cannot stand it when we get a little but it's ok for them. Guess what boys we get to enjoy sex too now weather you like it or not. It takes two to tango . The hubby knew darn well she left him for another he filed a false police report just to cause a stir for his wife.

Poor guy... I guess he now knows what it feels like to have someone "crash" his party. She is hot but she has the loyalty of a "Black Widow Spider." I hope he can get a quickie divorce and move ahead. He is so ugly that he might have a little problem getting a hot babe again. He might settle for a "Good Ole Fashion" home style girl without all the fan fare.

Tareq is a useless tool! I can see why she left....not that she is much better. Neal I have three words for you: RUN AWAY NOW!

Neal Schon is a mega-star that can have any woman he wants. Oh wait, its not 1981 any more.

Ahh, trying for a shot at a reality show. The idea of having her float away in a balloon has already been taken, so this is the next worst idea: run away with, and bang, a rock star. Schon is one of my Guitar heros. How could he stoop to agreeing to THIS crap?

figured michele could not stay out of the spotlight being the fame whore she is. for long. and this is one way to keep in the spotlight by causing a scandal involving a well known rock and roll player. wonder how long before she annouces she is divorcing her husband and marrying her guitar romeo.

Should not be a surprise as she was in the front row immediately in front of Schoen when Journey played Bristow, VA a couple weekends ago. Couldn't help but notice the two flirting during the performance,
