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."

Not sure who these people are (except weirdos) or why we should care if she is here or not...just an over-inflated sense of self.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I hate them both but Tariq really got punched in the ****. She can have Neal. I'd feel bad if she laid her money grubbing fingers on Steve Perry.

Best of luck to the love birds!

Well, wonders never cease! Quite the odd couple, this most recent story is a real dilly. I always thought Schon was cute, doesn't surprise me that she would run off from that creepy husband of hers. Have fun Michaela.

She's been brainwashed into liking crap music. The husband did the right thing in trying to save her but its too late. She's lost in Journey hell.

I bet the husband believes his wife when she tells him its only a pr stunt and nothings going but, all the while she's screwing the whole band backstage between sets.

Hilarious that the skank would be sneaky--they do have a pattern of doing this, ya know! DUH. He deserves it. Now I hope Schon does it to HER.
