Tareq Salahi

"Devastated" by Wife's Liaison

With Journey Guitarist

Tareq Salahi
is telling friends, he feels "betrayed" by Journey guitarist Neal Schon, a trusted friend who has hooked up -- again -- with his wife, Michaele.

Tareq is saying he considered Neal and his band members "best friends."  The band recently came to his winery in Virginia and played for free and even stayed with Tareq and Michaele.

And there's more.  Two weeks ago, Tareq and Michaele went to a Journey concert in Virginia and hung backstage with Neal and a woman named Ava, whom Tareq believes is Neal's wife.

Tareq has been crying hysterically, saying he feels as if his life is over because Michaele is all he lived for.

TMZ broke the story ... contrary to Tareq's belief that his wife had been kidnapped, Michaele was hooking up with Neal in Tennessee, bouncing from Journey concert to Journey concert.

Karma has finally struck for this fake couple who couldn't read the clock when it said 14:59. This is why men have become complete pauzzes, crying and ish over some twisted face broad. Well dude, you like doing fake things and now your fake actions have become true reality.

Bravo must love f**king peoples lives up. You would imagine the poor sap that hung himself last month would be a wake up for this idiotic network but nope, they want more home wrecking bull**** to boost their ad sales. Shame on your Bravo, your network is worst than MTV & Fox News put together.

Judging by these comments you have some crass men who don't understand women at all.

I live in Northern Virginia and like many residents of the area we have been burned by him not paying his bills for years.


He took a winery that this parents labored long and hard to build up and borrowed money off it and it is up for auction now.

He once was a very good polo player and that is about all he was, and when you run in that set, just like rockers, you want the trophy blonde on your shoulder.

She was a cute and ditzy young lady who sold cosmetics at Nordstrom and enjoyed going to a nice party, and he met her and pursued her. She actually called off the wedding the first time and then a year or so later after he kept after her, she married him. You would be surprised at some of the well known Washington big wigs at the wedding.

He had a certain charming way about him, but years of dodging bill collectors, getting fat and gray, and always in and out of court have taken their toil.

Quite frankly, she should sue him for fraud. He told her he owned this well known winery, had this estate outside Washington DC (my home is nicer then theirs) and was an upstanding member of the community. She did not get any of that.

Being with him turned her into a now hard looking blonde grifter. She is not completely innocent, she relies on her fading looks now to get what she wants.

But of the two of them, he is clearly the worst. I hope she divorces him and starts her life over. she has to be aware He is a scam artist, who has hurt the lives of so many people, including his Mother.

This is so pathetic it is absolutely laughable. Just goes to show that just because you may have fame and/or money it still does not change the fact you are still trash. Just sayin'!
