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.

Why air your dirty laundry unless you want everyone to know? These people are shameless attention whores. BTW, Steve Perry has aged alot better than Neal Schon. He probably has better taste in women too.

TMZ is really milking this nonsense. You know that most of these articles are just flat out lies just like Heidi and Spencer and yet they keep posting it.

not that TMZ has ever been too worried about being factual.....

You can't turn a whore into a housewife. When will these idiot men ever learn? They'd be a lot richer if they'd be smarter with the women they choose.

Why can't some people keep their feelings to themselves + not air every little thing in public? Be sad alone in your own room like the rest of us when life gives us lemons?

This is publicity. The whole things sounds like an episode of "Cali***********" guest starring Rick Springfield.

This is what happens when a guy has been brainwashed to sacrifice his life for some ugly skinny blonde chick.

BLONDE BRAINWASHING - America has brainwashed its men to think that ugly skinny blonde chicks are the HOLY GRAIL of women.

There are so many more beautiful brunette women in the world...but alas..Tareq won't learn this lesson until he commits suicide over a chick who CLEARLY has been using him and doesn't really care about him at all.

Idiot.

Nice try, Spiedi 2.0. Having TMZ reporting that you're BFF's with Journey gives you no celeb cred. If anything, it gives you a -4.

This whole thing stinks. You can't believe anything these two do. What happened to "I want a baby", and I have this critical disease. Publicity is what they want, I think they are addicted to it.
