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.

Neal you said your new lead singer inspired you to be a better man. Obviously you are the same douche bag I remember from the 70s.

Oh, gimme a break. Can you say "publicity stunt?!" These fame whores 15 minutes are up and they are looking for anyway to get back into the headlines. Go crawl back into your holes.

HMMMM    

Crying hysterically? Grow a pair. You had to know she was screwing the guy, you encouraged it. You know what to expect when one has a trophy wife. Get over it, neither of you are worth the time and space on TMZ

Tareq my boy, I tried to warn you yesterday. It's true, Michaele has moved on to greener pastures. Protect yourself NOW while you still can. Call Sorrell Trope, he knows how to handle fame-wh0ring, gold-digging blondes like your estranged wife. Save what financial assets you have left. Bet you wish you would have signed a pre-nup afterall? Get busy son, she's not coming back and you need to get your **** in order PRONTO.

Poor, Tareq! Hysterically crying over Michaela running off w/ the band. It's probably just a mid-life crisis, that, and she has been bored to death w/ you for years. She'll never come back to her old life.
