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.

LMAO, couldn't happen to a nicer skumbag. Hopefully he will jump off a cliff and when Neal wakes up with that skank next to him sees her with no make-up(RUF RUF) he will come to his senses and shoot her. There is a silver lining

Ah, the truth is starting to rear it's beautiful head. The Oregon phone number was from a winery. Interesting. It's going to be a hoax within a hoax.

He's a dumb azz if all he did was live for her! No one should be doing that crap! LOL And because she's done this before... he's an even bigger idiot. NO sympathy from me for either of them.

Ava is Neal's daughter from a previous marriage. His latest marriage ended in 2008 (married Minnesota native Amber Kazan in 2001).

He says they're his best friends, yet he "believes" this woman, Ava, is Schon's wife? Wouldn't he know who his best friend's wife is? Publicity stunt - no more, no less. The middle-aged Heidi and Spencer. Barf!

I think it's all funny. Tarek Salahi is a media hungry fool who doesn't pay his bills.

Hold the phone....didn't Neil Schon get married to Eva Fabian in Paris this past July? Certainly if Tareq, Neil and the other Journey member's are BFF's, numb nuts would KNOW who this "Ava woman" is. You know Tareq, the famous,former playmate who has been dating your best buddy for the last few years? Smells like a publicity stunt to me too, like the Simmons/Tweed "yah right" breakup...bet these 2 are also pitching a new reality TV show. Why do I read this crap?? Must be cuz' I love TMZ!!!

Scammers, groupies, and over the hill rock stars. Sounds like a perfect fit. Now please go live your amoral lives out of the public eye. Please backstab each other in private.
