Tareq Salahi

"Devastated" by Wife's Liaison

With Journey Guitarist

9/15/2011 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Oh my goodness. I am laughing so hard I am going to wet my panties! I can't wait to see Michelle with rock groupie hair rocking her studded leathers! Oh baby, this sure ain't the end of this one. Can't want to watch this play out. Comic relief.

This band sucks anyway. Schon has made terrible business decisions, and now this. No surprise! Once Steve Perry and Steve Augeri were out of the band, no one else even listens to their crap anyway! Let the two happy ugly people go frolic together. And Tareq, let her go. Once a cheater, ALWAYS a cheater. Peace out....

Isn't she pregnant? Guess a Maury "who's the daddy" show is in her future!

Neal was married to Amber until 2008, when they divorced. He has not been married since. In regards to Tareq - anyone of "celebrated importance" is his best friend. The Journey band HATED Tareq and loved Michaele - always have, as her former girlfriends and her knew the band well.

There's a problem here    

He's over the hill, but she's so old he probably has to WD40 her nether regions if he even hopes to get into that dry as a bone gaping, flabby old cavern. Good luck with that.

He is so full of ****. Really, *******? This guy and his bandmates are your "best friends" and you don't even know who his wife is? Shut up and go jump off a cliff.

I think he will turn the corner soon and realize that her departure is a good thing. Move on, Tareq, while the opportunity presents itself.

They're 'best friends', huh? Funny, I don't have to say I 'believe' someone is married to my friends; I actually know whether they're married and to whom.

I'm still not convinced this isn't just for attention.

Here's my Nostradamus impression.....
He'll attempt (fake) suidice - probably pills, but nothing close to lethal. She'll come back and reconcile to set the stage for another attempt at a "reality" show. I don't believe that ancient rock star wants to wake up with her for very long. Also, her fake MS illness will flair up again to add to the story.

Some people will do anything for publicity!
Shame on Neil Schon for getting into this crap!
