Tareq Salahi to Neal Schon

You Owe Me MILLIONS

For Banging My Wife

Tareq Salahi ain't taking his internationally humiliating divorce sitting down -- TMZ has learned, he's now demanding his estranged wife and her rock star BF cough up $17 MILLION ... for publicly humiliating him with their torrid affair.

Tareq's attorney just fired off a letter to lawyers for Michaele Salahi and "Journey" guitarist Neal Schon -- claiming the adulterous couple profited unfairly off Tareq's misery ... and sabotaged his career in the process.

The taunting, the $10,000 lingerie shopping sprees, the onstage make-out sessions, the penis pics ... that was all just salt on the wound.

According to Tareq's lawyer, the large-scale publicity surrounding Michaele's affair with Schon skyrocketed ticket sales for Journey's most recent tour -- all while torpedoing several pending TV deals Tareq had previously made with his wife ... before she ran off with the rock star.

Tareq claims Michaele and Neal have since put the wheels in motion for their own reality show -- leaving Tareq in the dust ... with $2 million of debt.

Tareq wants $17 million to compensate him for all his suffering. We reached out to reps for Neal and Michaele -- so far, no word back.

Is it any wonder this happens just after Journey (albeit surprisingly) was named one of the top-grossing concert acts.....? Whatever...They all deserve each other...:/ I will say it is a shame that one of the all time greatest guitarists and legends will now be known for this....he must really love her...now escuse me while I go gag a little bit...:/

Neal Schon needs to "******" a photo of Tareq Salahi and post the shot on TMZ.

This guy just needs to lick his wounds and move from this. Him opening his mouth is just making him look like a fool. If Neil & Michaele have done him wrong, karma will take care of them sooner or later.

There's no fool like an old fool. Mr. "No Lips" wants to be compensated because he lost his reality show gig. That's rich. The show as cancelled by Bravo. Maybe, he should complain to Andy Cohen and try for his own reality spin off called, "Cry Me a River - Lonely Divorced Lipless Man Seeks Single Gal Who Won't Leave Me".

I think he would be smart to move on and never mention the who*e and "rock star" (he isn't, both are pathetic). It is so easy to rise above those two. Move on dude. You can come out of this in a good way.

Just dawned on me, he is trying to use the courts to get paid for pimping his wife off? HMMMMMM, thought that sort of thing was illegal. You pay me for banging my wife? Does NOT look good.
