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.

To put it nicely, Tareq is a mentally challenged, self-important douchebag.

Really?    

Wait, did she go to the media and say I'm leaving. No she left and he called police and the media. He put the whole thing in the press. So who started the public humiliation? He deserves nothing jsut like the rest of married spouses who are left by their spouse.

What a joke!!! The only reason people know what happened is BECAUSE YOU TOLD THE WORLD!!! If you want to blame someone for the breakup of your marriage....look in the mirror buddy! As for your so-called career...I ask what careeer do you have that does not involve filing for bankruptcy. You couldn't make it on the one reality show that actually hired you, you think studio honchos are foaming at the mouth to sign you? STUPID AND DELUSIONAL...a winning combination!

This idiot is really reaching by saying that Journeys ticket sales sky rocketed because Neal is dating his ex. They, Journey, certainly don't need her to sell tickets to one of their awesome shows. Tareq is such a loser & will do anything except work to make money. He makes my skin crawl. I don't think much of his ex either. She's a user like her ex. I would be real careful w/my $$$ if I was Neal w/her around. She's not the most trustworthy woman on the planet.
