Michaele Salahi:

Tareq Was a Violent Rageaholic

12/21/2011 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tareq Salahi and Michaele
Tareq Salahi is a violent control freak who employs psychotic scare tactics to terrorize Michaele Salahi ... at least that's what she says in new court papers.

Michaele wants the judge in her divorce case to grant a legal separation STAT, so she can be free of the spell Tareq has cast over her ... according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

Michaele explains in her papers that she fled to Journey guitarist Neal Schon because she just plain feared for her physical safety.

According to Michaele, the Summer of 2011 was the season of rage for Tareq -- culminating in physical violence against her.

The final straw came on September 11th ... Michaele claims she returned from an errand a few hours late, and Tareq turned out all the lights and waited for her in the basement ... telling her she needed a lesson in fear. Two days later, Michaele fled to Neal ... fearing for her safety.

As for Tareq -- he categorically denies the allegations ... telling TMZ, Michaele is a "chronic liar" whose accusations are "absurd." Tareq insists he loved her and did everything humanly possible to support her during their marriage.

This dude was crying because he thought she was abducted and didn't know where she was.He must have been a bad control freak because he couldn't even control where she was going. If she feared for her life why didn't she go to the police? Instead she went partying with a band and she was so scared she was smiling in all the pics they took. This chick needs to just shut up.

Of course she'll say that! No one's talked about her for weeks. She just wants people to notice her for something other than a groupie slut who ran away with a rock star. Pfff! As for that Tareq dude, I couldn't care less. All they want is for they're "fame" to last. Don't matter how they get it, as long as people would notice them from somewhere.

I think another reason why she's accusing him(Tareq), is so their separation would be final as soon as possible so she can marry Neil Schon before the dude wakes up and sees she's old and then moves on to a younger, waaaaay hotter groupie. It's soooo pathetic. lol

Tareq Salahi should bend over and thank his maker for the day this woman walked out on him.

Ha ha ha, what a pack of lies from Michaele. I almost feel sorry for Tareq to have been used & tossed aside by Michaele after she spent all his money.

This story sounds ridiculous but this kind of behavior does happen. My ex-husband had to know where I was going, when I'd be back, who was I looking at as we walked to our seats in restaurants, and even had the audacity to say, "if I ever find out your f...... around, I'll take the kids and you won't get a dime', so paranoid and possessive. It's a relief to be free of him. After all the stories on this site by Tarez, I wouldn't put it past him to terrorize her. As for running off with Schon, most likely he was a soft place to fall.

As an after thought, a wonderful therapist once said, 'marry a beautiful wife, be miserable the rest of your life', some guys are all consumed with losing their prized possession.

Oh bullcrap. She's a gold-digger who spent him into the poorhouse then moved on to the next rich idiot. I doubt anyone buys her newly-proclaimed victim status to justify her crap.

SHE'S A LIAR LIAR..She could have gone to the police, if her life was in fear than running away with her lover. Karma is a b!tch...it will get back to her and Neal.
