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.

These two are equally repulsive. Why do we have to be made aware of the trash drama that repeats almost daily in the lives of such people? I suppose it may make some of us feel better about ourselves. I dunno. Unfortunately it also has the effect of chipping away at our spirit and faith in human nature, one classless fame-whore incident at a time.

I watched the real housewives reunion where they came out and she is a complete liar. She said in 1 episode she was a Redskins cheerleader then they asked her in the reunion she said she wasnt. They aired the episode where she claimed she was and she was busted and did not know what to say. She is a chronic liar and he should be thankful she left. Thats Neils problem now for stealing a crazy biotch like her from a married man. Regardless, she was married and Neil knew it, so he is just as stupid as her.

She looked like she was scared shi*less in that video the day she left, she was in bed with the doberman telling Tareq she loved him, if he were violent that doberman would of sicked balls already, and if she was truly devastated she would of took her dog with her.

BB not bb    

I have never heard of these people before, but seeing the Mulsim sounding names, it figures he would try to terrorize his wife in the basement to teach her a lesson. It is depressing all of the violence and abuse against women in the news any more. Society is really falling apart. If it can't even show respect towards women, it won't last much longer.

what also sucks is I LOVE JOURNEY, but now, I was watching this thing on TV and Journey was on, they showed Neil and my stomach turned and I had to turn it off, what they did to Tareq was so low down that even watching journey or seeing these two make me want to vomit now.

I always felt that she didn't leave him, she escaped. She left with just her purse - no clothes or anything. That's an escape!

I am inclined to believe her. I mean, she told him where she would and then he calls to verify. Then, when she's not, he starts a massive media-police search for her. Why try to verify if he's not attempting to know her every move or suspect cheating, which he says he didn't? Control freak!

they are both useless human beings who deserve the worst. If they want to repair their souls, it would require an act of God. They should drop out of the spot light and quietly dedicate all time to a children charity.

I totally believe her. Nobody runs away like that unless the spouse pushes them that far. I long believed that the guy used threats, abuse and other scare tactics against her to get her to partner with him in his quest for fame. She has such a need to be loved and appreciated and is the kind of woman who will do anything to keep her man (and friends) happy because that is her nature. He knew it and took gross advantage to the point she had to literally flee. Good for her that Neal was there to help.

Michaele is a total liar. We saw it in the Real Housewives of D.C. all the time. She was the primary reason the series was cancelled.

If her allegations are true (doubt they are), she married him for the money which is the same as being a call girl. Nobody said it would be a free, easy ride.
