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.

The woman is a s.l.u.t. Plain and simple. And if her boyfriend had done this to a real man people would be visiting him on boot hill.

If that was the truth when she first left him she would have told that story to make him look like a s*** bag and her like the victim in the public's eyes. Instead she waits months until no one cares (not that we cared then) and brings it up again. Remember the day she left he took video of her in bed giggling and playing with him. Yeah, right, scared. No it's wrong and bad. Please take Kim and go away!!!

Abuse is the flavor of the day for these pseudo celebrities. She will write a book and maybe BravoTV will put her in RHWOBH with Taylor Armstrong. In any case, why are these women worthy of news stories?

I don't know this Tareq Charecter, and have no desire to. From what everyone has read his wife is a whore, and the guy that looks like a beaver from journey, who had just gotten married?? is a looser. So I wouldn't care to know either of them either.

The details are in the timing. She left within days of the winery being auctioned off. The Attorney General of the State of Virginia is in the process of conducting an investigation of fraud after several people filed criminal complaints against the Salahi's Virginia Wine Country Tours Limo biz, and new attempts to conduct a charity event brought in too much scrutiny from the State and local authorities. Things were getting too hot for Michaele in Virginia! Michaele Salahi has more to fear from the law than Tareq Salahi. Perhaps she is trying to build up a defense for the day the law catches up to her i.e. Tareq forced her to go along with the biz and charity scams. Making Tareq the fall guy, Michaele?

Does Tareq want to be portrayed as an abusive and violent husband or a pathetic loser cuckolded by his wife who left him for guitarist from the band Journey? On the other hand, does Michaele want to be portrayed as the abused wife of a violent rageaholic or a pathetic groupie who's banging the guitarist from the band Journey? Tough call. The only winners here are Journey who been brought bad from a well-deserved obscurity and their lead guitarist, who's banging some other guys wife. The losers, of course, are the rest of us ...

Why is it, that these women never claim this is happening, until after they run off with somebody else? Then it's all the man's fault because they are violent alcoholics, ie; Mel Gibson for one. And before you start on me, I am a woman who was in a violent relationship, but I complained about it long before I got the nerve to leave and I didn't run off with another man!

Winston9 is absolutely correct, things were getting too hot for Missy in VA and the law was closing in. The icing on the cake, and Missy loves icing, the money was much greener on Neal's side of the fence. She's an idiot who left one a-hole to be with another a-hole. Go away already!!! Note to Neal, we all saw your pee pee.

YUCK! Both of them are substandard fame whores, but I must say, he has always stricken me as diabolical. On this I going to have to take her side as the lesser of two evils.

Lia, then obviously you don't know her she and Tareq are two peas out of the same pod. An Neal is proving to be the long lost pea that fell out of the pod and rolled under the stove until he was found and reunited with Michaele.

This broad is full of ****. Another "C" word trying to rake a guy over the coals. Neil deserves the "C" word.
