Michaele Salahi

I Take The 5th on Adultery

1/15/2012 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tareq & Michaele Salahi
Michaele Salahi will neither confirm nor deny she banged Journey guitarist Neal Schon behind her husband's back ... this according to new legal docs.

Turns out, adultery is a CRIME in Virginia ... and if Michaele admits that she slept around with Schon while she was married to Tareq Salahi, she could be punished by the law.

So, instead of responding to the adultery accusations Tareq included in his divorce filing --  Michaele has now filed documents in which she "asserts her privilege pursuant to the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution not to respond."

Additionally, admitting to adultery could put Michaele at a serious disadvantage in her divorce proceedings -- because as we first reported, the couple's pre-nup stipulates ... if Michaele commits adultery, she gets zilch for spousal support.

Sources close to Michaele tell TMZ, she's not concerned -- because Michaele was already separated from Tareq when she started dating Neal. The couple celebrated their four-month anniversary on Friday.

For the record -- the crime of adultery in Virginia is considered a misdemeanor, punishable by a $250 fine.

If you're unfamiliar with the 5th Amendment .... here's a lesson from Dave Chappelle:

pretty sure Tarek has no money for spousal support so it really is not an issue. He seems like a controlling jerk so it's hard to feel bad for him

What if she can prove that Terd Salahi was aware and even pimped her out on occasion? Imagine that's illegal too, along with amateur pornography (home movies)...this could be endless fun...

Not celebrities. If banging someone from Journey makes you a celeb, I am sure there are quite a few men out there that should be featured hear at TMZ.

TMZ why don't you report on the rock star boyfriend's divorce. Thats got to be alot more intresting, being that he left his beautiful wife after only a few month of marriage.

Lucky for her , she is in America. Does any one know what happens to "Third World" wives who are even suspected of infidelity? (They do NOT get spousal support!)

AHAHAHAHA

What assists does either of them have? Other than bankruptcy? What a FARCE!

But anymichaelisamanbybirth, doesn't Michael(e) have to file for separation for it to be legal? With that opinion, isn't (s)he considered an adulterer? Just because you walk out on a marriage (without filing fir either a divorce or separation) does not make it legal for one to carry on an affair, no?

/laughing at these wh*res

"asserts her privilege pursuant to the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution not to respond."

In other words, she's an undercover slut.

Michaele was the only reason I watched The Real Housewives.
She is hot and watching her style is the best.
If you watched the show you would be happy for her to have a new man!

Michaele pled the Fifth! No surprising there!! When someone pleads Fifth Admendment not to incriminate themselves, but it shows she is definitely guilty! I am not getting Neal Schon off the hook here, he is guilty too,and especially that he is married too with,Ava, hot playboy centerfold,plus classy lady than the skank bitch!
