Journey Guitarist

Sues Ex-Mother-in-Law --

Stop Trashing Me Online!

EXCLUSIVE

Most people get to forget their in-laws after divorce ... but not Journey guitarist Neal Schon -- he's suing his ex-mom-in-law for defamation, claiming the woman is continuing to ruin his life ... by badmouthing him on the Internet.

Neal filed the defamation suit against Judy Kozan, the mother of Amber Schon -- whom Neal divorced in 2007 -- claiming Judy has "attacked and harassed" him through Internet postings and false comments to the media for years.

According to the lawsuit, Judy published a blog article in January, accusing Schon of not paying her daughter enough money to support herself -- letting their two little girls "go homeless," putting his ex "in a situation where she literally has no money for food, gas for the car, bills, nothing."

Schon says he's paid his ex amply ... more than $1.3 million to be exact ... and her mom's lies have tarnished his reputation, resulting in multiple media outlets accusing him of being a "deadbeat" dad.

He's suing for at least $75,000. 

FYI -- Judy has since removed the offending blog post ... and replaced it with a post that sounds a lot like a retraction, in which she says the "deadbeat dad" reports are FALSE. Too little, too late?

The sad thing about MS is this, when it hits it hits fast and people think you might be drunk. After a few years of getting worse and worse you are left to using a wheelchair and being carried.

93,107 Michaele. I get it you're going for 100,000 Pakistani Facebook fans--seriously this doesn't embarrass you in the least little bit? Maybe I'll buy some likes, where do you buy yours and how much do they cost? Aren't you concerned about viruses, hackers, diverters and squashers?

>nice try...your constant failure at the guessing game brings me endless enjoyment
.
It's mildly interesting to wonder which person you are, ITSASECRET. But it's not like it makes any difference. You constantly drop inside intel to prove you are not some random observer. Whether you are Neal or Michaele or one of their goons is immaterial. Who cares if the mouthpiece is a queen or a pawn?
.
I imagine your are one of the persons who has been taunting Judy Kozan with those ugly PMs for the last year &1/2. I've read them and I can see how they too would bring a person like you "endless enjoyment."
.
If you serve Michaele, it wouldn't surprise me if provoking Judy wasn't the goal from the start.
.
If so, you were splendidly victorious. But is that really something to be proud of?

> Wonder if this will come out in court.
.
In Neal's lawsuit against Judy? Ha, nice lead in. You betcha. (And no, using that phrase doesn’t mean I live in MN.)
.
When Michaele left T for Neal, Judy started getting ugly Facebook PMs from a range of fake profiles. Just like Hey Jude and ITSASECRET’s posts here, they would drop specific intel that only Neal or Michaele would know, while taunting Judy over her weight, her grandson Liam (as they also do here in this TMZ thread I might add) and childishly claiming if that Michaele hadn’t passed on Neal years back ‘there would be no Amber,” blah, blah, blah. Plus the usual accusations of jealousy and whatever.
.
While Neal was visiting MN he saw Judy eating a cheeseburger while supposedly dieting and made a crack about it to Amber. Several of the sock puppets used a cheeseburger as their icon.
.
One of the puppets was Delta Bradshaw, whom a few of you might remember from back when some mysterious party created that Peanut Gallery site to humiliate JR with things they may or may not have obtained by hacking into his FB account. I don’t recall whether Delta posted at Peanut, but it was the same era and she definitely posted a lot at that site you Salahi-watcher guys had at the time, posting there as a representative of Michaele.
.
In addition to the abrupt changes Judy sensed in Neal’s attitude toward the Kozan’s, these PMs were central to Judy’s experience the last 1 ½ years and were absolutely the basis for that second blog post she made concerning the anonymous man’s girlfriend.
.
Privately, Judy was being provoked non-stop, while the public story was how this jealous mother-in-law was bad mouthing poor misunderstood Michaele.
.
I wonder if Neal has any idea how he has been manipulated. If so, he’s probably the only person in all this who doesn’t. Too focused on his FB account being “hacked” so some dastardly person can reduce his number of fan “likes” to notice, I guess.
.
To defend herself in the defamation trial, Judy will need to prove her statements about the girlfriend she mentioned in that blog were true. She can call any witness who cares to provide evidence on that matter and everyone will be under oath. With so many witnesses to choose from, how will the poor woman ever decide?

She said she has MS, she even went to a doctor and he confirmed she has MS which was on some show. But she is NOT a CELEBRITY and to compare her to the others is ridiculous!!! Lets STOP treating these people as celebrities! I don't care who posted it!
