Journey Guitarist

Sues Ex-Mother-in-Law --

Stop Trashing Me Online!

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?

Neal is paying his former wife at least $10 grand a month for his two daughters'. I suspect Amber Schon has been spending quite a bit of that money at Neiman Marcus. I raised three kids on the same amount and they had the best of everything including me, 24/7. I don't blame Neal for suing, anything to shut this shrew up.

Mother -in-laws should self destruct upon the first child's marriage. I'm all for euthanasia for those hanging around.

What is wrong with his face? His ex mother-in-law should have kept her thoughts to herself!!This guy lost credibility when he hooked up with the ex Mrs. Salahi.
