Journey Guitarist

Battle w/ Ex-Mom-In-Law

Rages On

EXCLUSIVE

0417_neal_schon_getty_article2Girl can't help it ... she has a right to speak her opinion ... so says the ex-mother-in-law of Journey guitarist Neal Schon, who's using the constitution to fire back at his defamation lawsuit.

Schon's been battling Judy Kozan in court since March -- claiming Judy's been trashing him online for years and falsely accused him of being a deadbeat dad. He sued for at least $75,000 is damages.

FYI -- Judy is the mother of Amber Schon, whom Neal divorced back in 2007.

In court docs filed earlier this month, Kozan claims anything she wrote online in her blog is protected under the First Amendment. Not only that, she claims she NEVER mentioned Schon by name, therefore she can't be held responsible for tarnishing his rep.

Judy is asking a judge to dismiss the suit ASAP.

Schon is currently engaged to White House crasher  Michaele Salahi, so he has a brand new mother-in-law to look forward to.

Talk about paranoid...like anyone would read Judy what's her name's blog anyway? If you are afraid of bad publicity, don't -- I don't know, steal another man's wife and be a bastard about it, and getting a karaoke version of Steve Perry to sing in the band HE made famous? Try being a nice guy, Neal.

Tmz you forgot to mention Neil cheated on his brand new fiancée with Mikale... His actions kind of have me on the mother in laws side, if it's true, it's not defimation of carachter, he should consider changing his carachter if he is upset about it.

He looks like the "rock star" version of Weekend At Bernie's. He and that blonde floozy deserve each other.

Steve Perry is ultra cool & this guy is untalented-he looks like tanning mom! But I digress - bad plastic surgery, bad this & bad that - he should be thanking Steve Perry everyday that he got a paycheck

Why is he bothering? So stupid. He accustomed his former wife to a certain lifestyle, then when the marriage ends, he's telling her to get a job. I can see why his ex in law is in an uproar. Wants to lavish his cash on that ho he is marrying and cut out the ex and kids. You can't sweep the old family under the carpet for the new.

Ive met him at a work shop in Indy for about 20-30 minutes, he was really down to earth and acted like a normal guy. There is way more to the story about Mr.perry, a lot like with David Lee Roth and VH.
