Tareq and Michaele Update

Days after former Bravo star/present famewhore Tareq Salahi filed a $50 million lawsuit against his ex and her current, Michaele Salahi and Neal Schon are now firing back at him!

The drama began last year after Michaele, former Real Housewives of DC star, decided to leave the “controlling” Tareq to runoff with Journey member Neal. In the $50 million lawsuit Tareq filed this week, he is claiming Neal is responsible for ruining some of the business endeavors he had with Michaele, by stealing his wife from him!

TMZ reported some of those deals included $150k to participate on the Australian version of DWTS as well as some other TV offers. But obviously like herpes and Paris Hilton white on rice, Michaele and Tareq are a package deal, and the TV networks didn’t want one without the other!

In an interview with E! Online, Michaele first defends her new man, stating he is NOT to blame for the demise of her marriage with Tareq. “It’s between Tareq and I, and the marriage is over because of the control I went through with him,” she says, adding that she felt very trapped in the marriage. “It really just needs to be, ‘This didn’t work, wish each other the best and move on with our lives.”

Neal also responded to Tareq’s claims that he tortured him with his penis by a) sending him a photo of it, and b) calling him to tell him “I was f–king your wife.”

The Journey guitarist makes it clear that he “never tormented” Tareq and when it comes to the $50 mil lawsuit figure, Neal reveals he “doesn’t have a clue” as to how Tareq came up with that number. “I could use an extra $50 [million] if somebody wants to lend it to me,” jokes Neal.

Neal adds that at the end of the day, all he really cares about is Michaele! “You can try to do whatever you wanna do, take every cent that I have, but you can’t take the love that I have for her,” he says. How romantical.

“Neal cares about me and loves me so much that he hated to see me hurting,” Michaele states. “And I’m grateful that he protects me and pulls me out of that hurt.”

And when it comes to Michaele’s gross participation in Journey’s new music video for their song “Resonate,” Tareq tells E! he is “hurt” by it. He adds: “. I am also very troubled that the rock band Journey is now promoting my wife’s adulterous affair with Neal Schon. I am especially upset and disappointed that they would release this video on Valentine’s Day. This day is meant to celebrate lifetime love and commitments, not celebrate those who cheat and abandon their marriages.”

Doesn’t appear to be an end in sight to this ongoing soap opera!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? DO YOU THINK TAREQ HAS A CASE AGAINST MICHAELE AND NEAL? IS IT TIME FOR HIM TO MOVE ON?

Just when you thought you had seen it all and heard it all with the Salahis, TMZ is now reporting that Tareq Salahi believes his wife Michaele Salahi was kidnapped yesterday in Virginia.

Tareq himself spoke to TMZ confirming the story and adding that he is upset with cops as he feels they are not taking his claims seriously. Can you blame them?

According to TMZ, the latest drama with the former Real Housewives of DC stars started yesterday morning after Tareq last saw Michelle at their VA home right before he left to go the winery. Tareq tells TMZ Michaele told him she was going to get her hair done, but never made the appointment and has been missing since.

Tareq claims he got a phone call from Michaele late last night from an unfamiliar Oregon cell phone number. She reportedly told him she was going to her mother’s house, located minutes away from their home. Tareq says he was however suspicious and called Michelle’s mom who told him she had yet to speak to Michelle and was unaware of her plans.

Tareq adds that he then decided to call the cops at this point. The cops however told Tareq that Michaele had called them to inform that she was OK and was simply dealing with some “family issues.”

That wasn’t good enough for Tareq who now believes Michaele was forced to make those phone calls by her abductor. Tareq also believes his wife is in real danger because the Salahis have received death threats in the past.

Tareq reveals he is considering going to other law enforcement for help because he feels his local police has yet to take proper action. A rep for his local police department tells TMZ they are not releasing any info about the situation at this time.

In a statement released to the public, Tareq states: “It is our belief as of last night, that Michaele Salahi may have been kidnapped or abducted and being held under duress and forced to tell persons, including authorities she is okay. We are asking the public to please be on the look out for her…The Salahi family can be reached at 540-635-9933.”
