Tareq Salahi on Split With Michaele: I Chose the House Over Boobs!

by at . Comments

Tareq Salahi has “gone through so many emotions” since his wife Michaele Salahi and Neal Schon ran off together, he doesn't even know where to start.

But trust us, he'll talk you through every step as he picks up the pieces.

During a press conference for Celebrity Fight Night: An Alki David FilmOn Production, in which he'll be throwing down, Tareq spoke about why he’s getting involved in celebrity boxing and, of course, Michaele ditching him.

Terrible People

“After Michaele abandoned our home and our marriage, the house was just empty,” he explained. “I think it’s very good for the heart and the mind."

"I’ve gone through so many emotions from sadness and crying, ust trying to understand what went wrong with the marriage and her double life.”

Asked whether money played a role in their split, Tareq said:

“Yes, I think that played a part in it because here is the thing. We all have - in marriages, in relationships - we all have to have conversations about money and paying bills. So let's say you have a pot of money sitting there."

"Well, Michaele would say, ‘I want to go to plastic surgery on my lips, face and boobs,’ versus, ‘Well we got to pay the mortgage!’ I chose the house."

"If she is going to say I am controlling, I will own up to that because if she is going to turn around and say I am being controlling over money, then yeah, let's keep the house over boobs. You know what I am saying? Am I right? It is what it is.”

Tareq says he's still trying to figure out what went wrong.

“I just don’t understand how anyone can run away from a home and turn their back on what I considered a beautiful marriage. She wasn’t just my lover. She was my best friend. So, who does that and who flaunts it? It’s disgusting.”

“Who does that? Nobody does that. It’s a disgraceful, disgusting thing that they’ve done ... The rocker guy sent a picture of his penis. Well, that’s why I’m fighting."

"I’m fighting for anybody that’s been cheated on.”

Amen, brother.


Shout out to Tareq,
Michaele has left the building. Be a man, and stop groveling over what you think you had with Michaele. By all indications she has flown the coop and is Not looking back. Do Not spend too much time complaining and blasting your wife and former Lady Love. If the magic go out of her head over heels fling with Neil, it will be harder for her to borrow your heart as a shoulder to cry on. PEACE!!


I'm not sure what happened nor do I really care but I will say one thing: I do agree with him about her cheating. If he was that abusive/controlling, then get a divorce. No one deserves that. I understand that money does play a major role in why couples fight but whatever happened to the vows that they made? As I said, she could have just asked for a divorce. She sounds like a coward who took the easy way out. Very sad.


I can't believe anyone is actually buying the load of complete crap that Tareq Salahi is spewing. I knew he and his wife personally and had to deal with them for business purposes. He is absolutely controlling and rude and has a temper for days. I personally was verbally attacked by him and threatened with a lawsuit for trying to get him to pay a bill. He is a liar and a cheat, oh and by the way, he ran his parents business in to the ground and then sued them. Nice son huh? He spent just as much money - that he didn't actually have. Ask him about the maserati that got re-posessed. Check out all of his fraudulent charities, business scams and lawsuits for non-payment. Then tell me how sorry you feel for the man.


For once...a reality show person who makes sense! I often wondered how all of those "Housewives" managed with all those plastic whatever-they-had-done. I remember the episode of one OC wife and her daughter having plastic surgery one week...and her husband filing bankruptcy the next. At least Tareq has the real cahones to know when to say "NO".
