Tareq Salahi Sues Neal Schon For $50 Million; Cites Humiliation, Metaphorical Slap in the Face

by at . Comments

Tareq Salahi claims that Neal Schon ruined his entire life and is suing the Journey rocker, who ran off with his reality star wife Michaele, for $50 million dollars.

The lawsuit was just filed by Salahi in Virginia.

Tareq says he and Michaele Salahi were on track to make a huge fortune together from multiple reality TV shows including Dancing with the Stars ... yeah right.

According to the suit, they had an offer to participate on the Australian DWTS in 2011 ... for $150,000. Not a bad chunk of change, but a fortune? Really?

Plus, he claims, the White House party crashers also had an offer to appear on another network TV show in the U.S. Which he does not name, of course.

Tareq claims the TV shows pulled their offers when Michaele Salahi ran off with Neal Schon last fall, and that Schon waged a campaign to humiliate him.

Tareq says Schon used the affair to inflict suffering upon him, emailing a pic of his penis and calling him on the phone to tell him, "I'm f**king your wife!"

In the suit, Tareq claims, "The act was a metaphorical slap in the face." Negative points for filing a frivolous lawsuit, but bonus points for not saying "literally."

Tareq claims Schon humiliated him in public, too, as the publicity would increase interest in Journey's tour ... which resulted in a major attendance boost. 

Tareq is demanding at least $50 million for emotional distress, conspiracy to defame, interfering with a contract and defamation ... plus punitive damages.

Sounds like Tareq is a candidate for "The Lonely Heart's Club". It is 1 thing for his wife to run off with an in demand guitarist/rocker, but by all indications, she has run off with Neal and hasn't looked back. I can easily believe when poor pitiful Tareq walk into the courts with his multi-million dollar lawsuit, the powers that be are going to be laughing out loud!!
