White House party crasher, former reality star and perennial fame whore Tareq Salahi is running for Governor of Virginia as an "independent Republican."

Michaele Salahi and Tareq Salahi

Salahi said back in April that he planned to run for governor and seek the Republican nomination, but decided yesterday to run apart from the GOP ticket.

State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II was the only person to file as a GOP candidate for governor, and he was deemed the nominee Monday.

He is expected to face veteran campaign strategist Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, with the former Mr. Michaele Salahi running as a third party candidate.

Michaele and Tareq Salahi are both officially free to go about their lives nailing rock stars, crashing White House parties, desperately seeking fame and so on.

They're divorced.

Tareq announced (and made a huge spectacle of the fact) that he would divorce Michele last September after she ran off with Journey's Neal Schon.

A Virginia judge signed the divorce decree yesterday, making Michaele and Tareq's split official. All their assets have been divided and accounted for.

After Michaele ditched him without notice in 2011, Tareq subsequently sued for $50 million, claiming Neal hijacked his wife and humiliated him too.

He claimed that Schon emailing a photo of his junk, combined with the loss of future revenue from reality shows, entitled him to that sum. Right.

The lawsuit is now settled as well as the divorce, Tareq says: "I do wish Michaele the best and now I can focus on my race for governor of Virginia."

He's serious, and since that state limits its chief exec to one term, the job is his for the taking in 2014 if he wants it ... and idiots vote for him.

Tareq Salahi has ended his legal beef with estranged wife Michaele and her lover Neal Schon of Journey fame. We know you've been on pins and needles. Exhale.

After she surprisingly left him for the rocker, Michaele and Tareq have finalized their divorce - and he's dropped a (largely frivolous) lawsuit against Schon as well.

Don't stop believin' that a confidential settlement will be reached ... or something.

"I am thrilled with the resolution of this case and to close this chapter in my life and now move forward in a positive manner," Tareq Salahi told E! News.

"I always maintained that my claims were valid and eventually they would be recognized as such," he adds, however, "I wish Michaele the best."

Tareq had sued for $50 million, claiming his ex and her lover's actions cost him all sorts of lucrative stuff, not to mention were really humiliating.

Salahi says he's still suing DD Entertainment, the Hollywood agent formerly shared by himself and Michaele, and now by herself and Neal Schon.

Tareq is claiming that DD withheld information, and subsequently cost him money, when Michaele took off with Schon back in September 2011.

This prompted him to report her missing to police. She wasn't missing of course ... she'd just left him to go on a Journey with secret paramour Neal.

Anyway, glad it's resolved ... now go away, all of you.

Tareq Salahi's lawsuit against his estranged wife Michaele Salahi was recently dismissed, but he's instead turned his focus to her lover, Journey guitarist Neal Schon, the band’s personal recording label and their publicist.

Yep, he's re-filing a lawsuit against all of the above.

Tareq alleged that Michaele and Neal’s 2011 affair was a calculated attempt to re-launch the struggling rock band, ruining Tareq in the process.

The male Salahi says that when he was doing Michaele, Neal Schon was also screwing him out of a deal with Oprah Winfrey (!?), a $300,000 gig on Dancing With the Stars and a big-screen adaptation of their life. Mmm hmm.

The pair was to receive 40 percent of the sale, he claims ... so approximately $8.00 total gross, assuming the two of them even bought tickets.

Michaele Salahi and Neal Schon scored a resounding legal victory over her ex-husband Tareq when a judge threw out his ridiculous claim Wednesday.

A Virginia judge dismissed Tareq's $50 million lawsuit that thee former Real Housewives star and her Journey guitarist lover defamed him somehow.

Short story: They screwed him over (and each other a lot) big time, but that's not illegal. The judge called the case"not legally sufficient" to proceed.

  • Tareq and Michaele

The lawsuit claimed Schon sent pictures of his junk to Tareq, and that the Journey guitarist also called him and said boastfully, "I'm f--king your wife!"

How he thought that entitled him to $50 million, who the heck knows. He also said his divorce from Michaele ruined their "brand" (LOL), of course.

Tareq had asserted that TV shows pulled offers from the former White House party crashers after his wife ran off with Schon last fall, which is likely BS.

Even in this culture, who wants to watch a reality show about the Salahis? They were already on a Real Housewives iteration that was cancelled!

For whatever reason, Tareq sought damages for emotional distress, conspiracy to defame, interference with a contract, unjust enrichment and so on.

The judge rejected all of those claims. Case closed.

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.

There have been so many shocking celebrity divorces lately, even by Hollywood standards. Not just breakups, but actual marriages crumbling before our eyes.Seal, Heidi Klum

Some did surprise us more than others, but we can honestly say we didn't see any of these divorce filings - all from the last 12 months alone! - coming at all.

Which of these splits shocked you the most? Vote in our poll below ...

  • Kris, Kim Photo
  • Leah and Corey Split!
  • Michaele and Tareq Salahi Picture

10. Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard. The New Girl star and the Death Cab For Cutie member certainly seemed like a perfect match. Apparently not.

9. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Okay, not all that surprising for myriad reasons we have been over ad nauseam on THG. But 72 days?! Idiots.

8. Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Like Kim and Kris, nothing about these two truly shocks us. Except her running off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

7. Leah Messer and Corey Simms. The stars of Teen Mom 2 seem so happy ... on the episodes that are still airing now! Well, not last night's. Still!

6. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Seemed an odd fit at the start, but their split came totally out of left field. Now she's taking nitrous hits. Nitrous.

  • Seal and Heidi Klum Photo

  • Maria Shriver, Arnold Schwarzenegger

5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Apparently not the marrying type.

4. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Remember them? We forgot too.

3. Katy Perry and Russell Brand. They're polar opposites, but were so crazy about each other and we thought it was just crazy enough to last forever.

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. The heiress to the Kennedy political dynasty and the Governator seemed as rock solid as they come.

1. Heidi Klum and Seal. Still fresh, but as stunning as any other celeb divorce we can remember based on the couple's perpetual displays of love.

Which celebrity divorce filing shocked you most?

Michaele Salahi and Neal Schon didn't just run off and leave their partners, they humiliated them in the process ... and her estranged husband Tareq is suing over it.

Tareq Salahi is demanding his estranged wife and her rock star boyfriend cough up $17 MILLION DOLLARS for publicly humiliating him with their torrid, public affair.

Good luck with that. The legal basis, supposedly, is this:

  • Neal Schon Image
  • Hot Michaele Salahi
  • Tareq Salahi Picture

Tareq's attorney claims that the adulterous duo profited unfairly off Tareq's misery and sabotaged his career in the process. The first part is a stretch. The second ... LOL.

The taunting, the $10,000 lingerie shopping sprees, the onstage make-out sessions, the pic of Neal's junk Tareq says he was emailed ... all salt in Salahi's wounds.

According to Tareq, all the buzz surrounding Michaele Salahi's affair with Neal Schon boosted ticket sales of Journey's recent tour, which she ran off to join him on.

All the while torpedoing Tareq's reality TV dreams. It's so sad really.

Making matters worse, Tareq claims Michaele and Neal have put the wheels in motion for their own reality show, leaving Tareq in the dust ... with $2 million of debt.

Tareq wants $17 million to compensate him. Don't hold your breath, T.

Tareq Salahi asked for this one.

His estranged wife may be a groupie slut, but she's got a rock star doting on her. Michaele Salahi's boyfriend Neal Schon just dropped more than $10,000 on lingerie for her during a Beverly Hills shopping spree this week.

Why did he do such a thing? Well, she had none left, seeing as ... 

  • Neal Schon Picture
  • Michaele Salahi, Husband

OH YEAH: Neal is gonna be making that face a lot more after this.

Tareq sold off all her underwear and bras at an auction in a totally classy move not designed to get any publicity whatsoever. So much for their public truce.

Neal and Michaele hit up La Perla - a ridiculously expensive lingerie boutique on Rodeo Drive - this weekend. The Journey guitarist spent $10,496.55 there.

That got her 42 bras and 38 sets of panties ... at approximately $130 per item.

Sometimes it pays to be a groupie slut ... who rubs it in her husband's face.

Tareq Salahi promises to stop saying Michaele Salahi is groupie slut.

The estranged spouses have agreed to suspend their very public, very nasty divorce proceedings while they try to hash out a settlement via private mediation.

An odd move, considering that even being heartbroken, you'd figure Tareq would love the attention. But apparently he wants this done privately and quickly.

Tareq Salahi filed a formal request to dismiss his divorce complaint earlier this month, and private mediation between the two is set to begin in November.

That's when Michaele's other man, Neal Schon, finishes up his tour with his band, Journey, and the groupie slut herself presumably has a freer schedule.

If the two can't reach an agreement during mediation, TMZ reports, Tareq is free to refile papers, meaning their "private" dispute could become public.

Odds of that happening are pretty good if you ask us. Why punt that much free publicity, especially when you're the "good" guy (relatively speaking).
