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.

Tareq also alleges the affair also cut off paid interviews and appearances, despite the fact that he got quite a lot of mileage out of whining about it.

He also modestly calls himself and Michaele “instant international celebrities” and “household names” after crashing a White House state dinner.

Their “gate-crashing” resulted in the Salahis “being offered regular paid appearances as ‘The Salahis,’” he claims … and they’re no longer.

Tareq added: “The Salahis” became a “financially prosperous enterprise.” Sadly for him, that ship has sailed, along with any hope of winning this case.
