CONCORD (CBS SF/ TMZ) – Tareq Salahi has lost both his wife, Michaele Salahi and his ‘Journey’ privileges in the same week. Tareq and several members of the Bay Area band were good friends before he found out guitarist Neal Schon has been linked closely to his wife, Michaele Salahi.
The Salahi’s are best known for attending a 2009 White House State Dinner, uninvited. In 2010, Michaele was featured on the reality series, ‘The Real Housewives of Washington DC.
Security on the ‘Journey’ tour have been given orders to keep Tareq out of the backstage area during the remainder of their concert tour… even though he may have an all-access pass. Take a look at the poster that will be plastered at upcoming ‘Journey’ venues, [click to view] including the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord, where the band is performing with ‘Foreigner’ & ‘Night Ranger’ on their “Eclipse Tour” on October 5th.
According to TMZ, Tareq Salahi has officially filed for divorce, and claims he has been humiliated in the extreme by Michaele, citing her for adultery and abandonment.
