Now that Tareq Salahi has accepted that wife Michaele Salahi was not kidnapped but has instead run off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon, the “Real Housewives of D.C.” househusband has filed for divorce.
“Over the objections of me, she continually exposes our friends and acquaintances to her adulterous relationship and has flaunted the same throughout the community, the nation and indeed the world, and thus caused … me to suffer great harm, humiliation, and embarrassment,” Tareq Salahi said in a divorce petition filed Friday in Warren County, Va., to end their nearly eight year marriage.
“There is no hope or possibility of reconciliation,” he said, adding that he “has been greatly hurt and disturbed” by her actions.
And he’s not the only one. Tareq Salahi, 43, claims their Doberman Pinscher, who recently had a heart attack, has been too depressed to get out of bed since his wife’s departure. TMZ obtained a video of the pooch.
Schon’s wife of two months, former Playboy Playmate Ava Fabian, also isn’t happy. “This is very painful for me. I’m very hurt,” Fabian told TMZ.
Asked if she would consider getting back together with the 57-year-old rocker, she replied, “Um, no, thank you.”
Michaele Salahi, meanwhile, has locked her husband out of Journey concerts. Signs with his picture and a warning not to allow “this man” backstage despite his all-access pass were plastered at the Aaron’s Amphitheatre in Atlanta recently.
It’s just as well. Who knows how Salahi might have reacted seeing his wife shake her groove thing on stage with Schon. The three were once chummy.
Michaele Salahi, 45, might be losing more than her marriage by running off with a rockstar. According to the Salahi’s prenuptial agreement, obtained by TMZ, she is stripped of any rights to money or property accumulated during their marriage if she cheats, and she forfeits her right to spousal support if she moves out.
