Tareq Salahi Files For Divorce From Michaele

Alleged White House gate crasher Tareq Salahi has filed for divorce, saying his wife has run off with the lead guitarist for the rock band Journey.

Tareq Salahi filed paperwork Friday in Warren County, Va., claiming his wife, Michaele Salahi, was having an affair with Neal Schon.  He also claimed in the court filing that Schon e-mailed him an obscene picture.

Court documents say the "Real Housewives of DC" couple had a prenuptial agreement, but the terms were not specified.  The couple was married on Nov. 1, 2003, accourding to paperwork filed Friday.

Neither Tareq Salahi nor his attorney returned messages seeking comment. In court papers, Tareq Salahi accused his wife of flaunting her affair to the world. He said there was no hope or possibility of reconciliation.

He reported his wife missing and possibly kidnapped Tuesday, but authorities found out she was in Memphis with Schon.

“I swear to God, I’m missing my wife and I just want to … this is not a joke,” he said Tuesday before his wife's location was announced.

The couple gained notoriety in 2009 when they crashed a White House state dinner.

This weekend the couple's winery, Oasis Vineyard, is having a liquidation sale of items belonging to the vineyard. But Tareq Salahi reportedly said the actual vineyard is not up for sale.
