Tareq Salahi Gets Pennies From Lawsuit Against Journey’s Neal Schon

Remember that wacky husband and wife combo Michaele and Tareq Salahi from the thankfully defunct ‘Real Housewives of DC’ series? Well, they’re back in the tabloids for something far more hilarious than utter stupidity.

Let’s play catch up, shall we? Michaele and Tareq were married. During that time, she ran away from home to play house with has-been Neal Schon, the guitarist from Journey. Tareq sued the rocker for $50 million for swiping his wife — and now, the lawsuit has finally reached a conclusion.

Tareq wound up settling for a mere $12,200 and a year’s worth of mortgage payments. Way to play hardball, dude.

Tareq’s suit complained that the “stigma of being cheated on publicly hurt his image and cost him lucrative opportunities.” Because his image was so sterling after he and his bimbo wife crashed a White House state dinner party back in 2009.

And last year on ‘Today,’ Tareq said his wife ran away with Schon because she ”wanted to go more to that ‘A-[list]‘ celebrity.”

Wait, ’80s stars are still considered A-list? Awesome. Corey Feldman’s going to be a very happy man.
