Michaele Salahi And Neal Schon Talk About Their “Fairy Tale” Romance

“It’s like a fairy tale. It is, it really is. I’m very happy, very happy after waiting for her for 15 years. Now I want to get beyond all this media hype that Tareq has put out there. It’s really quite embarrassing. … What happened was [backstage], she takes off her wedding ring, right in front of Tareq.

She is alive and well in Memphis, safe in the arms of Journey guitarist Neal Schon (who also happens to be her former lover). Well, thank God she wasn’t abducted. A note to Tareq: when your wife goes for her hair appointment and never comes back, she most likely is leaving you for another man. And maybe, just maybe if you don’t stop believin’, she will come back to you once she tires of life on the road or needs her roots dyed, whichever comes first. [Us Weekly, Bumpshack] Keep reading »
