Our money is still on “publicity stunt,” but nonetheless, the Divorce of the Decade marches on. Now that Tareq Salahi has filed for divorce, TMZ gleefully reports that Michaele could find herself broke: Their prenup strips her of the right to any money or property accumulated during their marriage if she cheats, and she forfeits her right to spousal support if she moves out. As for Tareq, Perez Hilton notes that he’s been banned from all Journey concerts, but he still has wine to help him through this tough time: TMZ reports that he was at the bankruptcy auction of his own winery yesterday, trying to buy back some of the equipment to get it back up and running.
The New York Daily News also has details of Tareq’s divorce filing, in which he accuses his (soon-to-be-ex?) wife of flaunting her relationship with Journey guitarist Neal Schon “throughout the community, the nation, and indeed the world.” He also notes there’s “no hope or possibility of reconciliation,” a feeling echoed by Schon’s wife of two months. If this whole thing is just a way for the Salahis to keep their name in the headlines, it could very well be a joint stunt: Foreigner, currently touring with Journey, says it’s been great for business. “I’m thinking about staging my own kidnapping,” the lead singer of that band tells TMZ. “If only I could tolerate being around those horribly obnoxious women from one of those shows for more than five minutes.” In more absurd Salahi news, TMZ has pictures of Michaele onstage with Journey, and Tareq has pictures of his sad dog wasting away without Michaele.
