Ex-Real Housewives of D.C. star Tareq Salahi is one persistent dude. After his suit against estranged wife Michaele and her lover, Journey frontman Neal Schon, was dismissed by a judge in February, the former White House gatecrasher has filed another suit, according to Radar Online.
Originally, the judge turned down Tareq’s suit to sue Michaele and Neal — as well as their joint promotion company, DD Entertainment — for $50 million each, claiming his wife’s affair with the music legend ruined the growing Salahi brand. The judge reportedly gave Tareq the opportunity to come up with “valid claims” and re-file.
On Monday, Tareq reportedly did just that when he filed a new suit with the Circuit Court of Warren County in Virginia. The new suit says he’s suing Michaele because they "entered into a verbal contract to jointly pursue entertainment projects and to divide the profits for their mutual benefit."
We understand his qualms with Michaele, but Tareq also places blame on both Neal and the couple’s former reps, DD Entertainment. Tareq alleges he and his wife’s brand — ‘The Salahis’ — was demolished when the guitarist swooped in and swept Michaele off her feet. Yup, forget breaking up their marriage, Tareq’s angle is that Neal stole his business partner!
As for what the reality star lost when Michaele split, he alleges that he and Michaele had several lucrative business deals in the works before the affair, including a movie deal and several high-profile television appearances.
While Tareq solely blames his wife’s infidelity for the biz deals never coming to fruition in the lawsuit, insiders tell RadarOnline the offers were canceled or postponed indefinitely for reasons outside the affair.
One thing's for sure: The guy doesn't give up!
