Michaele Salahi wasn’t kidnapped, she just ran off with the dude from Journey

Pin it

Sometimes you just can't make this stuff up. Michaele Salahi, whose husband Tareq reported her kidnapped recently, has been "found" in Memphis with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

"Nobody kidnapped her, and they are in Memphis together," a Journey rep told TMZ.

Apparently, Schon and Michaele have quite the thing going —  TMZ maintains that the two have dated in the past, and Journey has played at Salahi-run polo matches (Side Note: Polo matches with Journey as the soundtrack are surely the Whitest Thing Ever).

Another news outlet reported that Virginia's Warren County Sheriff's Office had spoken to Michaele and found that she was "fine" but "did not want to be home right now," and did not want her husband to know where she was.

I never thought I'd say this, but I kind of feel sorry for Tareq: being cuckolded by the guy from Journey  that isn't Steve Perry or Filipino Steve Perry is a new level of embarrassing, especially when the whole thing takes place in an obnoxiously public venue like the internet. Then again, you reap what you sow, you famewhoring ass.

Of course, I'd probably run off with the guy that wrote "Wheel in the Sky," given the chance.
