The former reality star cites adultery and abandonment in his filing against Michaele
The filing comes after Tareq reported his wife – a former castmember on The Real Housewives of D.C. – missing to authorities.
But it turned out she was safe and sound with Journey guitarist Neal Schon in Tennessee, where the band has a gig with Foreigner.
Tareq claims the pair have humiliated him, going so far as to accuse Schon of sending him a photo of genitalia presumed to belong to the guitarist. He cites adultery and abandonment as the reason for the divorce, according to TMZ, which first reported the filing.
In the papers, Tareq reports that “the paramour [Neal] sent to my email account … a email with an attachment of a penis.”
“[Michaele] continually exposes our friends and acquaintances to her adulterous relationship and has flaunted the same throughout the community, the nation and indeed the world, and thus caused me to suffer great harm, humiliation and embarrassment,” he adds.
Additionally, Tareq says he believes the pair have been in a romantic relationship “for a period of months” and reveals that he and his wife had signed a prenuptial agreement.
