Ex-Wife of Journey's Neal Schon Responds to Salahi Affair


Amber Schon, ex-wife of Journey guitarist Neal Schon, has broken her silence regarding her former husband's affair with "Real Housewives of D.C." star Michaele Salahi.

Schon released a statement through her rep. "Ms. Schon is aware that there is intense media interest in her former husband's romantic pursuits. Ms. Schon is a single mother to their two children and is also a full-time student -- her ex-husband's romantic activities are not at the top of her list of priorities. Her only interest in her former husband's love life is ensuring that, as a mother, those who have access to her children are safe and trustworthy."

The statement continued, "At the end of the day, Ms. Schon intends to use her story to empower other women to make good relationship decisions and avoid some of the mistakes she has made. She will share her story over the next several weeks, but for the time being, Ms. Schon respectfully requests that the news media respect her privacy and that of her children."

Michaele Salahi recently made headlines when she ran off with Schon, prompting her husband, Tareq Salahi, to first report her as missing and then to file for divorce.

The Salahis first came to national attention when they crashed a White House reception.
