FRONT ROYAL, Va. (AP) – A Virginia judge has signed off on the divorce of celebrity White House gate crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

Tareq Salahi had filed for divorce in Warren County, Va., last September, claiming his wife was having an affair with Neal Schon, the lead guitarist for the rock band Journey.

The Warren County Circuit Court clerk’s office says a judge signed the divorce decree on Monday. The news was first reported by TMZ.com.

In a news release last week, lawyers for Tareq Salahi announced the confidential divorce settlement in which he wished his wife the best. The release also says Tareq Salahi settled a $50 million lawsuit against Schon, his band and an affiliated entertainment company.

The Salahis gained notoriety in 2009 when they crashed a White House state dinner.
