RICHMOND, VA. (AP) - Celebrity White House gate crasher Tareq Salahi has filed for divorce, saying his wife has run off with the lead guitarist for the rock band Journey.

Tareq Salahi filed paperwork Friday in Warren County, Va., claiming his wife, Michaele Salahi, was having an affair with Neal Schon.

Court documents say the couple had a prenuptial agreement, but the terms were not specified.

Neither Tareq Salahi nor his attorney returned messages seeking comment. In court papers, Tareq Salahi accused his wife of flaunting her affair to the world. He said there was no hope or possibility of reconciliation.

He reported his wife missing and possibly kidnapped Tuesday, but authorities found out she was in Memphis with Schon.

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