When his wife, Michaele Salahi, turned up Wednesday with Journey guitarist Neal Schon after being reported as "missing" early Tuesday, Tareq Salahi was relieved but far from pleased.

And now, TMZ has confirmed that Tareq, who had believed that his wife, 45, had been kidnapped or abducted, has officially filed for divorce.

In the divorce papers obtained by the website, Tareq, 43, includes details about his wife's affair with the 57-year-old rock star who also "paid for her travel, accommodations and other expenses" during the "adulterous relationship," according to the document.

Also mentioned in the official papers: an X-rated photo straight from Schon himself.

"Upon information and belief the paramour (Schon) sent to my email account from X email account a email with an attachment of a penis," the paperwork reads.

It goes on to say that "due to the abandonment of the marriage and adultery by Michaele, I [Tareq] have suffered both emotional and physical harm."

While Tareq says he endured "humiliation and embarrassment" from Michaele who "continually exposes our friends and acquaintances to her adulterous relationship," he does not provide any details on instances of the aforementioned physical harm.

Prior to becoming reality stars on the now defunct Real Housewives of D.C., the Salahis made headlines as "The White House Gatecrashers" when they showed up uninvited to a White House state dinner uninvited and took a picture with President Barack Obama in 2009.
