Celebrity White House gate crasher husband Tareq Salahi is glad his wife, Michaele, is OK but heartbroken that she's left home to be with another man, the lead guitarist for the rock band Journey.
TMZ reported that a representative for Journey said she was safe and with guitarist Neal Schon.
"Tareq is devastated but he is relieved to know that Michaele is safe," Salahi attorney David Silek said. "That was his first concern."
Silek said it's premature to say if the couple would get a divorce.
Diane Dimond, who wrote the book "Cirque du Salahi" about the couple, said that Michaele had been frustrated with her husband and that she had a previous relationship with Schon.
"She told me, in effect, that he was one of the loves of her life," Dimond said.
Warren County Sheriff Daniel T. McEathron said that deputies believed Tareq's report was genuine and that authorities did not plan to press charges.
"We believe the Mr. Salahi did not know where his wife was. We know that she was not home, and we know that she was where she wanted to be. As of right now we don't think it's any different than the way it came in.
"If we know that this may have been some type of ... false complaint, I assure you that we would look into it a whole lot closer in a different direction because a lot of man hours were spent yesterday to work on this."
However, the distraught husband is convinced ... his cheating wife and the Journey bandmate are making him miserable by making cruel crank calls ... this according to sources closely connected to Tareq.
Supposedly the number that calls is from the same Oregon area code she had called from before.
Tareq then dialed the number and a guy answered, asking, "Who's this?" But more revealing -- there was clearly a party going on in the background.
They deny they made the phone calls.
