The Daily Mail has apologized to JOURNEY guitarist Neal Schon and his fiancée Michaele Salahi for a false story that it recently published. In a first for the Daily Mail, an apology has been posted on the homepage of the British newspaper’s Web site and reads as follows:
"On 22 February we published an article about Journey guitarist Neal Schon and his fiancée Michaele Salahi, entitled ‘Exclusive: Journey Guitarist Neal Schon Left Ex-Wife And Daughters “So Broke They Can’T Buy Food”... But He Gave Real Housewives Of DC Fiancée $1 Million Ring’. It claimed falsely that Mr Schon was a deadbeat dad and repeated allegations that he had neglected his ex-wife and two young children, leaving them in such a precarious financial position that they have no money for food or bills and that their home would have to be sold. It also reported claims that Mr Schon was a “drunk and abusive man” who had become “increasingly spiteful and vindictive” using his money to bully his ex-wife and that his fiancée Michaele Salahi had turned him against his former wife. We accept that these allegations are untrue and apologise to Mr Schon, Ms Salahi and the family for any distress caused. We have agreed to pay Mr Schon and Michaele damages and legal costs."
