The settlement with the Journey for the Cure Foundation and Salahi follows an investigation by the state Office of Consumer Affairs. Under the settlement, the charity must pay $32,500 in civil penalties and attorney fees. Salahi also must pay $2,500 in penalties.
Salahi and his wife, Michaele, gained notoriety in 2009 when they crashed a White House state dinner. Earlier this month, Tareq Salahi filed a $50 million lawsuit against his wife claiming she had an affair with Journey guitarist Neil Schon in an attempt to make money for herself and the band at his expense.
