Most people get to forget their in-laws after divorce … but not Journey guitarist Neal Schon — he”s suing his ex-mom-in-law for defamation, claiming the woman is continuing to ruin his life … by badmouthing him on the Internet.
Neal filed the defamation suit against Judy Kozan, the mother of Amber Schon — whom Neal divorced in 2007 — claiming Judy has “attacked and harassed” him through Internet postings and false comments to the media for years.
According to the lawsuit, Judy published a blog article in January, accusing Schon of not paying her daughter enough money to support herself — letting their two little girls “go homeless,” putting his ex “in a situation where she literally has no money for food, gas for the car, bills, nothing.”
Schon says he”s paid his ex amply … more than $1.3 million to be exact … and her mom”s lies have tarnished his reputation, resulting in multiple media outlets accusing him of being a “deadbeat” dad.
He”s suing for at least $75,000.
FYI — Judy has since removed the offending blog post … and replaced it with a post that sounds a lot like a retraction, in which she says the “deadbeat dad” reports are FALSE. Too little, too late
