FORT WAYNE, Inc. (CelebrityAccess) Journey guitarist Neal Schon, who is suing Live Nation after his wife was allegedly assaulted at the band’s show in Fort Wayne, Ind., in 2017, has posted footage of the alleged incident, claiming it has been doctored.
Schon claims that, while he was performing at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, his wife, Michaele Schon, attempted to approach the stage but was forcibly removed by a security guard, causing pain and suffering, according to the filing.
“During the latter half of the concert, Michaele attempted to approach the stage to take photographs of the band. As she did so, she was violently assaulted and
forcibly removed from the area by Mike Frantz,” the complaint says. “Frantz intended to cause and did cause harmful contact with Michaele’s person.”
Michaele claims she was thrown into a PA system and Neal wants to have a resolution to the situation before the band heads out on its tour. Both he and his wife have filed a lawsuit.
“Defendant Frantz’s conduct, as described in this complaint, was extreme, outrageous, atrocious, went beyond all possible bounds of decency, and is utterly intolerable in a civilized community.”
Schon recently uploaded footage of the alleged incident claiming it was doctored. Although it may sound like a conspiracy theory, Michaele can be seen teleporting from one area near the stage to another in a split second.
“They are trying to say that there’s nothing wrong with the film even though as you’ve seen there is clearly 20 seconds missing right when she was attacked and shoved into the PA system,” Schon said, adding, “The real problem is that he did not say he was sorry ever and flatly denies that it even happened. My wife Michaele has had MS for years and was doing beautifully until this incident happened.”
Schon said his wife is “kind and helpful to all” and “We are fighting this together and will not stop until there is Justice. This has also now truly affected both our lives.”
