Now Tareq Salahi wishes his ex-wife the best.

After a memorable round of mud-slinging, the former Real Housewives of D.C. husband has settled his divorce from ex-wife Michaele Salahi and a lawsuit against her and her current beau, Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

Don't stop believin' that things will work out for the best, right?

"I am thrilled with the resolution of this case and to close this chapter in my life and now move forward in a positive manner," Tareq, who once upon a time called his estranged wife a "groupie slut" after she left him for Schon, said in a statement released to E! News.

"I always maintained that my claims were valid and eventually they would be recognized as such. I wish Michaele the best."

Tareq had sued Schon and his ex for $50 million, claiming their actions cost him all sorts of lucrative reality-TV deals and related paydays, but a Virginia judge threw the complaint out for good last month.

"The confidential settlement in the suits against Journey, Neal Schon and Michaele was a win for all concerned," Tareq's lawyer, Charles B. Roberts. "It allows for more clarity as Mr. Salahi's case moves forward. We are now asking the circuit court judge to reconsider the case against DD Entertainment, the Hollywood agent formerly shared by Mr. Salahi and then wife Michaele, and now by her and Neal Schon."

Tareq is claiming that DD Entertainment owner Gina Rodriguez withheld information, and subsequently cost him money, when Michaele took off with Schon back in September 2011, prompting him to report her missing to police.

A rep for Journey, meanwhile, told TMZ that Schon and the band are "very pleased with the resolution of all legal issues and claims involving Mr. Salahi. While a judge previously dismissed Mr. Salahi's claims on two separate occasions, all matters have now been finally resolved."

Time for all three to ride off into the sunset and never bother us, er, each other again.
