Journey guitarist Neal Schon has filed a defamation suit against his former mother-in-law, Judy Kozan. TMZ.com reported that the suit claims that Kozan -- the mother of Schon's former wife, Amber Schon, whom he divorced in 2007 -- has "attacked and harassed" him on the Internet for years, and specifies that Kozan published a blog article in January 2013 slamming Neal for not supporting his ex-wife and children. According to the suit, Kozan accused the Journey co-founder of "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.'"
Neal Schon is suing for $1.3 million citing that his former mother-in-law's online posts have damaged his reputation leading some reports labeling him a "deadbeat dad." Since the suit Kozan has backtracked, replacing the posts with a blog entry claiming the "deadbeat dad" reports are false.
