Journey guitarist Neal Schon is suing his former mother-in-law for libel.

Schon says Judy Kozan has "attacked and harassed" him for years on the Internet and in the media. He says she's hinting that he has failed to support his ex-wife and two daughters.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports the lawsuit quotes a judge who says Schon has exceeded his required payments. Kozan denies mentioning Schon or her daughter in her blog. She blames a British tabloid for jumping to the conclusion that she considers Schon a deadbeat dad.
