Heather Locklear is wiping clean her marriage to Bon Jovi rocker Richie Sambora – she has filed court papers to revert back to her maiden name.
The actress divorced the guitarist back in 2007 after 12 years of marriage, but on her official documents she is still called Heather Deen Sambora.

She filed a request at Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday for her name to be legally changed back to Heather Locklear.

Locklear wants her request to be granted before she applies for a new passport ahead of a planned trip aboard next month, according to TMZ.com.
