Actress Denise Richards and rocker Richie Sambora have rekindled their romance, according to U.S. reports.
The pair first found love in 2006 – shortly after Richards parted from husband Charlie Sheen and Sambora split from wife Heather Locklear, and now it appears the couple has begun dating again.The Bon Jovi star took the one-time Bond girl out for a romantic dinner on Sunday and a source tells, “They’re very happy and are dating. They never stopped caring for each other.”

And it’s clear Richards has always been fond of her former neighbor – in her memoir, The Real Girl Next Door, she wrote, “Richie and I shared an easiness I hadn’t before had. We were able to be open, honest, and completely authentic with each other, with no judgment.”

She added, “I don’t regret my relationship with him… Richie is a wonderful man. He came into my life when I needed him and he needed me. We’ll always have that bond.”

Meanwhile, a source tells, “They’ve always stayed friends, through everything they’ve gone through. He’s had a rough patch, she’s had her own stuff but they’re both in a great place right now.”

The Bon Jovi rocker checked into rehab in April in a bid to battle his own alcohol addiction problems.
