Denise Richards and Richie Sambora have split - again
The couple - who rekindled their romance last November following their break-up in 2007 - have decided once more to call time on their relationship as they think they`re better off as friends.
A source told Us Weekly magazine: "They had a moment a few months back when they were going to give it a go, but have decided they`re better as friends."
Denise - who has three daughters, Sam, seven, and six-year-old Lola, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, and adopted six-month-old Eloise - has always had feelings for Richie and said he would always play a part in her life.
Writing in her memoir, `The Real Girl Next Door`, Denise, 40, said: "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.
"I don`t regret my relationship with him. I learned hard lessons from our journey together. My heart may have been bruised, but it was pure. Richie is a wonderful man. He came into my life when I needed him and he needed me. We`ll always have that bond."
