Heather And Richie Are Divorced
Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora are officially divorced! Lawyers for both Richie and Heather met with a judge on Wednesday to finalize the divorce settlement, a source says. The couple were married for 11 years and have a 9-year-old daughter, Ava Elizabeth. "This has been an unbelievably difficult year for Heather. It's a huge relief for her that this part of her life has come to a close," says a friend of Heather's. Heather, 45, filed for divorce from Richie, 47, in February 2006. A month later, he filed papers seeking joint custody and asking to have the terms of a prenuptial agreement enforced. Heather has been "spending time with Ava, her family and friends, and just keeping it low-key," says her pal. Heather who was linked to David Spade since the split and is now rumored to be dating her former Melrose Place costar Jack Wagner, remains "on good terms" with Richie. Richie is dating Denise Richards the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen. Denise and Richie had their first public outing about a year ago.
