“I wanted to send her flowers or invite her to something…anything just to talk to her.” Eventually, the pair connected, and Locklear agreed to date the bad boy.
In the early 80s, she was linked to a number of Hollywood men, including Scott Baio, Tom Cruise, and Mark Harmon.
While couples often both together decide to get a divorce, Sambora heard the news from a reporter just minutes before he was scheduled to perform with Bon Jovi.
Richie dismissed the reporter’s question as yet another rumor manufactured by the press.
“He worships me.” But such obsessions don’t last, despite the young Locklear’s assertion that “I’ve only thought of getting married once.People reported, “Richie told one friend that if his marriage was on the rocks, it looked like he was the last to know.” So what was it that caused the breakdown between Locklear and Sambora?Though Locklear had already given birth to their daughter Ava in 1997, it seemed that Sambora wasn’t content with just one child.A friend of his shared,“He’d sown some wild oats in his day,” but when he met Locklear, he put those days behind him, and became utterly devoted to his family, even flying home for a day just to support his young daughter. Despite liking rockstars, Sambora could not have been more different than her first husband, Tommy Lee.The two even had a rockstar beginning, meeting backstage at an REO Speedwagon concert.
