richie sambora loves heather locklear gi Richie Sambora: I still love ex Heather Locklear

Bon Jovi rocker Richie Sambora is still in love with Heather Locklear, his ex-wife and the mother of his child, Ava Sambora.

“Time does heal old wounds,” Sambora told People while attending the Kentucky Derby on Saturday (May 3). “I mean, I still love Heather and I know she loves me. She’s the mother of my child, man. What can you say?”

Married in 1994 in Paris, Sambora and Locklear remained together for more than a decade, finally getting a divorce due to irreconcilable differences in 2007. Their only daughter, Ava, is now 16. 

“She and I are close and have a candid relationship,” Sambora said of his teen daughter.

Does all of this mean that Sambora and Locklear — an actress famous for soapy roles on “Melrose Place,” “Dynasty” and more — might get back together? Or are they incredibly friendly exes?
