DRICHARDS013107_21_X17230WM.jpgBon Jovi's Richie Sambora and Denise Richards have rekindled their romance, according to Us Weekly.

The twosome have been seen going on several dates in recent weeks.

Sambora, 52, and Richards, 40, first began dating in 2006. They split back in 2007 after Richards was accused of breaking up Sambora's relationship with Heather Locklear.

A source tells the mag:

    "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 source adds that the couple is "doing great and happy."

Their reps have yet to return our requests for comment.
