According to In Touch Weekly magazine, Richards rep has just declared that the couple are calling it quits.
Richards rep tells the magazine that Denise and Richie broke up two months ago, and sources close to the actress say her and Sambora didnt want to make their split public because they lived through public divorces and it was very painful.
Although the couple has been drifting apart in the romance department, they still remain close, as Richards was there for Sambora when his dad died last month and flew across the country to be with him during the funeral.
While theres no comment from Samboras camp just yet, Richards told In Touch Weekly last Thursday (May 10) that shes in a really happy place and taking her life one day at a time.
