Heather Locklear divorced husband Richie Sambora back in 2006, but has only recently gotten around to dropping his name.
No More Sambora
According to Popeater, Heather Locklear submitted a formal request to the court in Los Angeles to legally have the last name "Sambora" removed from her name. Once the judge approves the change, her name will legally revert to Heather Locklear.
Heather Locklear has been linked in the past couple of years to her "Melrose Place" co-star Jack Wagner. All the celebrity magazines reported how Wagner serenaded Heather Locklear a week or so ago on her 49th birthday.
Is There a Future for Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner?
Is this why Heather Locklear has finally gotten around to dropping "Sambora" from her name? Could there be a future for Locklear and Wagner?
That remains to be seen. Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner have been dating since 2007. She has one daughter, Ava, who is 12 years old. Ava is also the daughter of Locklear's ex-husband Richie Sambora.
It would certainly seem that after that many years of being divorced it is time to give up an ex-husband's name. The exceptions tend to be those who have made their professional names while married. That certainly isn't the case with Heather Locklear, since she was a star on the acting circuit long before Richie Sambora came into her life.
