LOS ANGELES (November 30, 2006) — Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards are now officially single again.
Sheen and Richards’ divorce was finalized on Thursday after a lengthy separation.
A source told Access Hollywood that a marrige to rocker Richie Sambora may not be far off. Richards and Sambora (Heather Locklear’s ex) have been dating since April.
Richards filed for divorce from Sheen in March 2005 after three years of marriage.
The couple seemed to have reconciled after the birth of their second daughter, Lola, last year, but in January, they filed legal papers asking a private arbitrator to handle their divorce.
Sheen was ordered to stay at least 300 feet from his estranged wife and their daughters, 2-year-old Sam and 11-month-old Lola, except during supervised visits.
Richards alleged in court papers that Sheen pushed her, shoved her, and threatened her and her parents. The papers also include transcriptions of phone messages Richards said Sheen left in April 2005.
Sheen, 40, denied the allegations.
Denise recently made headlines when she tossed a photographer’s laptop computer off of a balcony while filming her new movie “Blonde and Blonder” in Vancouver with Pamela Anderson.
