Locklear's Racy Discovery May Have Led to Divorce
February 8, 2006

There are three little words that may have blown Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora's 11-year marriage to bits: you've got mail!

People Magazine's JD Heyman told us that Heather discovered an e-mail containing racy and provocative pictures that was sent to Richie by a woman who is close to the couple.

"What we do know that this woman has been a topic of conversation," Heyman revealed. And he added, "This had been a sore spot for the couple before."

But Richie's camp said he is just as upset about the pictures as Heather. According to Sambora insiders, "Nothing ever happened. He never asked for the pictures."

People reports that Heather and Richie's marriage was already going through a rough patch. And for Heather, the e-mail was the last straw that led her to file for divorce.

Heather now joins good friend Denise Richards in the "Ex Wives Club." Denise is moving on now that she and Charlie Sheen are going full speed ahead with their divorce. In fact, the former couple is hoping that new legal maneuvering will keep their divorce proceedings out of the public eye.

"Extra" has the newly filed court papers in which Charlie is asking for a new judge. This could be a step toward getting the case heard privately.

In other couples news, it was a close call at LAX! But not between two planes -- Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson had a near reunion. The exes arrived minutes apart at the Los Angeles International Airport, barely missing each other as they both headed to New York.

Also in the Big Apple was a newly attached Halle Berry, who isn't hiding her new hunk anymore. The beautiful Berry and her underwear model beau Gabriel Aubrey went public with their romance at the opening of the new Versace store!
