The ink isn’t even dry on their respective divorce papers, but that isn’t stopping Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora and actress Denise Richards from hooking up, according to several tabloid reports and Entertainment Tonight.

The alleged new It Couple has reportedly been spotted canoodling at various Hollywood hotspots like Le Cafe, where they were “very affectionate” according to a statement by restaurant manager Frank Perkins printed in Us Weekly. Another witness at the L.A. eatery tells the magazine that Sambora and Richards were “looking into each other’s eyes, laughing and giggling like crazy,” and yet another says, “They were totally together as a couple–no doubt about it.”

Us Weekly reports that Sambora and Richards have allegedly been dating for about two weeks. Sambora just split from Heather Locklear, his wife of 11 years, in February, while Richards filed divorce papers from her estranged husband, actor Charlie Sheen, last Friday. (She was also granted a restraining order against Sheen that same day.)

Ironically, Sambora and Richards are connected through their former significant others, who once starred together in the sitcom Spin City.
