Richie, 52, and Denise, 40, started dating in 2006, following Richie's divorce from actress Heather Locklear and Denise's divorce from actor Charlie Sheen. The romance, which some labeled as a rebound relationship for the two newly divorced stars, ended after a year of dating.
Now, it looks like the twosome have decided to give their relationship another go and have been spotted on several romantic dates, including a dinner on Sunday night (Oct. 30) at a Japanese restaurant in Woodland Hills, Calif., according to RadarOnline.
A source told E! "They're very happy and are dating. They never stopped caring for each other." In fact, Denise wrote all about her relationship with Richie in her tell-all memoir 'The Real Girl Next Door,' revealing, "Richie and I shared an easiness I hadn't before had. We were able to be open, honest, and completely authentic with each other, with no judgment."
She continued, "I don't regret my relationship with him. I learned hard lessons from our journey together. My heart may have been bruised, but it was pure. Richie is a wonderful man. He came into my life when I needed him and he needed me. We'll always have that bond."
