Denise Richards and Richie Sambora have split - again.

The couple - who rekindled their romance last November following their break-up in 2007 - have decided once more to call time on their relationship as they think they're better off as friends.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "They had a moment a few months back when they were going to give it a go, but have decided they're better as friends."

Richards- who has three daughters, Sam, seven, and six-year-old Lola, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, and adopted six-month-old Eloise - has always had feelings for Sambora and said he would always play a part in her life.

Writing in her memoir, 'The Real Girl Next Door', Richards, 40, said: "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.

"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."
