Sambora / Locklear 24

The Rock Star Husband Is Always the Last to Know

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora appeared to have no idea that his wife, Heather Locklear , had filed divorce papers several hours after her publicist announced the news.

Sambora partied with a clatch of political operatives, including former White House spokesman Mike McCurry , in a roped-off section of Georgetown's Degrees bar after the band's Feb. 2 MCI Center show. A politico who was inside the rope tells us that the veteran rocker was chatting and drinking happily and was often approached by very friendly ladies -- but that he told them, on more than one occasion, "Sorry, I'm married."

"I honestly think he had no idea," our source said. The account sheds some light on a strange interview Sambora gave earlier that night to ABC Radio in which he adamantly denied reports of a split. Neither Sambora's publicist nor Locklear's returned our calls.
