Richie Sambora says he will ‘always be there’ for ex-wife Heather Locklear and their daughter Ava.
Richie Sambora is continuing to support his ex-wife, Heather Locklear.
On Thursday, the Bon Jovi guitarist told the Daily Mail that he together with a team of physicians and specialists to ensure that both Locklear—who he was married to from 1994 to 2007 and their 20-year-old daughter, Ava, were taken care of.
“I will, of course, always for the Heath and, in particular, the Ava,” Sambora, 59, told the outlet.
“I am very proud of my daughter for her calmness and strength in this difficult time,” says the musician, who also showed his support for the former “Melrose Place” star by flying a fighter pilot with Locklear initials recommended.
Earlier this month, TMZ reported that the actress voluntarily agreed to check herself into a long-term treatment center for substance abuse and mental health issues days after she was arrested.
On June 24, Locklear was arrested for battery against the police and first responders.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said they responded to a 911 call at Locklear’s home shortly after 11 a.m. Locklear appeared “heavily intoxicated” and was “fighting with other subjects in the house.”
“The responding deputy found that it was necessary to separate her from the others,” a police spokesman told Fox News at the time.
“In the process of trying to separate from her, she battered the deputy …There was no damage to the substitute. That woke up her to be arrested.”
Because of her “behaviour and the degree of intoxication,” the police called an ambulance to check on the star.
Locklear then went to allegedly kick an EMT, who tried to put her on a gurney, in the chest. She was then taken to the hospital to be examined before being taken to prison, where they spent the night before posting $ 20,000 bail.
