Nikki Sixx seems to have found someone to “Kickstart His Heart” after his recent breakup from Kat Von D — Denise Richards.
After rumors of a romance between the Motley Crue bassist and Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife began to circulate, the dating news was confirmed by the 39-year-old beauty.
“[Nikki] has been my neighbor for years,” Denise told Andy Cohen, in an interview on Bravo’s “Watch What’s Happening Now” on Thursday. “We’ve gone on a couple of dates.”
Though both stars are accustomed to the challenges of high-profile relationships, Denise said the pressure of a public wooing throws a kink in the usually organic process.
“That’s what’s hard when it’s out there,” she told Andy. “You want, — if anything’s gonna develop — it to develop on its own. The God’s honest truth is we’re taking it very slowly.
“He’s a nice, very lovely person,” she added, while appearing flustered. “And — I’m sweating!”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Nikki, 52, was most recently linked to “LA Ink’s” Kat Von D (who recently dated Sandra Bullock’s ex, Jesse James), and has two prior marriages –both to Playboy models.
Denise has two daughters from her prior marriage to Charlie Sheen, and was most recently linked with Bon Jovi rocker, Richie Sambora.
