In a new twist on celeb hookups and breakups, Denise Richards and Richie Sambora have announced that they split -- two months ago! They're supposed to tell us this stuff!!

Denise's rep told In Touch that the couple didn't want to make it public, "because they lived through public divorces and it was very painful."

Hmm ... pain. Wonder what Heather thinks about the pain?
