Richie Sambora

Livin' On a Prayer of ...


6/29/2013 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Never Say Goodbye Bon Jovi fans ... Richie Sambora tells TMZ, his split from Jon and the rest of his band mates is NOT forever ... probably.

As TMZ previously reported ... Sambora pulled out of Bon Jovi's current world tour for "personal issues" -- sources told us part of the reason was Jon Bon Jovi and Richie were fighting over money.

So when our photog spotted Richie out in Beverly Hills Friday -- he had to ask about the split and the reportedly less-than-stellar ticket sales as of late (some shows were reportedly cancelled due to poor numbers).

Sambora keeps his poker face on for the most part, but does gives us a tiny, nugget of hope -- the breakup might soon come to an end.

Judge for yourself.

NO shows have been cancelled, and most if not all are sold out! get your info straight. When Richies money runs our for hookers and booze, he will sign back up with the band. I just hope its in time for MetLife 7/27!!!

Richie, I hope you win your battle with alcohol. You belong with Bon Jovi, but you need to be there for the band that has made you famous and rich over all these years, and not be drunk when its time to go onstage. You are a very talented musician and I seriously doubt Jon would keep you out if he knows you are back on track and sober. You look better, act better and perform better when you are 100% you and not all liquored up. Good luck to you. We all have our demons.

If Richie cared about his fans like he keeps claiming to be, he would live up to his contract and be playing with the band. He's being a diva.

Ive been a Bon Jovi fan for more than 25 years! Ive been at their concerts.
Richie Sambora doesnt care about the fans when he can quit, not once, twice! Jon Bon Jovi and the rest of the band does care, they work their Ass's off, day and night, to continue the tour.
"They won't sleep until their dead."
Richie Sambora needs to get his head out of his Ass, pop his ego and stop feeling sorry for himself, because something didnt go his way!!!
Richie~ Stop being a quitter and really start thinking about the fans, or there might not be any Sambore fans left! "You give Love a Bad Name!" Be thankful!!!
