Heather Locklear

Now I'm Worried About MY Rolex!

0320_heather_locklear_richie_sambora_tmzHeather Locklear is a little shaken over John Mayer's lawsuit ... claiming a big time watch dealer sold him counterfeit Rolexes ... because she got a Rolex from the same dude.

Locklear's ex-hubby Richie Sambora tells TMZ ... he bought her a 1962 Rose Gold Female Presidential Rolex back in 2001, while they were married. 

Sambora -- fresh off a tour in Australia -- says the seller was none other than Bob Maron, who he described as "very knowledgeable, likable and kind." He tells TMZ, "When you order a Rolex, you expect to a real Rolex. Just like when you order a Coke, you expect and pay for the real thing! All I can tell you is ... I paid for the real thing."

Mayer certainly doesn't feel that way.  He's suing Maron for around $600K, claiming 7 of the watches he bought had counterfeit parts.  As we first reported, however, Mayer posted several years before he was actually in the market for counterfeit Rolexes.

As for Locklear ... we're told she's worried the watch might be a fake, so she's taking it to a professional to get it authenticated. Our sources say Locklear also wants to get it done to help protect anyone else who may have been swindled.

Locklear has an emotional attachment to the watch because it has "great sentimental value."

Now that's what you call a successful divorce.

Seems like Hollywood men like to save a buck on their lady's jewelry. If you bought directly from Rolex, you wouldn't have this problem.

So call rich people are 2-bit clowns for not buying directly from a Rolex dealer. Then want to sneak back and try to pawn them off later.

Ahh, the pretentiousness of owning a Rolex. All along, these celebrities were perfectly happy wearing what they felt was a fabulous watch , a testament to their extreme wealth and needing to show it off. Because that's the whole point of wearing one. Now suddenly, the knowledge that it may be fake, ooh, help, it s not as nice anymore!!! Reminds me of an old friend that was admiring my gorgeous italian leather purse. When she found out I bought it at an outdoor flea market, suddenly, she didn't think it was so nice anymore. It's all about pretentious branding .

Seems like Bob Maron has a H U G E lawsuit with defamation of character to file. Charlie Sheen has been his customer for YEARS and has nothing but praise for Mr. Maron. C'mon Bob, Sue him !!
