Is Bon Jovi finally firing Ritchie Sambora?

by Mark Cartwright

Breaking rumors are that things are going downhill in the hopes for a Bon Jovi\Ritchie Sambora reconciliation.  Rumors are now flying that Richie Sambora has been fired from the band.  Of course, we've seen things like this play out before.  When there's so much money involved, guys who HATE each other will sue everybody and their mother, just so they can rightfully take their spot on stage and collect their pay check.  And with Sambora reportedly making $2,000,000 a week to sit on the couch, the band has decided to move on without him permanently.  The final blow may have been when Jon Bon Jovi said in a recent interview that Sambora was easy to replace, saying it was not like U2 losing The Edge.

Sambora then sent Bon Jovi an email simply saying, "Hire the Edge." 

From this point on it's a good guess that this is going to make a couple of law firms very busy, and wealthy.

There is no official comment from either side as of yet.
