After making a trip to Nashville together to enjoy the 2012 CMT Awards, Denise Richards and Richie Sambora ended up packing up to go home separately.

According to a report put out by Celebuzz on Monday (June 11), the "Wild Things" actress was set to accompany her Bon Jovi rocker beau to the annual country gathering as he was set to take the stage as one of the night's presenters. However, after a huge argument the 52-year-old ditched his presenting duties and ended up catching a solo flight back to Los Angeles, leaving the 41-year-old beauty along on the red carpet.

While showing off her gorgeous look at the star-studded event, Miss Richards reportedly shrugged off her boyfriend's absence after telling press that her makeup artist was filling in for the night. As for Academy sources, it looks like no one was told a straight answer as to why Richie was leaving so quickly.

One source says that the rocker allegedly said he was sick and needed to leave, while another was told he had a personal issue to take care of with his daughter back home.

Regardless of his reasoning, an insider dished that although this is the couple's second breakup, this one may be for good adding, “It’s over, they had an epic argument in Nashville and Denise told Richie she couldn’t continue the relationship any longer.”

Another factor that may be adding to fuel to the fire is Denise's ex Charlie Sheen, who has recently not been holding back his feelings for his ex-wife.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the former "Two and a Half Men" star dished that he wouldn't be opposed to having sex with the beautiful the brunette beauty again saying, “She still looks f**king great,” adding, “Do I want to? Yeah! Does she? Don’t know.”
