And they are giving it another go!
The pair dated in 2006 after their marriages fizzled, but they dropped it because of the media circus surrounding their relationship.
"Denise and Richie really never stopped loving each other," claims a source.
The two have been keeping a low profile. They stay at home watching DVDs and eating popcorn to steer clear of the public eye. And Richie has worked very hard to stay on the straight and narrow to win back Denise.
A friend adds, "Denise was impressed enough to give him a second chance."
Lots of luck!
