"It's completely untrue," he insisted, adding that he had Valentine's Day plans with his wife.
Nevertheless, the "Spin City" actress had already set the legal wheels in motion, and her spokeswoman, CeCe York, was spreading the word.
"After 10 years of marriage, Heather Locklear has filed for divorce from Richie Sambora," the rep said in a statement hours earlier. "This is a private matter and there will be no further comment at this time."
The message was apparently not delivered to the rocker, who has been touring recently, and he spoke with ABC shortly before a show at Washington's MCI Center.
Even when confronted with the report, which had then hit the news wires, he spoke lovingly of Locklear.
"I'm going home," said Sambora, who says that Locklear sometimes joins him when he's touring.
"Heather was just up for our anniversary and that was Dec. 15 … I was home for like two and a half weeks over Christmas, and I have a month off in March, so it's going to be good."
