Jon Bon Jovi publicly says former band mate Richie Sambora can rejoin the Bon Jovi tour any time he wishes.
A new report from Radar Online alleges that’s hardly the case, and greed is preventing the New Jersey rockers from reuniting for a Garden State tour stop this week.
Sambora left the tour in April after feuding with Bon Jovi over money and Richie’s objection to his belief that Jon was belittling him. One source says the guitar player and lead singer are fighting over money.
“It’s very apparent Jon wants to get rid of Richie,” the source says. “Jon is raking in the money. And what about the fans who want Richie back?” The source says Jon doesn’t care.
The site says the group’s lead singer, who threw his full support behind President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, is dedicated to lining his wallet for a big purchase down the road.
Jon is and has been focused on accumulating as much money as possible to accomplish his lifelong goal of buying a NFL football team. Bon Jovi took a serious look at the NY Jets years ago as a partner but now wants his own team and money is the only thing stopping him.
