According to a report from RumorFix.com, Richie Sambora has been fired from Bon Jovi. Sambora, who backed off the band’s current world tour after the band’s first 21 shows, has traded barbs back and forth about why he’s off the road — but neither he nor Jon Bon Jovi would elaborate. Bon Jovi has consistently cited Sambora’s having “personal issues” as the reason — much to Sambora’s annoyance. An unnamed source said that Sambora and Bon Jovi have irreconcilable differences, stating, “Richie wants to go back on stage — that’s his first love. He’s really upset over the news.”

According to the report, in addition to his share of songwriting royalties, Sambora was earning “$2 million a month and 20 percent of the profits after each show.” His live replacement, Philip ‘Phil X’ Xenidis is reportedly bringing home up to $10,000 a month covering for him on tour.
