Ex- bandmates JON BON JOVI and RICHIE SAMBORA at IT again!

After a bitter spat with Richie, Jon publicly said Sambora can return to the band at any time BUT behind the scenes it’s a whole ‘nother story.

Sambora, who was born and raised in Woodbridge, N.J., is eager to take the stage with the band  in East Rutherford, NJ BUT  not happening because Jon is the one blocking it, RadarOnline reported

“Jon won’t allow Richie to come back for that show,” the source said. “And Jon won’t even pick up the phone and talk to Sambora.

“Sambora has tried to end this feud but Jon won’t respond.”

Richie believes Jon has been trash talking him, the source said, and has asked him to stop.

“Every attempt he has made at rejoining the band has been blocked by Jon,” the source added.

As the ENQUIRER previolsu reported Sambora left the tour in April after feuding with Jon over money and Richie’s objection to his belief that Jon was belittling him.

“It’s very apparent Jon wants to get rid of Richie,” a source said. “Jon is raking in the money.

"And what about the fans who want Richie back?”

Reportedly, Jon just doesn’t care.
