Us Weekly, which reported the sighting, says the two are "quietly dating."

A source close to the pair told the magazine that Richards and Sixx "have been neighbors for years. They have a lot in common and are taking things slowly."

A witness who spotted them at Marmalade Cafe said, "Nikki was telling stories, and Denise was laughing."

E! Online reported that the two recently went out for coffee a couple of times, but a source told them "He is not her boyfriend."

Richards has two daughters with ex Charlie Sheen, and previously dated Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. Sixx has four children with ex-wives Donna D'Errico (of "Baywatch" fame) and Playboy Playmate Brandi Brant. He also dated Kat Von D from 2008 to January 2010.
