Denise Richards has confirmed she's dating Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx, but insists they're taking the new romance "very slowly".
Reports linking the actress to the rocker surfaced this week (beg13Dec10), and U.S. TV host Andy Cohen took the opportunity to quiz the star about the story during her appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens L!ve on Thursday night (16Dec10).
When asked whether she is dating Sixx, Richards coyly replied, "What's considered dating?" before admitting she has "gone on a couple (of) dates" with the musician.
She adds, "If anything's gonna develop, you want it to develop on its own. That's the god's honest truth, we're taking it very slowly."
Richards has two children with her ex-husband Charlie Sheen and has previously dated Bon Jovi star Richie Sambora.
