Locklear, 55, has done several stints in rehab to fight her issues with drug, alcohol, depression and anxiety.

As Radar exclusively reported on Jan. 2, the ex-Melrose Place actress checked into rehab after she suffered a major breakdown over the holidays.

“When she came in, she was drunk and on pills, crying and screaming,” a source at the Cliffside Malibu Rehab Center dished to Radar. “She had to be helped because she was so f****d up!’

Locklear was put in detox so staffers could help rid her system of the potentially deadly cocktail of alcohol and prescription medication.

Heather’s in a bad place again,” the source said. “Hopefully, this time she’ll get the help she needs.”
