Sobered up Heather Locklear has swapped her addictions to booze and pills for a new obsession — shopping!
“While Heather was in rehab, she was filling her closet,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “She ordered up a storm online — and just in time for when she returned home. Let’s hope it’s not a new problem that affects her sobriety.”
The former Melrose Place star, 56, completed at least her seventh stint in rehab on April 29, insiders said.
As Radar reported, Locklear most recently spent two months in treatment for alcohol addiction after battering fiancé Chris Heisser at her posh home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., on Feb. 25.
When police responded to Heisser’s call for help, Locklear turned her rage on them. The booze-fueled meltdown ended with the actress jailed for domestic violence and assault. Heisser was later busted for DUI.
But train-wreck Locklear — who also did rehab stints in 2008 and 2010 and was admitted to a psych ward in 2012 — and Heisser seem to be back on track.
The former Dynasty star was spotted knocking back nonalcoholic mocktails with Heisser at Mexican restaurant Los Agaves in Westlake Village, Calif., on May 5.
“She seemed happy, and more comfortable with herself than she did before,” said an eyewitness.
The once punch-drunk lovebirds also had a movie date night on May 4 in Los Angeles.
“They’re finally going out more,” dished another source. “In the past, they would hole up in the house, so this could be a great new start for them.”
Locklear initially told police her brawl with Heisser started after he “lied to her” and she threw a can of Red Bull at him. The blond, blue-eyed former pinup also claimed Heisser tried to “choke” her.
“At one point Locklear screamed, ‘Heisser tried to kill me. He’s a felon! Let me the f*** go,’”according to a search warrant.
The actress also lashed out at the cops , allegedly attempting to push one deputy out of the doorway and screaming, “Get the f*** out of my house!”
She also allegedly kicked two deputies while handcuffed. As a result of her “erratic, aggressive behavior toward law enforcement,” cops later checked her house for a gun, but came up empty-handed.
Locklear was a no-show for a court hearing on April 12, but her attorneys entered not guilty pleas on her behalf.
She’s now been ordered by the court to appear for a pretrial conference on June 7.
