Back in early July, the troubled actress was spotted behaving erratically and walking precariously along a wall in Malibu while flip-flops. At the time, Locklear was reportedly dropped off a medical building by Heisser, who waited for her in a nearby parking lot. When she emerged later, she ignored her fiancé and began acting strangely.

It appeared that Locklear was talking to herself then she sat down to read a journal before taking off in a sprint across a parking lot and took a dangerous walk across the wall while bracing herself against pillars.

"She was acting very erratically and talking emphatically, but there was no one else there," an insider told While noting it did not appear that the actress was on the phone, the source noted, "she was 100 percent talking to herself."

Moreover, the last decade for Locklear has been marred in arrests and numerous hospitalizations, which landed the actress in rehab more than 20 times for pills, alcohol and mental health concerns.

The insider noted that "therapy has saved her life."
