Booze-addled Heather Locklear secretly checked into rehab — for the SIXTH time — over the holidays, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal. The Dynasty star’s latest lover, Chris Heisser, dragged her into detox in a last-ditch bid to get her sober, according to insiders. “Chris was talking to Heather nonstop about getting into rehab, and he helped her get there,” snitched a source. “They chose a place outside of Los Angeles, and told very few people. They just wanted to get Heather help to start the new year the right way ... sober!” Click through Radar's gallery for more on the bombshell story.

Heisser, 56, is the same jailbird boyfriend who got into a “knock-down, drag-out brawl” with the actress just weeks before she crashed her Porsche on Sept. 14 and broke her collarbone.

Locklear, 56, returned to her Westlake Village, Calif., home in mid-December, but remains in rehab, according to insiders. Sadly, it’s the actress' sixth attempt at drying out — and the end of the year often sends her into a tailspin.

She did rehab stints in 2008 and 2010, and was admitted to a psych ward in 2012 when her sister called 911 from Heather’s home after she reportedly downed a cocktail of pills and booze.
