Just weeks before Locklear's Sunday night run-in with police, the booze-addled star checked into rehab for the sixth time, Radar exclusively reported. Weeks before her rehab stint, the famed actress "went completely psycho" on her boyfriend, Chris Heisser, 56, and "threw things at him."

Just like this past year, Locklear had a disastrous 2016 holiday season. At the time, the star checked into rehab "crying and screaming" because she was "drunk and on pills," a source at the Cliffside Malibu Rehab Center dished to Radar.

In 2016, Locklear was reportedly having jealousy issues with her own daughter, Ava. "Heather and Ava are close but since Ava's been getting noticed on the modeling scene, Heather has been very cold," an insider told Star Magazine at the time.

Earlier, in 2012, Locklear had another alleged meltdown with her former fiancé, Jack Wagner. After Wagner lunged at his wife-to-be, Locklear "caught Jack with a right hook across his face," Star reported after Wagner lunged at the Hollywood actress.

The behind-the-scenes violence left Locklear and Wagner meeting with prosecutors, Radar reported at the time. Fortunately, this time Locklear faced no charges.
