Actress Heather Locklear posted for the first time on social media on Saturday after disappearing on April 13. The star has been dealing with some personal challenges.


She’s been arrested this year and is currently in a rehabilitation center. Sources have said that she’s not coping well with being in the center and harasses her boyfriend.

Heather Locklear, 56, has been having an awful year. In February she was arrested after an alleged confrontation with her boyfriend, Chris Heisser, 56.

The former “Melrose Place” star then allegedly attacked officers who were responding to the incident. She’s been in rehab for about a month and posted for the first time in four months on Instagram.

She captioned the image, “Sun shining day.” The actress’s most recent arrest that resulted in her rehabilitation occurred on June 24.

Locklear was arrested after allegedly drinking a bottle of tequila and crashing her Porsche into a pylon on the grounds of her California mansion. The star then "attacked the cops when they arrived to calm her down" and was arrested and booked into Ventura County Jail on police battery charges.

She was released the next morning but was rushed to a hospital a little over six hours later after allegedly taking an overdose. The actress spent 14 days at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles on a 5250 psychiatric hold.


She was released and taken to a residential rehab center to get help. A week before that, she was cuffed and taken to hospital after choking her mother Diane, 85, and threatening to shoot herself.

After being released from the hospital on June 19, Locklear allegedly checked into a detox center. However, she checked herself out again after completing just two days of the five-day program.

Locklear allegedly attacked a paramedic during her most recent run-in with the law. The EMT has reportedly hired personal injury lawyer Kevin Flahavan to represent her as she’s suing the actress.


She was said to have suffered injuries to her head and neck during the incident. The paramedic, who has been assigned desk work for the moment, wants money for medical bills, pain and suffering and for emotional abuse.

A source close to Heisser shared that “nothing has changed” for the actress. She apparently calls her boyfriend three times a day, often screaming at him all the way from rehab as she struggles to cope with being in the center.

Locklear is set to return court on August 30.
