Heather Locklear was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on January 12 after she ingested a scary combination of alcohol and prescription pills. It’s only now that we’re finding out what’s really been going on with the actress.
“Heather has been out of control for many years,” a source tells Us Weekly. “Her drinking has caused her to fall out of many friendships.”
Locklear’s problems only worsened when she and beau of four years, Jack Wagner, called off their engagement in November. “She doesn’t get out of bed most days,” the source explains, adding that “Jack kept her on the straight and narrow, but he couldn’t keep Heather sober.”
Though Wagner, 52, “begged her to go to rehab,” it wasn’t until after their breakup that Locklear “entered a treatment program, which her family was able to keep quiet.”
Unfortunately, the former Melrose Place actress, 50, “didn’t take it seriously” and appeared visibly drunk at an L.A. Lakers game January 10
I really hope she finally gets the help she needs. She has a daughter she needs to be healthy for. So sad what alcohol can do to a person!
