AceShowbiz - Heather Locklear finally resurfaced in public for the first time since it was reported in late last month that she had checked out of rehab facility. The "Melrose Place" alum was spotted heading for lunch with a girl friend in Los Angeles on Thursday, June 27.
In a photo that circulated online, Heather seemed to be in good spirits as she was photographed smiling ear to ear while getting out of her car. The blonde actress was seen wearing a white sheer top which she combined with blue jeans, beige platform sandals and several accessories, including large hoop earrings. Heather additionally brought a summer bag to complete her style.
Back in May, it was reported that Heather had been staying in an in-patient facility for two weeks amid fears of her well being. While one source said that it stemmed from a "screaming match" with her boyfriend Chris Heisser, another insider noted that Heather continuing "to drink and abuse people around her" was the cause of it. Her daughter, Ava, was said to be in a "horrible" state due to the issue.
Her latest rehab stint marked her fourth time in less than two years. She first checked into a treatment facility in March 2018 after getting arrested for felony domestic violence against her boyfriend. Three months later, Heather once again checked into rehab for treatment of alcohol abuse and mental health issues. Prior to that, she was reportedly handcuffed for punching a deputy and kicking an EMT officer.
Later in November, she was put on a 5150 psychiatric hold after she assaulted her boyfriend Chris. It was said that doctors determined that the actress needed additional treatment and further evaluations that would require more time. She returned to rehab in early December last year, but checked out near the end of the month to spend holiday with her family.
