Heather Locklear is on a 'psychiatric hold' after breakdown

Heather Locklear is reportedly back in the hospital, after law enforcement officials were called to her residence on Sunday.

"We responded yesterday to a medical call at Ms. Locklear's home," Sgt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office told Yahoo Entertainment. "We have no additional information to provide."

According to TMZ, Locklear's therapist and lawyer determined that the former Melrose Place actress "desperately needed help," someone called 911 and she was hospitalised on a psychiatric hold. The report cited "sources with knowledge," and disputes a Daily Mail story that the trouble began with Locklear "beating up her boyfriend and throwing him out of her house," according to a family source.

Locklear's boyfriend, Chris Heisser, was with her in February, as she was charged with a felony count of domestic violence against him and three counts of misdemeanour battery against police officers who responded to an emergency call from her brother about fighting between the two.

In June, it was the Dynasty star's mother who summoned police, because, she said, her daughter was threatening to kill herself. Locklear was hospitalised at the time.

The same month, she was arrested for allegedly attacking first responders who answered a 911 call from her home. Officers responded to yet another call from Locklear's home the day after she was released from jail - this one over a suspected overdose - and she ended up back at the hospital.

Throughout this tumultuous year, Locklear has so far reportedly gone to rehab twice, in March and June. Fans were hopeful that her troubles were over when she shared a message in September that "recovery is the best revenge."
