Amid her battle with addiction, Heather Locklear is also mourning the loss of a dear friend. As you might know, the actress has been dealing with a lot this year, and it looks like she is at least ready to open up in front of her followers.
Locklear took to her Instagram account to post an emotional message earlier today.
‘Addiction is ferocious and will try to take you down. Recovery’s the best revenge. Be kind to everybody you meet, your light just might change their path. Rest In Peace beautiful Josh. You touched my [heart emoji],’ the woman wrote, getting candid about her own fight with addiction and the loss of her friend.
Despite not mentioning who exactly Josh was or why he lost his life, the post was very personal.
Aside from being a tribute to her dead pal, it was a look into Heather’s own thoughts while dealing with addiction.
It seems like she is going through a really dark time but is determined to come out victorious.
The star has been involved in a number of scandals this past year and they involved the police.
Following a 911 call that said she was out of control and threatening to kill herself, the authorities showed up to her house.
That is when Locklear reportedly attacked an officer as well as the emergency personnel that came to take her to the hospital.
She ended up being arrested on battery charges.
After being released, multiple reports claimed she once again sought treatment for her alcohol addiction.
And that was not even the first time she got in trouble with the law!
Back in February, she was arrested on a domestic violence charge against her boyfriend, Chris Heisser.
They were apparently having a really bad fight while she was intoxicated and Heather became violent.
In March, People reported she went to rehab.
‘Heather is in treatment for addiction. Everyone hopes she gets well, that she gets better,’ one insider told the outlet at the time.
