Heather Locklear has returned to a rehab facility for an expected 90-day stay, according to RadarOnline — just two weeks after a meltdown that landed her in the loony bin — and pals fear latest troubles were fueled by her fear that she’s facing serious jail time!
The “Melrose Place” mess was committed to a psych ward outside Los Angeles on Nov. 18 after she allegedly physically attacked fiancé Chris Heisser for the third time this year!
In June, the former “Dynasty” diva was sent to a similar psych ward after allegedly punching Chris in the face.
The troubled actress, who’s done multiple rehab stints for booze and prescriptions pills, has pleaded not guilty to seven battery charges and one count of resisting arrest related to two 2018 outbursts in which she allegedly attacked a cop and a paramedic — and now faces up to eight years behind bars!
“Heather is terrified,” a source exclusively spilled to The National ENQUIRER. “Her attorneys are trying to work out a deal for her to avoid jail time, but she knows the deck is stacked against her. She’s in full freak-out mode!”
