Heather Locklear Drinking Depressed


Heather Locklear is NOT in a “downward spiral,” despite a mean-spirited and false tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to Star, friends and family of the allegedly “broke and alone” actress fear she’s been drowning her sorrows with alcohol since splitting from boyfriend Marc Mani in May. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Heather drinks heavily to cope with pain, but that makes her bloated and pack on the pounds, which of course depresses her even more.” The magazine’s dubious insider adds, “She appears run-down and zoned out all the time. Everyone is really worried about her.”

The outlet’s seemingly manufactured insider also alleges Locklear is having money troubles due to lack of work and she’s allegedly “humiliated because the only roles she can get are in obscure TV movies.” “She’s nothing like the fun, sassy Heather people know and love,” contends the magazine’s supposed source. “Perhaps the best thing she could do is go back to rehab.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the actress, who assures us she’s doing fine and certainly isn’t experiencing any sort of “downward spiral.” We’re further told the outlet’s allegations about depression and financial problems are “not true.”

Of course, this sensationalized story is coming from Star, the same tabloid that Gossip Cop recently corrected for falsely claiming Locklear was in a feud with daughter Ava Sambora because she’s supposedly “jealous” of her modeling career. There was no truth to that ridiculous story, and the same goes for the magazine’s latest one about the actress.
