Before Heather Locklear was hospitalized on Jan. 12, she had a blowup fight with her ex-fiancé, Jack Wagner. The new issue of Star magazine has exclusive details on what led the 50-year-old star to her meltdown.
Days before Heather's sister called 911 for fear of Heather mixing her prescription medication with alcohol, the actress had a violent fight at her Sherman Oaks, Calif., home with Jack.
According to Star magazine, Jack, 52, drove over to Heather's home to return some of her possessions.
"A huge argument erupted as they insulted each other's families," a source told Star. "As Heather went to her car, Jack lunged at her, trying to grab or push her. Her reaction was to swing. She caught Jack with a right hook across his face, knocking him to the ground."
Jack reportedly then tried to grab Heather, but she took his dog, put it in her car and fled.
Police arrived and determined the gash on Heather's face was caused in self defense, but the source says Heather "didn't want to press charges, so she left."
In November, Heather and Jack called off their engagement after having been together since 2007.
The Melrose Place star was released from the hospital on Jan. 13. A hospital representative said about Heather, “Spirits were very good, she was calm and chit-chatty."
