The couple married in Paris on December 17, 1994. Ava Elizabeth, the couple’s firstborn daughter, was born on October 4, 1997. In February 2006, the couple filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. After a year, on April 11, 2007, the divorce was finalized.

A legal issue

Locklear was arrested for drunk driving in 2008, but no alcohol or narcotics were detected in her blood, leading to the conclusion that her driving abilities were harmed by the anxiety and depression medications she was taking. Iskanian, a photographer, captured the incident and sold it to TMZ.com for $27500. On the 12th of January 2012, Locklear’s sister dialed 911, believing that Locklear was in danger after consuming prescription drugs and alcohol. She was then taken to Los Robles Hospital, where she was declared safe the next day.

In February 2018, the actress was arrested for domestic violence and battery on a police officer. She was later released after paying a fine of $20,000. She was arrested in June on two misdemeanor battery charges. She was hospitalized shortly after her release from jail on June 25, 2018, due to a possible overdose.
