(Newser) – Might Heather Locklear end up under a conservatorship just like Britney Spears did? After two arrests (one in February and one in June) and other problems in recent months, TMZ and other outlets reported Monday that the 57-year-old actress had been hospitalized under an involuntary psychiatric hold over the weekend due to ongoing mental health issues. Now, sources tell Us, her loved ones are considering a conservatorship and her lawyer has consulted with Spears' conservatorship lawyers. Sources say Locklear's family believes she left her most recent stint in rehab too early, the Blast reports.

"Heather’s family feels absolutely helpless and feels this could be the only way to save her life," a source says. "She won’t stay in treatment and consistently checks out early." Spears was placed under a conservatorship after a 2008 breakdown and cannot make personal or financial decisions on her own, but Locklear's potential guardianship "would be of Heather as a person only, nothing involving her finances or estate." (An EMT is reportedly planning to sue Locklear.)
