Sizemore, pictured in 2007, has been in and out of rehab several times and was arrested in 2007 and 2009 for drug-related charges
In May last year a Utah woman sued the actor for $3 million over claims he groped her during a movie set photo shoot when she was just 11.
The lawsuit says the 2003 incident, which allegedly occurred during production of the ‘Born Killers’ movie, left her with post-traumatic stress and drug and alcohol addiction.
Sizemore denied the ‘highly disturbing’ allegation when it surfaced, saying he would never inappropriately touch a child.
He called the claims surrounding the alleged incident in 2003 ‘simply false’ and said he was desperate to ‘clear my name’.
Sizemore has faced a very public battle with drug addiction and run-ins with the police.
But in May 2017 he told the DailyMail.com he was ‘fit, healthy and approaching four years sober’.
He recalled seeing his successful acting career – starring alongside the likes of Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, Woody Harrelson and Al Pacino – crumble around him, his bank balance and the trappings of fame vanish overnight.
The actor told how he hit rock bottom when forced to squat for two years in a building with no electricity or running water, whiling away the days smoking crystal meth.
The actor, pictured, revealed the shocking depths to which he plunged while consumed by cocaine, heroin and crystal meth but in May 2017 said he was ‘approaching four years sober’
Speaking in 2017 he said: ‘My life’s gotten a lot better, it’s been a real chronicle, but I’ve got a long history of substance abuse, I was in a really bad place.
‘And I’m coming up on four years sober, it was really difficult, the first two years were miserable I thought I’d never smile again.
‘Drugs are a progressive disease, if I do drugs again I go right back to where I was before, I was ineffectual, I could barely get dressed, I was hopeless.’
Over the years he has been in and out of rehab several times and was arrested in 2007 and 2009 for drug-related charges, spending 16 months in total in prison.
He was sentenced to six months in jail for beating up his former girlfriend, the one-time ‘Hollywood Madam,’ Heidi Fleiss.
The star was even caught attempting to fake a drug urine test using a prosthetic penis known as a Whizzinator.
While he seemed to get his life back on track after the show, two videos of the troubled actor smoking drugs emerged.
