Despite his successful career, Sizemore’s personal life has been tumultuous. Yahoo Entertainment details how he fought against addiction throughout his life. He was sentenced to serve jail time in 2003 for domestic violence against his then-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss. Sizemore was later sentenced to prison time in 2007 for violating his probation.
Sizemore opened up about his troubled life in his 2017 memoir By Some Miracle, I Made it Out of There.
On Monday night (February 27), CNN received an upsetting update from Lago concerning Sizemore’s condition:
“Today, doctors informed his family that there is no further hope and have recommended end of life decision,” Lago said. “The family is now deciding end of life matters and a further statement will be issued on Wednesday.”
Lago’s statement continued:
“We are asking for privacy for his family during this difficult time and they wish to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of support, and prayers that have been received. This has been a difficult time for them.”
