Actor Tom Sizemore secretly entered a treatment facility for drug abuse following a video that surfaced showing the troubled actor using crystal methamphetamine in late 2013, The National ENQUIRER has learned.
The Saving Private Ryan star, 53, insisted that the video obtained by The ENQUIRER was shot prior to him getting clean in 2009 and said, “Those are the choices I made back then and they are coming back to haunt me.”
However, a source tells the magazine, “Tom was living a lie. He was telling everyone that he was clean and sober, when in reality, he had relapsed again.”
“Dr. Drew said that my sex problems are because of the Internet,” Sizemore told a friend on the tape. “Mine’s compounded because I grew up in a whorehouse. (Dr. Drew) told me that I have an entrenched sex addiction. He thinks the only thing that’s going to cure it is old age.”
The fact that he discussed Dr. Drew at all is solid proof that Sizemore was lying because he did not film Celebrity Rehab until 2011, which is more than two years after he said the video was shot, the magazine reports.
According to The ENQUIRER the actor also discussed his finances in 2012 and 2013, which is also after he claimed the tape was made.
“Don’t be fooled that those close to Tom were oblivious to his shenanigans. He was NOT sober for five years. The video prompted an intervention, and thankfully he got the help he needed. He was spending up to $700 a week on drugs,” the source told the magazine, on newsstands now.
Sizemore, who has twin boys, Jagger and Jayden, 9, with ex Janelle McIntire, returned to the public eye last week with an unidentified young girlfriend in L.A., and proudly showed off his Narcotics Anonymous keychain.
A representative for Sizemore confirmed that he had entered a treatment facility when contacted by The ENQUIRER.
