 Sex tape
On August 18, 2005, approximately eight hours of celebrity sex tape starring Sizemore was published on the internet. The material has since become available on DVD.

 Substance abuse and legal problems


Sizemore, who had battled drug addiction since he was 15, was convicted in 2003 of assault and battery against his girlfriend, the former "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss. Sizemore was then sentenced to 7 months in jail and four months in drug treatment for repeatedly failing drug tests while on probation on March 25, 2005. Sizemore was caught attempting to fake the urine test using a Whizzinator. Fleiss' restraining order against him had lapsed by the time they appeared together in the third season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in 2010.

On May 8, 2007, while still on probation for a previous drug conviction, Sizemore was arrested outside the Four Points Sheraton hotel in Bakersfield, California for possession of methamphetamines. Police found what appeared to be two drug bags under 1 gram in weight of methamphetamine and three glass pipes used for inhaling methamphetamines that were coated with drug residue inside his 2004 Ford Mustang. On June 25, Sizemore was sentenced to 16 months in prison. The sentence was reduced to nine months because Sizemore already served 213 days in county jail unable to post bail. On March 27, 2009, Sizemore avoided jail-time in the above case for an alleged probation violation.

On May 28, 2009, Sizemore was arrested in Los Angeles on an outstanding warrant for drug charges. Sizemore and a friend were questioned by police and an outstanding $25,000 warrant for Sizemore was discovered. Sizemore did not have any narcotics in his possession, but was arrested on the outstanding 2007 warrant; he was later released.

Sizemore had been approached to appear in the first season of the reality television series Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, but declined. He met with Dr. Drew Pinsky about appearing in the second season, sitting in Pinsky's office for two hours, as Pinsky recounted, "sweating and completely high on drugs, talking a million miles an hour, acting like he was going to do it then deciding he didn’t want to." Sizemore ultimately decided to appear in Season 3, but did not appear in the season premiere, forcing Pinsky's colleague Bob Forrest to seek him out. Because Heidi Fleiss was also in treatment on the show that season, both she and Sizemore had to consent to appear together. While the season premiered in January 2010, Sizemore's arrival at the clinic was chronicled in the third episode, and his reunion with Fleiss was amicable. Yet, by the season's end, it was Heidi who, at their graduation ceremony, lashed out against Sizemore, taunting him that "the thought of being with would turn women gay...it really would." After they received their coins, both Tom and Heidi agreed to Sober House treatment. During a guest appearance on the fourth season of Celebrity Rehab, a healthy-looking Sizemore praised Dr. Drew and his program, stating he has been sober for fourteen months.
