Troubled actor Tom Sizemore is facing legal action after allegedly failing to pay child support.
Jinele MCIntire has accused the Saving Private Ryan star of leaving her to single-handedly raise their twins boys, born in 2005, and is now demanding $58,000 (£392,000) from the actor, according to legal documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month (Oct09).
MCIntire insists Sizemore has "made no attempt to see" or provide for his children, while continuing to make up to $200,000 (£133,000) for his appearances in reality TV shows Sober House and Celebrity Rehab.
She is also seeking health insurance for the children, as well as $50,000 (£33,000) for attorney's fees.
The new lawsuit adds to a growing list of Sizemore's legal woes - he was charged with spousal battery following his arrest for an alleged attack on a woman in August (09) and was found guilty of assaulting then-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss in 2003.
He was also arrested in May (09) on an outstanding warrant for drug charges.
