Tom Sizemore: Dumped by Manager Over Arrest & Drug Claims

Breaking News

Thursday 7:21 AM PT -- A rep for Tom tells TMZ ... the ex-manager was actually fired cause he stole more than $86k from the actor. The rep also says Tom's hired an attorney to go after the money .... plus residuals he's owed. 

Tom Sizemore's manager is jumping ship on the heels of the actor's arrest this week for domestic violence.

Charles Lago blames Sizemore's continued "violence against other individuals" for the parting of ways and says his company, DTLA Entertainment Group, couldn't continue repping him in "good conscience." Lago had managed Sizemore for 7 years.

TMZ broke the story ... Sizemore was arrested Tuesday for allegedly beating up his girlfriend.

Lago also blames allegations of Sizemore's drug abuse, and finds it funny Tom would accuse DTLA of stealing from him ... since he's the one who owes them $22k.
