We broke the story ... Oscar voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility in California for substance abuse issues a few weeks ago. 

Oscar has told friends he does not believe he hit bottom, but checked himself into rehab before things got totally out of control. 

As one source put it ... Oscar has had fidelity issues and it seems to correlate with substance abuse ... and that's a matter he's dealing with in rehab.

Usher

Sex Tape for Sale

3/14/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A sex tape featuring Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, is being hocked around town ... TMZ has learned.

Usher
TMZ was approached several days ago by someone claiming to have the sex tape. The person sent us a short video and two photos.  We'll keep this PG-13 and just say ... the people in the video are both givers.

The video and photos are clear -- it's Usher and Tameka.

Sources close to Usher -- without specifically admitting the existence of a sex tape -- tell us they believe this video could have been among the things Usher had stolen out of his car back in December 2009. Usher reported more than $1,000,000 worth of jewelry and electronics taken -- including two laptop computers.

A rep for Usher had no comment. 

UPDATE: Foster released a statement to TheYBF.com ... saying, "Would I sanction a sextape being out? Absolutely not. I am a mother and entrepreneur. Sex tapes or pornography would not be my lane. I have no desire to be seen in that way."

Frankie Muniz

I Wasn't Suicidal

2/15/2011 5:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Frankie Muniz claims a gun "played no part" during a domestic incident in Arizona with his girlfriend a few days ago -- despite the story she told police -- and Frankie insists he was not suicidal.

0215_frankie_gf_EX_Getty_01

Frankie's rep just released a statement saying, "Frankie and Elycia had an argument a few days ago.  The police were called to the residence."

The statement continues, "A gun played no part in the argument and was voluntarily given to the police for safekeeping.  There were no bruises and neither left the residence. He was not suicidal.  She was not assaulted."

The statement doesn't sync up with the stories both Frankie and Elycia told police on the night of the incident. According to the police report obtained by TMZ -- Elycia claimed Frankie held the gun to his head and roughed her up. Frankie told police he grabbed a gun case and insisted his gun wasn't loaded ... when in fact, it was.

Frankie's rep adds that the couple is still together and are "moving forward with their lives and with their relationship."

Frankie Muniz' Girlfriend:

He Put a Gun to His Head

2/15/2011 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Frankie Muniz put a gun to his head and punched his girlfriend during a nuclear domestic argument Friday night ... this according to the woman.

Elycia Turnbow

TMZ obtained a police report filed in Phoenix, AZ last Friday.  According to the report, Muniz and his girlfriend, Elycia Turnbow, were arguing in their home about "prior relationships."  Elycia told cops, Frankie "grabbed a gun and held it to his head, possibly with the intent of committing suicide."

0215_frankie_doc_launch_quote

Elycia says she became worried and called one of Frankie's bandmates to take him to the hospital.

Frankie tells a different story, claiming Elycia was screaming and yelling at him when he "fell and hit his head."  Muniz says that's why he went to the hospital.  Muniz denied putting a gun to his head, but did say, "I grabbed the case, but not the gun ... it isn't even loaded."

In fact ... the cops did find the gun and it was loaded.

Muniz was released a short time later, went home, and just after 10PM the same night, things exploded back at the house.  According to the police report, Elycia says, Frankie "punched her in the back of the head, and threw her into a wall while in the downstairs bedroom."

Muniz denied punching Elycia, telling cops, "I love her too much.  She is the woman I want to marry."

Muniz told cops ...  what actually happened was that he was sleeping but awakened "by Elycia yelling at him and hitting him in the face."  Muniz said he was defending himself when "Elycia fell to the ground and started to kick the bedroom door."

Cops say in the report ... there were no visible injuries.

The handgun was impounded and both Frankie and Elycia were warned they'd both go to jail if things got out of control again.
