Micheal’s struggles had been well documented, with the actor becoming addicted to cocaine back in 2004, causing him to vanish for several days on coke binges, hiding his spiralling addiction from his family and friends.

Speaking to the New Jersey Star-Ledger, Michael said: “I was playing with fire, it was just a matter of time before I got caught and my business ended up on the cover of a tabloid or I went to jail or, worse, I ended up dead.

“When I look back on it now, I don’t know how I didn’t end up in a body bag.”
