TMZ is reporting that on August 22nd, a few weeks before striking a plea deal in his child porn case, Mark cut both of his wrists in his bedroom in his Los Angeles area home. It's been said that his roommate found him bleeding and called paramedics. 

"Paramedics rushed to the home where they treated Mark, put him in an ambulance and took him to the hospital."

TMZ are also saying that Mark was taken for psychiatric evaluation, and later, was taken to rehab for psychological issues. 

However, his lawyer insists any rumour of a suicide attempt isn't true.

"Mark is physically fine and Mark is spending time atoning and working on himself." 

Earlier this month, the star changed his earlier not-guilty plea to guilty. 

The investigation saw more than 50,000 inappropriate images of child porn found on his personal computer. His sentence has yet to be decided.

His sentence has yet to be decided, but it's looking like he could be serving between 4 and 7 years behind bars.
