33 of 148: Former 'Malcolm in the Middle' star Frankie Muniz announced on Oct. 22, 2011 that he and and his girlfriend, Elycia Marie Turnbow, are engaged after four years together.

The two made headlines the previous February when it was reported that they were involved in an alleged violent confrontation.

A February 11 police report stated that Muniz and Turnbow, a publicist, had argued about 'prior relationships' and that Muniz 'grabbed a gun and held it to his head, possibly with the intent of committing suicide.' The actor's spokesperson said the incident had 'escalated beyond a point that it needed to be' and that Muniz was not suicidal and had handed over the weapon to authorities.

The former child star took a hiatus from the acting world to become a race car driver and now lives in Arizona and plays drums for the band You Hang Up. Muniz made a brief acting comeback in 2010, providing a voice for a character in the animated feature 'The Legend of Secret Pass.'
