No, but he was addicted to drugs. Louie B. Mayer supplied him with cocaine for pain, and Lionel was also addicted to morphine. This could be related to the constant pain from which he suffered. Lionel had several hip injuries as well as Arthritis in his hip, and was confined to a wheelchair from the late 30's until his death.
