It's official, Transformers star Shia Labeouf is finally getting some much needed treatment for alcohol addiction after being arrested in New York last week. Labeouf was arrested on accounts of being disruptive and verbally abusive to cast members at the broadway show. He is not going to rehab, but has volunteered to get the help he so desperately needs, outside of a rehabilitation centre.
Good thing too, because this is not the first time Labeouf has been caught acting in a deviant manner. He previously was seen walking away in the middle of an interview, and turning up to the [Nymphomaniac: Volume I](movie:214201) movie premiere with a paper bag over his head.
Does anyone else wonder, if he doesn't want to be famous then why does he keep making movies?
So what do you think, should we sympathize with him a bit now that we know he's having alcohol problems, or is he really just an asshole, and using that as an excuse?
