Yes guys, Shia LaBeouf is getting treatment for alcohol addiction, but no he’s not going to rehab.
Rumors starting swirling about what Shia was up to after he got kicked out of a performance of Cabaret last week. Was he going to continue down the path he was on? Was he seeking help? Was rehab the only option?
Well now we know what he’s up to. His reps released this official statement to the press yesterday.
“Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction. He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery.” Good job Shia.
Honestly, I feel like I can’t talk shit about him right now. He’s seeking help and I respect that. The actor was even spotted going to an AA meeting in Los Angeles this morning, so clearly he’s already one step ahead. Launch the gallery to check out the photos from after the meeting and see if you notice a difference in her demeanor.
