On Monday X17online broke the news that Shia LaBeouf had begun seeking treatment at a rehab facility in Los Angeles for alcohol abuse, and on Wednesday morning the 27-year-old star attended yet another therapy session. Shia may have forgotten to zip up his fly, but we're glad that he's taking his physical and emotional health seriously!
Last Thursday the actor was arrested in New York for disorderly conduct after slapping people in the back of the head during a performance of Cabaret and getting belligerent with cops. Shia then stepped out on Tuesday in Los Angeles with a copy of the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Blue Book in his hand, and he spent three hours at a private facility the day before that.
Despite numerous run-ins with the law over the years, Shia has sought treatment for substance abuse issues in the past. Following a nasty car crash in 2008, Shia opened up to Playboy in 2009 about knowing when to get help. “I’m in AA now, too,” he told the mag at the time. “I’ve had drinks, but it has been a leveling-out process. Am I an alcoholic? I may not be. I don’t know. But I also know that in the situation I’m in, with temptations what they are, I have no room for alcohol in my life.”
His rep said in a statement yesterday evening, "[Shia] 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. Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction."
