It’s been a rough week for Shia LaBeouf, amidst allegations of sexual abuse by ex-girlfriend FKA twigs, the Transformers alum was fired from Don’t Worry Darling. After which he is also reportedly seeking treatment. For the unversed, Shia was reportedly in the running for starring in the upcoming movie, which Olivia Wilde is directing and starring in. When this news initially broke in September, the reason for Shia’s absence in the movie was stated as a scheduling conflict, after which he was replaced by Harry Styles. However, a new report via Variety suggests something completely different.


The American publication reported on December 24th that LaBeouf was dropped from the film after being confirmed for the role. While the shooting was not in process at that moment, sources told Variety that the Transformers alum departed due to “poor behaviour” and that his presence clashed with the film’s staffers and cast, including that on director Wilde. The report further stated that Wilde ultimately decided to fire Shia. The source deemed the Transformers fame star as “off-putting” and difficult to work with. 


After this news broke, it was reported that the 34-year-old Peanut Butter Falcon actor is planning to enter an intensive treatment facility following ex FKA twigs coming forward with allegations of sexual and emotional abuse, his lawyer confirmed. “Shia needs help and he knows that. We are actively seeking the kind of meaningful, intensive, long-term inpatient treatment that he desperately needs,” Shawn Holley, his attorney, told Variety. FKA twigs‘ lawyer also spoke out about the lawsuit in the same article. “This isn’t about Shia’s career. This is about making sure the trauma and pain inflicted on my clients and others doesn’t happen again. Shia is an admitted abuser and he needs to get meaningful help that addresses his violent behaviour,” Bryan Freedman told the outlet.
