In predictable yet slightly unpredictable news, Shia LaBeouf has reportedly checked into rehab. What? Already? I know, right? I mean, it’s actually a really good thing, but I expected another 5 days of crazy before the first rehab check in.
So, to the news of rehab, I say good for you Shia. Good for you.
Given his antics over the weekend, you may be wondering what kind of rehab we’re talking about here. Well, according to x17online, it’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
After following him from his Hollywood Hills home, where he was seen holding a Big Blue Book (Alcoholics Anonymous), to a private rehab clinic that is frequently used by celebs, they describe Shia as looking nervous and generally unwell. Basically, he wasn’t exactly thrilled to be going, but off he went.
As you know, the actor took part in shenanigans o’plenty this weekend in New York and was ultimately charged with disorderly conduct, as well as harassment and criminal trespass. I honestly couldn’t keep up with the goings on in Shia-land. It seemed like everywhere I looked he was chasing homeless people, fighting, or terrorizing Cabaret goers.
Now, it’s not like this is the only time Shia has caused trouble, but it’s the first real craziness in recent years. In 2005, he was arrested for assault and in 2007 he wouldn’t leave a Walgreens in Chicago and was then arrested for trespassing, because yup, that’s what happens.
And that’s not counting the weird plagiarism twitter ridiculousness or that time he had a paper bag on his head. I mean, there’s definitely been some strange behavior.
So, let’s hope Shia actually takes this rehab thing seriously and gets the help he needs.
