Shia LaBeouf seeks treatment.
The actor recently made headlines when his ex-girlfriend, singer FKA Twigs, accused him of physical, emotional and mental abuse in a lawsuit.
The lawsuit was brought by musician – born Tahliah Debrett Barnett – on December 11, and details several alleged incidents, including the actor “recklessly” driving a car with Barnett inside, “threatening to crash unless that she did not profess her love for him, “by the costume.”
Responding to the New York Times, LaBeouf said he had “no excuses for my alcoholism or my assault, only rationalizations.”

Since then, he’s faced more issues in the form of similar accusations from singer Sia and having her name removed from Netflix’s awards consideration page.
Now it looks like the 34-year-old “Honey Boy” star is moving forward.
“Shia needs help and he knows it,” LaBeouf’s lawyer told Variety. “We are actively seeking the kind of meaningful, intensive, long-term hospital treatment he desperately needs.
LaBeouf’s past is also fraught with conflict, as he struggled with drug and alcohol addiction and suffered several blackouts after rising to fame as a young star on Disney Channel’s “Even Stevens”.

However, sources told the outlet that the streamer and even the actor himself believed the campaigns should be focused on Kirby and Ellen Burstyn.
After filing a complaint, FKA Twigs responded to his allegations on Twitter.

Barnett said on introducing herself she hoped “to help people understand that when you are under the coercive control of an abuser or in an abusive relationship with an intimate partner, leaving doesn’t seem like a safe or feasible option.”
