Shia LaBeouf Takes ‘First Of Many Necessary Steps Towards Recovery’ – Rep Confirms Actor Seeking Professional Help But Is NOT In Rehab

Shia LaBeouf is receiving treatment for alcohol addiction, the star’s rep has confirmed to Access Hollywood.

The 28-year-old actor voluntarily sought professional help following his recent arrest in New York City; however, the star is not in a rehab facility as previously reported.

“Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction,” the rep told Access Hollywood. “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.”

The Transformers star was arrested last Thursday after he allegedly became extremely disruptive during a performance of Cabaret at Studio 54. A few hours prior to his arrest he was also spotted getting into an argument with a homeless man.

This year has been a strange one for the Nymphomaniac star, as he also arrived on the red carpet in Berlin wearing a paper bag on his head that read, “I am not famous anymore.”

LaBeouf is due in court July 24 for his charges.
