It was only a matter of time before the rehab news hit. After his arrest last Thursday night and all of the subsequent craziness that was reported on Friday, Shia LaBeouf has checked into “a celebrity-frequented treatment facility in Hollywood,” according to the sleuths at X17 Online. That would seem like the logical next step for a guy who was handcuffed after disrupting a Broadway performance of Cabaret by shouting, swearing and slapping ass, and also spent some time chasing a homeless man around for his bag of McDonald’s. But seriously, who among us hasn’t been in that situation before?
We followed the actor from his Hollywood Hills home, just an hour ago, to a private facility where other stars have sought treatment — driven by someone believed to be from the rehab facility. When the car arrived at the gated drive to the center, a nurse and security guard were there to great Shia. In fact, earlier in the day when we spotted Shia in his driveway, we noticed his was carrying the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Blue Book.
Our photographer tells us: “Shia was nervous; he didn’t look good all morning. He was looking down and wasn’t even talking to his driver. It looked like he didn’t want to do it, but he knew he had to.” (Via X17 Online)
Maybe he doesn’t want to be there because this specific rehab center plays only Transformers movies. God knows that would scare most men right back into a bottle. But seriously, get help, LaBeouf. We’re all pulling for you to bounce back and date Amanda Bynes.
