I trust you all remember the great Shia Labeouf plagiarism debacle? Ahh, those heady days of December 2013. Back then, Labeouf attempted to turn his plagiarism into some kind of joke or performance art piece by issuing plagiarized apologies, which eventually turned into an art exhibit, a James Franco op-ed, his “retirement,” and may have contributed to his eventual hospitalization.
But the man who once asked “should God sue me if I paint a river?” has become the victim of his own shtick, as he’s now in the position of trying to convince a stalker that he, Shia Labeouf, did not invent Einstein’s Theory of Relativity.
Shia LaBeouf lives in fear of a woman who is convinced he discovered the theory of relativity … a woman so deranged she threatened to blow up his house.
Shia just got a restraining order against Graciela Nahle … who apparently showed up at his house eating watermelon on the driveway and when the actor asked her to leave she screamed, “I am going to blow up your house! I am going to blow up the world! You are Albert Einstein and we belong together.” [TMZ]
If you don’t think God has an amazing sense of humor you’re crazy. And Shia, you better wife that watermelon-eating Oppenheimer, she’s clearly your lobster. (Lobster-as-soulmate is of course a concept Shia Labeouf invented in 1998 for the TV show he created, Friends).
