Shia LaBeouf Has (Yet Another!) Meltdown
What on earth is going on with the Transformers star?
Shia LaBeouf has steadily been getting weirder and weirder, and now, he seems to have had yet another bizarre public meltdown. The 25-year-old Transformers star has already gotten into a couple of bar brawls; this time, there were no fisticuffs, but he spat water over a couple of people instead. But not just anyone: He spat water over his date and Marilyn Manson. I don’t know about you guys, but Marilyn Manson strikes me as the kind of person you do NOT want to piss off. Like I said: Weirder and weirder!
A witness told Life & Style that at a party on August 26, “Shia picked up a water bottle and shot a mouthful of water all over his seated date’s legs. Then he put more water in his mouth and started spitting it all over his tablemates, including Marilyn Manson. He seemed wasted.” Manson, to his credit, offered Shia a fist-bump to let him know that there were no hard feelings, but Shia started getting visibly angry and forced his way out of the room. His date followed him, and Life & Style’s witness says that they didn’t return. “It was completely out of control,” the witness reported. “He was so angry and physical. He was determined to get out of there.”
Shia’s rep is saying that his early departure was planned—he only intended to see one of the bands performing at the party and left after their set was over—and that his exit through the crowded room was misinterpreted. I guess spitting water like a dolphin before you leave a room is considered normal these days?
