Shia LaBeouf loves his drugs and he really loves his booze, but the latter is the one that usually gets him in trouble, because the dude hits the bottle hard and when he does he likes to end up in a fight. If you ask him though, he’s just an innocent victim in all of it.
The 26-year-old actor’s most recent spat occurred in a London pub over the weekend where he supposedly got in a fight with some bargoers. LaBeouf is now saying these brawls happen just because he’s famous.
A source close to the actor told Radar: “Shia swears blind that he doesn’t court trouble, but it seems to follow him wherever he goes.”
“This time, it wasn’t his fault. He lost his temper after someone took his baseball cap and told the guy who took it how he felt! But, it’s this sort of juvenile act that can ignite his short fuse and Shia believes he is picked on by people simply because of his fame.”
The source adds: “As a celebrity he stands out of the crowd and is an easy target for pranksters. He feels he gets victimized for who he is and says that people often try to start a fight with him just for fun. He only wants to have a little downtime after a hard day of filming and wants to be treated with a little bit of respect.”
Oh boo freaking hoo. Like being a boozy, belligerent, and entitled d-bag doesn’t have anything to do with it. Me thinks it might.
