Shia LaBeouf Seeking “Long-Term” Treatment, His Lawyer Says
Shia LaBeouf‘s law firm states the actor “desires aid” and that they are pursuing “prolonged-time period inpatient remedy” for him, as he faces a sexual misconduct lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend FKA twigs.
In her submitting, the 32-year-old British-born musician accuses the 34-year-previous actor, her co-star in his autobiographical film Honey Boy, of sexual battery, assault and infliction of psychological distress and also alleges that he knowingly gave her a sexually transmitted illness. LaBeouf has not been charged with a criminal offense.
“Shia demands enable and he understands that,” LaBeouf’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, advised E! Information in a statement on Friday, Christmas Day. “We are actively trying to get the type of significant, intense, lengthy-expression inpatient therapy that he desperately desires.”
FKA twigs filed her lawsuit on Dec. 11 and she and the other accuser also spoke about their encounters with LaBeouf with the New York Periods. The Transformers actor advised the newspaper at the time that though “quite a few of these allegations are not true,” he has “no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations.” He said he is a “a sober member of a 12-phase application” and in treatment, and was not yet “treated” of PTSD and alcoholism.
