Shia LaBeouf

Latest Skywriting Stunt Cost $25,000

's not pinching pennies now that he's retired -- TMZ has learned, his latest skywriting stunt (commissioning a fleet of planes to write "STOP CREATING" in giant letters above L.A.) cost him 25,000 smackaroos.

A rep for the skywriting company Skytypers tells us, they were contacted by Shia's people Friday morning ... shortly after Shia publicly announced his retirement from "public life" in the wake of his plagiarism scandal.



The rep says Skytypers dispatched 5 planes for the job, each flying wing-to-wing as they emitted puffs of smoke to spell out "STOP CREATING" above Angel City.

Fun fact: each message stretches 5 miles in the sky, but they're only legible for about 7 minutes ... so the message had to be re-puffed 18 times.

It wasn't Shia's first bitter sky message ... earlier this week Shia hired a bunch of planes to write out "I am sorry Daniel Clowes" ... referencing the graphic novel he plagiarized for his recent short film "HowardCantour.com."

Okay, so someone needs to tell him, that the whole world is not watching and judging him. Stuff happens, get over it. It's only as bad as he makes it. He is embarrassed , it's understandable. But, his life is so much more than a few seconds that happened in the past. move on, keep your head up. and keep entertaining us. He is cute, and i would love to see him do great things.
