Shia LaBeouf

Books it For Alcohol Treatment

breaking news

0701_Shia-LaBeouf_aa_books_x17Shia LaBeouf showed strong signs today he's getting help for some kind of substance abuse issue in the wake of his string of bizarre meltdowns.

Shia was in the L.A. area ... clutching an Alcoholics Anonymous book.

We don't know if Shia is just reading up or taking more formal action ... but it would seem there's a connection to his arrest last week after causing a scene at Studio 54 in NYC.  As we reported, there have been other -- apparently alcohol-fueled incidents -- at a strip club in New York a week earlier and at a restaurant in L.A. a month ago.

We've reached out for comment about the photos ... so far no word back.

Why is it cool to wear a T-shirt displaying a communist leader? Communist regimes during the twentieth century are responsible for mass killings with an estimated death toll numbering between 85 to 100 million. If he were wearing a shirt with a Nazi, on it there would be (understandably) a huge outcry.

Shia is smart. I know Im going to get hate on this comment, but he is extremely smart. I have watched his antics over the last few years. I think that he absolutely shouldn't drink because he becomes extremely aggressive, but I think he's showing us how society works . He sits with a paper bag on his head like a monkey and we all show up. Whats more clever than to show society what we want. A complete and utter breakdown. Its what we are looking for and want.
The guy at that restaurant that sold that peeing story, hopefully, goes out of business. I encourage people to boycott any business that jumps on the bandwagon. Shameless publicity at the expense of another human. Also, we are seeing what TMZ wants us to. That hat he was wearing when he got off the plane was the same hat that he was supposedly chasing that guy for. That guy may have taken it off his head and Shia tried to get it back. They spin it.
For now, I want to see what happens. Talented and funny. I hope we find out whats really going on soon.

The case below the book is obviously a set of CD's or tapes. Looks a lot like the Alcoholics Anonymous CD's (case) sold on Amazon.
