Shia LaBeouf is NOT in rehab ... but he IS getting treatment for alcohol addiction ... TMZ has learned.
Shia's rep tells us ... reports that he entered a rehab facility are bogus. She says his bizarre conduct over the last few months is symptomatic of a larger health issue -- alcohol addiction -- and he understands it.
It sounds like Shia is in a 12-step program. The rep says "he has taken the first of many necessary steps toward recovery."
We also got pics Tuesday showing Shia carrying an AA book for all to see.
Lana Del Rey
Here's the Evidence
I Broke Up with My BF
7/1/2014 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lana Del Rey has a message for Barrie-James O'Neill ... check out this photo and then get a clue ... WE'VE BROKEN UP!
Lana was in Portofino, Italy, sucking face with Francesco Carrozzini who has directed a bunch of music videos with famous singers like Beyonce and Rita Ora.
Our photog shot O'Neill a week ago at LAX and he told us reports he broke up with his girlfriend of 3 years were B.S.
If O'Neill is right ... Lana is one convincing -- and hot -- liar.
Books it For Alcohol Treatment

Shia 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.
Lesson NOT Learned

Brittny Gastineau is a glutton for punishment ... strolling with the guy she claims beat her to a pulp just weeks ago.
Brittny and her BF, famed street artist Retna cruised the Century City mall in L.A. Monday ... without the bruises and black eyes that landscaped her face last month after a knock-down, drag-out fight.
Retna's lawyer admits his client did the damage but says Brittny was out of control and it was mutual combat. The lawyer claims Retna was also beat up but no photos ever surfaced showing his injuries.

Jennifer Lopez contorted her body into all sorts of positions this weekend ... rehearsing before her gig at the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party in Miami.
What do all of J.Lo's dance moves have in common? Hmmm ...
Sir Paul McCartney
Here Comes the Sun ...
And Lots of SPF!
6/30/2014 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Paul McCartney got a little help from his friend/wife while roasting in the sun.
Paul and Nancy Shevell have been chilling in Ibiza ... where most people are capable of applying sunscreen on their chests without assistance -- but most people aren't Beatles and Knights.
Sure ... 53-year-old Nancy might look kinda like a nursemaid lathering ointment on a patient -- but we're guessing rubbed up 72-year-old Paul ain't complainin'.
In case you forgot ... it's good to be a Beatle.
Robo Solo Back On One Foot
After 'Star Wars' Injury
6/30/2014 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Harrison Ford isn't going to let a little broken foot keep him down -- he was spotted in London over the weekend with his banged up limb strapped to a contraption possibly borrowed from C-3PO.
Ford suffered the injury while filming "Star Wars: Episode VII" earlier this month. The injury required surgery, and some say reports say he could be on the shelf for as long as 6 months.
So far Disney is sticking to the release date of December 18, 2015 ... so the 71-year-old will have to heal quickly to stick to the shooting schedule.
Hobble carefully, Han.
My Ass, her Boobs

Khloe and Kim Kardashian were in a horse race Friday night ... each clearly trying to take the evening with assets that are undeniably spectacular.
Khloe and French Montana got nice and cuddly sailing on the Utopia III in NYC on the Hudson River ... to celebrate K.K.'s 30th birthday ... and her incredible ass clearly made some partiers go full mast.
And then there's Kim ... whose boobs could save perhaps a dozen lives in a nautical emergency.
Oh yeah ...Kris, Kylie and Kendall Jenner were there too.
Now that's a party we could get behind.
Regrets ... He Had a Few
6/27/2014 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Shia LaBeouf looked like crap as he left the courthouse Friday ... after being arrested for essentially going insane inside Studio 54 in NYC.
Shia had remorse and hangover written all over his face as he walked away, just having pled not guilty to criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.
Shia allegedly threatened cops, yelled obscenities at patrons inside the club and disrupted the performance. He also gabbed an ass or 2 during his drunken tirade.
Witnesses say the actor was acting bizarre the entire evening and looked dirty and unkempt.
I Bank on America
6/27/2014 7:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Poor Casper Smart. No really ... poor Casper Smart, who went hat in hand to Bank of America.
As we previously reported ... Jennifer Lopez did NOT give Casper a fabulous parting gift -- such as money -- when the two broke up a few months back.
So the freshly single/cash strapped Casper made the trek to the Calabasas branch, spoke with a banker and then hightailed it out of the parking lot on his chopper.
The good news -- he has experience babysitting, and that can pay quite a lot.
Welcome to the Smoke Show

Paris Hilton issued a public service reminder Wednesday ... she's still freakin' HOT as hell!
Hilton was strutting around the set of her new music video, wearing a slew of crazy sexy black leather outfits. The video was for her song, "High Off My Love," and Paris recently went looking for "gorgeous, sleek models" via social media.
It's unclear what actually happens in the video, but she could just stand there for four minutes and we'd watch.
Actually, let's hope that's what it is.
Cruise & Beckham
Splitting a Bottle of Red Wine ...
Is That Manly?
6/26/2014 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Tom Cruise and David Beckham split a bottle of red vino ... hanging out in a pub in Notting Hill ... but Becks apparently felt he needed to up his masculinity level a touch ... so he also had a Guinness.
David, you like red wine, it's cool. Own it.
Fans Flock to Burial Site
For Death Anniversary
6/25/2014 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Jackson's devoted fans made their annual pilgrimage to Forest Lawn Cemetery Wednesday to pay their respects on the 5th anniversary of his death.
Many of the fans wore iconic MJ threads as they placed flowers and pics near his final resting place.
The scene was decidedly more respectful than the sight of Conrad Murray thumbing his nose
at the Jackson family.
