Shia LaBeouf is not currently represented by CAA. The actor and Hollywood’s top talent agency have parted ways amid the controversy surrounding LaBeouf.
ET learned that LaBeouf, 34, is receiving hospital care and has decided to step away from his acting career to focus on his health. The actor was not fired by CAA, but is on hiatus with the agency.
News of LaBeouf’s treatment and departure from his agency, as first reported Variety, comes two months after a lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend, musician FKA Twigs, in December. The lawsuit accuses the actor of “relentless abuse,” which includes sexual assault, battery and inflicting emotional distress.
The singer, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, spoke with the New York Times and alleged that during her relationship with him Transformers star, which lasted about a year after the two met when she was cast in her 2019 film, Honey boy – grabbed her to the point of bruising her, isolated her from her professional team and also knowingly gave her a sexually transmitted disease.
In an email to the outlet about her claims, LaBeouf wrote: “I am not in a position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel. I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations. I have been abusive to myself and everyone else. that surround me for years. I have a history of hurting the people closest to me. I am ashamed of that history and sorry for those I hurt. There is nothing more I can really say. “
“I have not been cured of my PTSD and alcoholism,” he continued, noting that he was in therapy and was a sober member of a 12-step program. “But I am committed to doing what I have to do to recover, and I will forever mourn people for hurting me along the way.”
The lawsuit against LaBeouf is the latest in a long series of legal problems for the actor, who has been arrested multiple times in recent years for multiple alleged crimes including public intoxication, disorderly conduct, petty theft and assault.
