Shia LeBeouf Being Treated For Alcoholism

The actor has not entered rehab, despite reports.

Shia LaBeouf is reportedly beginning treatment for alcohol addiction, days after the troubled actor was arrested on charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct and harassment after being “disruptive” at a Broadway showing of “Cabaret.”

Contrary to reports, LaBeouf has not entered a rehab facility, but has started a 12-step program to treat alcoholism, according to TMZ.

Shia’s Legal Trouble: A Timeline

A rep for the actor told the site that “he has taken the first of many necessary steps toward recovery.”

The news comes after a troubled — and at times, rather bizarre — few years for the “Nymphomaniac” star, with his “Cabaret” arrest being only his most recent run-in with the law. In 2008, he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor drunk driving after refusing a Breathalyzer test. Three years later, he was taken into custody after a bar fight in Los Angeles.

LaBeouf’s rep had not responded to MTV News’ request for comment by press time.
