Shia LaBeouf blames Georgia arrest on 'white privilege'

Esquire

Shia LaBeouf has made more headlines for his numerous arrests and out-of-control behaviour than for his film roles in recent years, and that's something the 31-year-old actor wants to change.

He said that when he was younger, he overheard a man raping his mother Shayna and couldn't do anything to stop it.

He recalled: "I froze". One officer "especially" was going to hell, LaBeouf said, "because he's a black man". Dave [their neighbour] came running over. If you can remember, in Kanye's 2016 track "No More Parties In LA", he rapped: "I wish I dressed as fresh as Shia LaBeouf".

LaBeouf says he was diagnosed with PTSD at rehab, stemming from childhood trauma.

"The first time I got arrested with a real charge, it stemmed from the same sh**", he explains. It's the same feeling of "You need to avenge your mother" he says contributed to his first arrest when he went after a man who "bumped into my mother's vehicle with his auto in a parking lot".

The "Nymphomaniac" star - who didn't use the knife - bought a gun as soon as he was able to and keeps it by his bed. I've always thought somebody was coming in.

Zayn and Gigi Hadid split after more than two years together
She had also split up with USA pop heartthrob Joe Jonas, 28, just weeks before they got together . A source told the British newspaper, "Sadly Zayn and Gigi have separated".

LaBeouf tied the incident into his stint serving ten weeks in court-ordered rehab past year after he was arrested for arrested for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct, saying he learned he had PTSD from the incident.

"What went on in Georgia was mortifying", LaBeouf says, reflecting on the incident.

'White privilege and desperation and disaster. It came from a place of self-centered delusion...

The entire ordeal was captured on camera, forcing the former child star to issue a public apology in which he said he was "deeply ashamed" by his behavior, which he called a "new low". "Zack can't not shoot straight, and bless him for it, 'cause in that moment, I needed a straight shooter who I couldn't argue with". Spike Lee is making a movie. "Me and him haven't really been in contact since he blew up onstage and, you know, s- on me".

"He goes to the money and pushes to try to get me in the movie, the money says no, and that's the end of me hanging out with Spike Lee for this film".
