Rep: Shia LeBeouf Addressing Alcohol Addiction
(Undated) -- A rep for Shia LaBeouf is confirming that the actor is getting treatment for alcohol abuse but denies reports of rehab. In a statement released Tuesday, LaBeouf's publicist called earlier suggestions about the actor checking into a rehabilitation facility, "erroneous," adding that LaBeouf is getting treatment "voluntarily." The statement goes on to say that Shia "understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery."

The 28-year-old actor made headlines last week after he was kicked out of a Broadway production of "Cabaret" and photographed arguing with a homeless man. He was arrested after the Broadway incident and charged with criminal trespass, harassment and disorderly conduct. He is due back in court on July 24th
