Shia recently opened up about his tumultuous relationship with his father, Jeffrey LaBeouf. Jeffrey struggled with heroin addiction for years, according to an interview Esquire published with Shia in March 2018. The actor admitted that he was conceived in a sleeping bag in the back of his father’s van. He grew up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where his had an apartment. Jeffery, a trained commedia dell’arte clown, would perform for money when he wasn’t selling hot dogs and snow cones out of a “tricked-out hotel cart.”
Shia said his mother, Shayna — who he referred to as his “everything” — and his father would get into massive fights. “They loved each other the most when they were creating together,” he said. “When they stopped creating, shit fell apart.” His parents separated when LaBeouf was three.
The Transformers actor’s new look certainly has some depth behind it, which makes us very intrigued about his upcoming film, which is said to be in production at the moment.
