Shia LaBeouf is not in rehab.
But the actor is receiving professional help.
Despite earlier reports, LaBeouf hasn't checked into any kind of official facility. But the former Transformers star does now admit he has a drinking problem and is seeking treatment for alcoholism.
He openly carried around the Alcoholics Anonymous textbook earlier this week and his rep says in a statement to TMZ that LaBeouf "has taken the first of many necessary steps toward recovery."
Shia was arrested for disorderly conduct over the weekend after causing a scene during a Broadway show.
Days prior to this incident, he tried to start a fight outside a strip club and he also chased a homeless man through the street on the same evening police took him into custody for his behavior on Broadway.
In the past few months, LaBeouf has also been caught on tape getting into an argument with a bar patron and photographed with a bag over his head on the red carpet of a movie premiere.
The dude needs help. Let's hope he gets it.
