Shia LaBeouf is not in rehab. Got that? The controversial actor is, however, undergoing treatment for alcohol addiction, according to a statement by his representatives.

The Fury actor ran into trouble with the law in New York last week when police claimed he lit a cigarette in a Broadway theater. Witnesses said Shia yelled at the actors on stage during a performance of Cabaret and was generally drunk and disruptive.
On Friday, he was charged with criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and harassment.

"He 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 statement said. "Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction."
LaBeouf first ran into trouble with the law when he was 21 and refused to leave a drugstore after a security guard said he was drunk. One year later, LaBeouf was arrested at the scene of a car accident on suspicion of DUI.
He caused controversy in 2013 after being accused of plagiarising a short movie, and later attended the Berlin Film Festival with a paper bag over his head that proclaimed, "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE."
The recent release of Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction, is the first in the action series not to star the actor.
