Shia LaBeouf may have alcohol and/or drug problems, but he’s not yet in rehab.
There had been reports circulating that the actor – who was on Friday arrested for alcohol-fueled disorderly conduct – had checked himself into a ‘celebrity-frequented treatment facility in Hollywood’.
But ENTmania! learned that it is not the case, even though LaBeouf will eventually check himself into rehab at a later time.
Meanwhile, he was spotted holding an Alcoholics Anonymous book in LA on Tuesday morning (above) … which means he may have already taken a step to combat his alcohol problem.
Update: 7:35 pm EST
LaBeouf’s rep has released a statement confirming that he is not in rehab, but has started outpatient treatment for alcoholism:
‘Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction. 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. There will be no further comments made at this time.’
