Sources say Shia LaBeouf investigated the inconsistent treatment a month ago and said that the decision to get away from the acting and entertainment business was then made. According to sources he remains in treatment, although it is not clear what treatment he is being treated for.
The allegations of sexual exploitation and controversy come after reports of LaBeouf and the CAA, as many other talents have been sidelined by their representation.
The CAA dropped Marilyn Manson after allegations of misbehavior with Evan Rachel Wood, while WME dropped Armory Hammer amid controversy over graphic messages he allegedly sent to several women on social media. A source said Shia LaBeouf
is the one who decided to walk away from the agency. The CAA did not respond to THR’s request for comment.
On December 11, FKA Tiggs (born Tahial Barnett), filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles against her ex-boyfriend, LaBeouf, for alleged “relentless misconduct” including sexual abuse, assault, and emotional distress. The suit also makes an intentional claim to the actor. Along with many other disturbing and graphic accusations, Barnett an STD.
A stylish and another ex-girlfriend of LaBeouf, Caroline Fow, has also been named in the lawsuit because they were allegedly abused by the actor. It is not clear whether LaBioff’s manager John Crosby remains on his team.
