Shia LaBeouf Apologizes After Allegedly Head-Butting Man in London Bar Brawl
Shia LaBeouf just can't seem to stop apologizing -- or doing things he needs to apologize for, apparently. On Thursday, Jan. 16, the Nymphomaniac actor, 27, was at a pub in South London when he reportedly got into an argument with another patron at the bar.
According to footage of the alleged incident on TMZ, the Lawless star confronted the man over something that was said about his girlfriend Mia Goth's mother. He can be seen on camera shouting, "What'd you say about my girl's mom?"
The Disney alum then allegedly head-butted the man, prompting others to restrain him. "Don't be sarcastic with us again," a woman can be heard telling the man after LaBeouf was pulled away. "Don't even play smart."
Additional video -- which TMZ says was taken after the reported scuffle -- shows a much calmer LaBeouf apologizing for his actions and explaining why he was upset. "I'm not trying to have, like, any more problems," he says in the clip. "I'm really just trying to make peace...Look, I accept what I get into to do what I love. I'm not trying to s--t on nobody."
"I'm a human being, you know what I mean?" he continues. "I'm super normal...When people want to get hostile, and s--t on my girl's mom or say things that are out of turn..."
The alleged altercation comes on the heels of the actor's strangest month yet. Last week -- after a plagiarism controversy, but before his Twitter feud with Jim Carrey -- LaBeouf announced that he was stepping back from the spotlight.
"In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life," he tweeted. "My love goes out to those who have supported me."
