According to Life & Style, Shia LaBeouf was acting quite strangely at the opening of the El Lay outpost of The Box nightclub Friday night.
Witnesses say they believed he he was having "a public meltdown," spitting water all over his date and Marilyn Manson (WTF!) before "charging through the crowd to exit."
According to people who were at the club:
"Shia picked up a water bottle and shot a mouthful of water all over his seated date’s legs. Then he put more water in his mouth and started spitting it all over his tablemates, including Marilyn Manson. He seemed wasted.
People started taking their seats in front of the stage at the event, but all of a sudden Shia started shouting at his date and getting visibly angry. He lunged through the very thick seated crowd, and the crowd pleaded with him and encouraged him to sit down. They tried to hold him back — but he kept struggling through.
Shia had to climb over people and tear himself out of the grasp of various strangers who were trying to keep him from going crazy. His date panicked and ran out after him. Marilyn looked shocked and annoyed but stayed seated. Shia and the girl did not return.
It was so insane — he just had a total meltdown right in front of everyone. It was completely out of control. He was so angry and physical. He was determined to get out of there."
Even his pal Marilyn Manson tried to calm him down, but Shia wasn't having it.
What's up with that, Shia?? It sounds like you had a major panic attack!
When his rep was asked about the incident, his response was:
"Shia actually left early as planned. He went to see one of the bands performing in the showcase and left after they finished. Exiting through a crowded room was apparently misinterpreted. No altercation occurred."
Hmmm, we're not buying it. Too many people witnessed Shia go apesh-t on the crowd.
Shia, we get wanting to get out of a crowded club, but pushing and spitting water on your friends? Get it together!
