Shia LaBeouf is the talk of the internet.
The “Honey Boy” actor recently appeared on the “Real Ones with Jon Bernthal” podcast.
He spoke about his wife, Mia Goth, their five-month-old daughter and how he’s changed since becoming a father.
Shia Opens Up About His Wife, Child & Past Behavior
LaBeouf’s reputation has been tarnished by allegations of domestic abuse and violence.
His ex-girlfriend, FKA Twigs, sued the former Disney Channel actor for inflicting physical, emotional and mental abuse on her during their relationship, which lasted just under a year.
In the lawsuit, the singer accused LaBeouf of sexual battery, assault, and infliction of emotional distress according to a New York Times report.
Twigs’ allegations are similar to the allegations Karolyn Pho, another ex of the actor, accused LaBeouf of.

The “Even Stevens” alum is a changed man thanks to his wife.
He revealed it was Goth who reached out to him about reconciling while he was in rehab. The couple had been estranged for two years.
“She saved my f**king life,” LaBeouf admitted. “She was present for me at a time when I didn’t deserve to have nobody in my life, especially her. She gave me hope when I was really running on fumes.”
The couple welcomed a baby girl, Isabel, at the beginning of the year.
Her birth has been a game changer for the actor.
“There’s a lot I need to work on. Having a daughter and knowing that your daughter is one day gonna search your name in a search engine and see that you are a deplorable, disgusting piece of s**t, that s**t hits,” LaBeouf admitted. “I have now until she’s literate to create a relationship with her where she knows me more than this idea of who I am in the public.”
He’s also become more intentional about not “shame spiraling.”
LaBeouf Is Working On Stability
He explained shame spiraling “doesn’t make me useful. It makes me useful to show up for my wife and be stable for my wife.”
LaBeouf exemplified being “stable” when Isabel was diagnosed with hemangioma, a benign vascular tumor on her head.
Despite the terrifying hurdle, LaBeouf describes his daughter as “f**king joyful.”
He also explained Isbael is “testing” him and keeping him “accountable” like an “ultimate parole officer.”
While LaBeouf is making personal leaps and bounds, social media is not buying it.
“Shia LaBeouf is an abuser.. Accountability is for EVERYONE.. but this… disgusting. Shia LaBeouf should be in jail. Disgusting..but..Accountability is not for everyone…,” one person wrote in two separate tweets.
Another tweeted, “Shia LaBeouf still hasn’t truly taken accountability or admitted wrongdoing. If he did, he would settle the lawsuit brought by FKA Twigs and award. Her damages.”
“Good on @FilmUpdates. For reposting. That article where FKA Twigs speaks on the abuse she endured from Shia LaBeouf. Twigs should be the center of conversation; Shia should be at the center of accountability- not going on a press run about his ‘healing,’” another tweeted.
LaBeouf has plans to make “amends” for the rest of his life.
