Yesterday, we talked about how Shia LaBeouf reportedly had a “violent altercation“ with his girlfriend, Mia Goth, in Germany. Mia was said to have suffered a black eye, and the two fought on a sidewalk before bystanders broke the pair apart. Then the locals gave Shia a ride to the airport. The guys who gave Shia a lift took video of the incident and sold it to Entertainment Tonight, which made the clip unembeddable. You can see the full video here, and then we’ll discuss.
Shia freely spoke in front of his newfound buddies. To Mia, he said stuff like, “I don’t want to touch you. I don’t want to be aggressive” and “this is the kind of sh*t that makes a person abusive.” Then he explained, “I don’t want to hit a woman, but I’m getting pushed.” Those words will sound familiar to anyone who’s ever been in an abusive relationship. The abuser is very quick to place blame upon the victim. If only the victim didn’t push the buttons, the abuser wouldn’t feel “provoked.” This is a disgusting excuse, but abusers love to make their victims feel guilty. Often times, the tactic works all too well.
Once Shia hopped into the car, he started rambling like a bizarro man. He held up his phone and tried to Facetime Megan Fox, who didn’t answer his call. It’s almost as if Shia knew he was being recorded, and he knew Mia would see the video footage. He’s acting erratic, yet he should be held responsible for his behavior. Shia has all sorts of problems, but the way he pushed the blame onto Mia indicates an abusive pattern.
