‘Transformers’ actor and accused of abuse, Shia LaBeouf converts to Catholicism


Actor from the ‘Transformers’ franchise, Shia LaBeouf has just converted to Catholicism and is considering becoming a deacon, according to the Catholic News Agency. The Franciscan-Western Capuchin American province published photos of him and reported on his new moment.

“We are thrilled to share that our dear friend Shia LaBeouf fully entered the Church this past weekend through the sacrament of confirmation. The Capuchin Franciscan friars are overjoyed to welcome him and testify to his deep commitment to his journey of faith “, says an excerpt from the publication.

“Shia LaBeouf, known for his incredible talent and passion in the entertainment industry, embarked on a profound spiritual journey that led him to embrace the teachings of the Catholic Church. His decision to fully enter the Church is a testament to his sincere desire to grow in his relationship with God and living the values ​​of the Gospel”, states another excerpt.

In 2020, Shia was accused of abusing singer FKA Twings, who at the time was his ex-girlfriend. She stated that he knowingly transmitted sexually transmitted diseases and strangled her.

On one occasion, she said, LaBeouf drove “recklessly, removing his seat belt and threatening to crash if she didn’t declare her love for him.” When leaving the car, according to Twigs’ report, he followed her, attacked her and threw her against the vehicle while shouting at her, before forcing her back into the car.

In response to the New York Times, which reported the story, the actor said he was an alcoholic and was not in a position to comment on the effects of his actions on people.

“I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations. I have been abusive to myself and everyone around me for years. I have a history of hurting those closest to me. I am ashamed of this history and I am sorry for those who I hurt. There’s nothing more I can say.”
