Shia Labeouf Says Kanye West 'Took All My Fucking Clothes'

Shia Labeouf Says Kanye West 'Took All My Fucking Clothes'

Shia's cover story for the April 2018 issue features his first interview since he went to rehab after making headlines due to an arrest for public drunkeness, disorderly conduct and obstruction in Savannah, Georgia last July.

The Transformers star is also candid about his own addictions, including alcohol. "White privilege and desperation and disaster..."

Video footage of the incident, obtained by TMZ.com, showed LaBeouf verbally abusing the arresting officers, telling an African-American cop he was going to hell for the colour of his skin. "It was me trying to absolve myself of guilt for getting arrested", he said.

Among the topics on his arrest, and the happenings while filming The Peanut Butter Falcon, Shia talks about Kanye West and how the rapper grabbed his Yeezy inspiration from him. The actor says West asked for them when he visited his home, after admiring his style.

The "Famous" rapper was pictured wearing the "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" star's hat previous year, with his wife Kim Kardashian West revealing it was his "favourite" piece of headwear but there was a "whole story" behind how he acquired it.




In exchange for being a "fucking sweetheart" to his mom backstage at a concert ("She is, of course, obsessed with Kanye West"), the actor allowed the rapper to raid his closet for a pop-up shop because "it just felt fair".

Since then, LaBeouf has left the blockbuster world far behind, and it looks like he won't be coming back, as the screenwriter of the next "Indiana Jones" film says he won't be bringing back LaBeouf's character from "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" for another round. He took all my f-cking clothes. After bringing his mom to Kanye's backstage, he made a decision to donate his wardrobe to the rapper as he did not feel attached to his wardrobe.

"I f**king love Kanye West", he notes. At that time, Shia's like, "Go for it, my guy". He's going through a lot. "So you want to arrest, what, white people who give a f**k?" "Me and him haven't really been in contact since he blew up onstage and, you know, shit on me". Finally, he was arrested by police for public drunkenness, which LaBeouf now says was a hell of a wakeup call.

"The dude has a lot of my sh**", he adds.
