Shia LaBeouf 'picked on because of fame'

Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf believes that trouble "seems to follow him wherever he goes."

The 26-year-old Hollywood actor reportedly got into a fight over a baseball cap while out drinking with his Nymphomaniac co-star Mia Goth recently.

Although their stint at the Hobgoblin establishment in the New Cross area of the city started out well, Shia got into a scuffle when another man at the bar took the hat off his head.

Shia has been in trouble several times before and can't seem to shirk these types of altercations.

"Shia swears blind that he doesn't court trouble, but it seems to follow him wherever he goes," a source told Radar Online.

"This time, it wasn't his fault. He lost his temper after someone took his baseball cap and told the guy who took it how he felt!

"But, it's this sort of juvenile act that can ignite his short fuse and Shia believes he is picked on by people simply because of his fame.

"As a celebrity he stands out of the crowd and is an easy target for pranksters. He feels he gets victimised for who he is and says that people often try to start a fight with him just for fun."

Shia was handcuffed but subsequently released in 2011 after a fight at a bar in Sherman Oaks, California.

He also was arrested back in 2007 for DUI and was arrested in 2008 for being intoxicated at a drug store in Chicago and was charged with misdemeanour criminal trespassing.
