LaBeouf was in Germany alongside his girlfriend Mia Goth, who is probably best known for her role in Nymphomaniac: Volume II. While getting out of a taxi, the two allegedly got into some kind of verbal altercation. Words were exchanged, and random bystanders eventually got in between the two.
At some point, the situation allegedly got at least a little bit physical. According to Buzzfeed, LaBeouf tried to leave, but Goth allegedly grabbed his backpack and pulled him back in.
“I don’t wanna touch you. I don’t wanna be aggressive. This is the kind of shit that makes a person abusive,” LaBeouf tells Goth after he steps out of the car, getting visibly upset.
He is then heard pleading with Goth, now wearing his backpack, to return it to him, repeatedly saying to her, “Can I have my bag please?,” “I just want my bag” and “Please just give me my bag.”
At some point, she supposedly ended up with a black eye, though how it happened is unclear, and he headed to the airport with some local residents who later told Bild he said he needed to leave before he killed her.
“If I’d have stayed there, I would have killed her,” he says. “It’s hard bro — really fucked up — in your heart.”
The same witness told Bild LaBeouf did not appear to be sober.
While Goth walked around the next day with a blackened eye, Shia injured his hand. It is not known if the hand injury was caused by hitting a wall or another object.
The couple has been romantically linked since 2012, and engagement rumors have been swirling, after Goth was seen sporting a massive ring in March.
