real life

Shia Labeouf tells his girlfriend she's "pushing him" to abuse.

“If I had’ve stayed there, I would’ve killed her.”

It’s a scene that could be from a movie.

Except the fight that was filmed between actors Shia Labeouf and his girfriend Mia Goth was completely unscripted.

Labeouf, 29, was visiting girlfriend Goth, 22, in Germany when the confrontation occurred.

There is no doubt that this video, filmed filmed by “helpful” bystanders, is a gross invasion of privacy, but it also reveals exactly what it looks like when a man blames his partner for his own abusive actions.

In it, Labeouf can be heard saying to the men filming the incident, “I don’t want to touch a woman, I don’t want to hit a woman, but I’m being pushed.”

When talking to Goth, Labeouf throws in a line that will be familiar to any woman who has been in an abusive relationship.

“I don’t want to touch you, I don’t want to be aggressive. This is the kind of shit that makes a person abusive.”

After he leaves, the movie star is taken to the airport by the men filming, and Labeouf can then be heard telling them, “If I had’ve stayed there, I would’ve killed her.”

Labeouf’s increasingly erratic behaviour has drawn attention and criticism recently.

He has been known to storm out of interviews, disrupt Broadway plays and was accused of plagiarising a freestyle rap.

We can only hope that Goth is able to seek support and assistance from those around her.
